German tuner DMC knows a thing or two about going overboard on some of its projects. Not that it’s a bad thing because anytime DMC has a program to unveil, we all stand up and take notice.
It’s latest creation definitely lives up to that billing.
The matte-black finish on the body’s exterior already speaks to us the way matte finishes always do. A new carbon-fiber front bumper was also installed, which not only increases the car’s length by two inches but also improves its aerodynamic capabilities. As if the already fine-handling Continental GT needed any more it.
Other new additions to the exterior package include new LED daytime running lights, new side skirts, a new carbon-fiber rear bumper with a lightweight diffuser, a new carbon-fiber rear spoiler and a new set of 22-inch, diamond-forged, matte-black alloys wrapped in 295/25R22 tires.
On the performance front, DMC installed a new titanium exhaust system, a new sports air filter, and a remapped ECU, which allows the luxury coupe’s 4.0-liter V-8 to now produce 672 horsepower and 575 pound-feet of torque — a nice spike from the factory 500 horsepower and 487 pound-feet of torque. That’s enough power to hit 60 mph in just 4.5 seconds to go with a top speed of 202 mph.
That’s a long list of incredible upgrades, enough to justify DMC’s standing as one of the world’s most aggressive aftermarket tuners.
