With a Bentley traditionally mastered any desired gait. Basically, they come on stately, soft soles, but now and then as an ambassador of a huge thunderstorm with a maximum of 12 cylinders. A Bentley is suitable for it Bella Figura on the big boulevards of the world and at the same time you can intimidate the competition in prestigious car races. But MTM (Motoren Technik Mayer) still sees a lot of potential there. The latest MTM creation (MTM-Bentley New Continental GT) is based on the originally 507 PS or 528 PS strong GT with V8, which now has a whopping 772 PS. That's just 265 more horsepower that can be achieved using the special MTM engine management and exhaust gas turbocharger including the front pipe.
There is also a metal catalytic converter and new high-performance fuel pumps. So brilliantly strengthened, the MTM Continental goes to 100 km / h in under four seconds and just 7 seconds later the 200 km / h barrier is broken. MTM specifies a top speed of around 330 km / h, which catapults him into a Ferrari 488 GTB or a Lamborghini Huracan LP610-4. You should keep in mind that the GT has an empty weight of over 2.300kg and is thus easily 800kg over a 488 GTB. Phenomenal key data that are of course also supported by the standard all-wheel drive. But almost 800 hp also want to be brought to a standstill again. For this purpose, an MTM carbon-ceramic brake has been installed which has lush 420 × 40 mm brake discs on the front axle that are gripped by Brembo 6-piston brake calipers.
And of course there is also something for the eye and so the Birkin Speed Eight got sporty, elegant Bimoto rims in the dimensions 10,5 x 21 inches or, on request, a size smaller in 10 x 20 inches. The new Alus are fitted with Michelin Pilot Sport tires in the 285/35 format. So that the wheelset sits perfectly in the wheel arch and the GT is also a bit more agile, MTM uses the F-Cantronic II system to lower the body subtly, which nevertheless ensures that the comfort awareness of traditional Bentley chauffeurs is retained. And a subtle aerodynamic kit was also installed. At the front, a carbon front splitter on the original front apron provides more contact pressure and an individual look and at the rear there was a fixed rear spoiler which is of course also made of carbon.
And of course, the extra power of the V8 should also be audible. MTM realizes this with the in-house MTM sports exhaust system Bentley Continental GT V8 / V8S which is equipped with exhaust flaps. On request, but there are only MTM rear silencer Bentley Continental V8 / V8S which also have exhaust flaps. And where does the addition "Birkin Speed Eight" come from? The Continental gets its stage name thanks to one of the enthusiastic “Bentley Boys” from the British manufacturer's Sturm und Drang times. Tim Birkin was a gifted and fearless full-throttle youngster in the 20s who chased his Bentley around the circuit on the Brooklands racetrack at an average speed of phenomenal 220 km / h.
