There is always at least one person out there who is not satisfied with the tuning packages provided to the masses. In fact, there is typically many more than one, but only a few have the financial means to walk right into an exclusive tuning firm and request a one-off model to be made. This is what one UK man did when he called up Scotland tuning firm - Imperium - and asked to get a one-off bespoke Bentley Continental GT tailored to his exact specifications.
This special Continental GT features uniquely designed front and rear apron upgrades, aggressive carbon exposed side skirts, a subtle boot lip spoiler, and a rear carbon fiber diffuser. The special Imperium Continental GT will also receive one-off designed and manufactured ultra light fully forged alloy wheels. They will get a special design, color, and finish as directed by the client himself.
Next to the exterior updates, the model will also receive an optimized braking system, a lowered sport suspension, and an ECU upgrade. The exhaust system has been individually tailored to the exact level of exhaust noise and depth of sound desired by the client. The tuner hasn’t revealed how these changes will improve the 6.0 liter W12 engine’s performance, but expect a bit more than the car’s current 567 HP.
This highly detailed client also provided details as to how the interior was to be made over, choosing specially hand selected luxurious leathers, tailor made carbon fiber, refined wood trim, ultra suede, classic black piano finishes, and a beautiful individually built and designed ergonomic sports steering wheel.
Just the fact that this guy had a hand in just about every aspect of the transformation of the vehicle is enough for us to drool incessantly. The added - and truly tremendous - bonus is that he gets to take it home.
