2011 Bentley Continental GT Cabriolet by Prior Design

Anyone taking on the task of tuning a Bentley Continental GT Convertible better know what they are doing if they want to end up making the car look even more luxurious than it already is. Thankfully, Prior Design has had a little experience in this department with tuning projects such as the BMW M5 F10 and the Mercedes E-Class Coupe . Their newest project reshapes the convertible with aerodynamic pieces and some interior modifications.

The aerodynamic kit includes a new front bumper with an integrated carbon fiber bottom lip that reduces the updraft at the front axle. It also includes two air inlets on the hood, a massive sports grille with two carbon-fiber air outlets on top, a set of traditional side sills, and a new bumper with integrated diffuser for the rear. The final touch has been provided by a stainless steel sports exhaust system cleanly integrated into the tail. For the interior, the tuner jazzed it up a bit with wooden decorations and exclusive carbon fiber insertions.

Under the hood, everything remained unchanged so the customer will still get the 6 liter W12 engine that delivers a total of 567 HP and a peak torque of 516 lbs-ft. With this setup, the car sprints from 0 to 60 mph in 4.4 seconds and can hit a top speed of 198 mph.

Updated 05/20/2011: After an initial announcement back in April, Bentley has released today the official details and images on their package for the Bentley Continental GT.

Yeah, its really a good thing that they gave the Bentley additional engine power, that will certainly help a lot in improving its track time as well as its performance.

I have hears first about this engine in the Mercedes car and I have to admit that I’m impressed with the boost in the power at least Bentley has a high performing sportscar.

Wow! It seems that Bentley wasn’t satisfy with the performance of the Continental GT that’s why they will be using the W engine! I bet the power output of this car will be around 600 hp! However, the top speed is kind of depressing!

I want it red, see its facade? It looks so cool, but I don’t like the headlights, perhaps something that looks fierce or design something new to make it more stylish, I know boys love cars, but girls also do.

I like how the front of this one looks. It has that classic Bentley feel to it, while still looking fresh and new. Prior Design really made it good this time.

hmm. Well, the power is great but I’m not satisfy with the top speed. BTW, the exterior is not that good and I have a doubt in the reliability of this car.

As far as I know, the continental GT is the most powerful model of the Bentley. Well, the engine proof it all.

Hmm. Maybe the carbon fiber material used in this car has something to do with the less weight and increase in the boost power.

haha. This is weird! I think this car has a more powerful engine compared to the XJ Jaguar. The output power is extremely good for a Bentley. 

Yeah, this one won’t likely be the final color. But I can say that I like the overall design on this one, definitely one of the best looking Bentley convertibles that I have seen.

I don’t like the color on this one. Looks a bit ugly with all that brown. But of course, I know that this one won’t be the final color, so I would be looking forward to that.
