It looks like the German tuner, DMC, got tired of updating McLaren and Ferrari models and it has now turned its attention to the new Bentley Continental GT Coupe. The project is called "Dura" (Spanish word for "Hard") and is focused on improving the car’s overall design and adding a few extra ponies under the hood.
For the exterior, the German tuner is offers a carbon-fiber body kit that includes a new front bumper, new side skirts and new wing-lets replacing the traditional side diffusers. For the rear, the kit adds a new bumper, new diffuser and a new spoiler. The car sits on 22-inch diamond-forged wheels wrapped in 295/25R22 tires. On the inside, DMC combined carbon fiber with fine Italian leathers.
In order to increase the W-12 engine’s output, the tuner installed a new titanium exhaust, sport air filters and optimized electronics. The end result is an output of 672 horsepower and a peak torque of 575 pound-feet – a gain of 105 horsepower and 59 pound-feet. The sprint from 0 to 60 mph is now made in 4.5 seconds – 0.2 seconds faster than the stock model – and the top speed goes up to 201 mph.
DMC Germany has been placing themselves on the list of supercar tuners in recent years. Appearing out of the nowhere, they gained respect as as a refiner of Italian Sports Cars. With their recent take on the McLaren MP4, the luxury manufacturer showcased that it’s ready to enter the market of British Exotics. Today’s introduction underlines that plan with a strong exclamation: Officially presenting the DMC Bentley GTC "DURO".
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 automobiles better. The Duesseldorf Germany based tuner has done exactly that, and created a mouth watering fashinista on 4 wheels.
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 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. 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 come along, make this a true eye-catcher in the roads.
The interior is getting the typical DMC make over. An individual creation of art, which is tailored to each owner, brings together a fireworks of sins and pleasures: Carbon Fiber, Fine italian Leathers and other rare materials are being hand-crafted for DMC’s exclusive clientele around the world.
