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.

We don’t really know why DMC dubbed this one the DURO China Edition without making any mention of the car being sold in that country. But as far as aesthetics and performance upgrades go, this tuned-up Continental GT will fit right in on a number of high-class markets.
From all the carbon-fiber aero components to the impressive performance upgrade that nets a significant increase in output for the British luxury sports coupe, DMC really proved its worth once again. As if there was any doubt in the first place.
The new Bentley Continental GT V8 may carry similar styling details as its predecessor but its new 4.0-liter, V-8 engine is definitely one to take serious note of.
It delivers 500 horsepower at 6,000 rpm and 487 pound-feet of torque available between 1,700 to 5,000 rpm, allowing it to spring from 0 to 60 mph in less than 5 seconds, while keeping top speed at around 180 mph. Fuel economy and CO2 emissions have also been improved significantly with Bentley promising that when equipped with the new V8 engine, the Continental models will be capable of traveling over 500 miles on a single tank of fuel.

DMC Germany has been placing themselves on the list of supercar tuners in recent years. While quickly gaining respect as as a refiner of Italian Sports Cars, the luxury refiner has entered the the market of British Exotics a few months ago with their takes on the McLaren 12C and the Bentley GTC. The latter turned out to be so successful that a special version is now being launched: Officially presenting the DMC Bentley GT "DURO", China Edition.
Even though the standard 2013 Bentley GT Coupe is a fine car by itself, DMC’s high standards would find ways to make a good automobile better. The Duesseldorf Germany based tuner has done exactly that, and created a mouth watering fashionista on 4 wheels. The carbon fiber front bumper, which fits 2012+ models has been completely redesigned and extends the car to a further 2", adding to the sporty look. Day-Light LED’s further improve that new front fascia, making it significantly different from the original car.
A new design approach, which may split the crowd into lovers and haters can be found on the side skirts. Instead of traditional side diffuser, the German designers added elegant carbon fiber wing-lets that not only improve the aerodynamics, but also add a fresh element to the cars overall look. The carbon fiber rear bumper may be the most significant part of DMC’s DURO, since it’s design is clearly stronger and muscular when compared with the OEM. As seen on previous styling packages, the company put a special attention to the detail and high quality, while improving the overall design with a more aggressive look that stays in line with the original values. The result is a unique Bentley GT Coupe, that received a DMC style carbon fiber body kit, new wheels and an exciting performance upgrade. The separate carbon fiber diffuser which adds under rear fascia not only support the aerodynamics, but also add a certain power look to the car which is normally very conservative. Final touch is achieved by the added carbon fiber rear spoiler, which completes the new appearance.
The engineers also put a special attention to the performance package: The Germans were able to achieve a new 672 HP / 494 KW, as a result from the titanium exhaust, Sport Air Filters and an optimized Electronics. Most importantly the improved torque of 780 Nm pushes owners of this beast back into the seats, making you wonder if it’s in fact a Bentley you are sitting in, or a Lamborghini which DMC is normally known for. The modified engine improves the 0-60 MPH to 4.5 seconds and enables new top speeds of up to 325 km/H.
The newly gained power must be controlled by DMC’s wheels: The diamond-forged rims come in 10x22" and make the car stand out in the crowd. The 295/25/22 tyre that comes along, make this a true eye-catcher in the roads of China. They come in a matte black version, which in combination with the custom paint-finish of the car are special features of the China Edition. The interior is getting the typical DMC make-ocer as well: An individual creation of art, which is tailored to each owner, brings together a fireworks of sins and pleasures. Carbon Fiber, fine Italian Leather and other rare materials are being hand-crafted for DMC’s exclusive clientel.
