Charlotte, North Carolina is a hotbed for NASCAR racing so it only seems fair to say that the folks over there know a thing or two about cars. That being said, we are not in the least bit surprised that one of the finest European tuners in America come from Charlotte in the form of GMP Performance. For their latest project, the boys over at GMP took the task of building a fancy program for no less than the Bentley Continental GT .
Thanks to some help from Hamann and ADV.1 Wheels, GMP Performance successfully tricked out the British luxury sports coupe to pretty intense levels. The first order of business was importing the wide-body kit from Germany while also fitting in various new components, including a new front bumper, flared extensions on the fenders, new side skirts, a new rear wing, and a matte charcoal gray finish that was lifted from the Lamborgini Reventon . On top of the exterior enhancements, GMP Performance also fitted the Continental GT with a new set of 22" ADV.1 alloy wheels, which comes with brushed gunmetal centers and matte black lips & inner barrels.
Rounding out the extensive tuning work done on the Continental GT is a performance upgrade that includes remapping the car’s ECU unit as well as the addition of a new stainless steel exhaust system that increases the car’s output from 552 horsepower and 479 lb/ft of torque all the way up to 620 horsepower and 600 lb/ft of torque.
