(from MTM Press
Release) MTM's Birkin Edition upgrades performance of Bentley
650 Hp and 795 Nm
with the Birkin Edition kit for the Continental GT, GTC, Flying
Spur, GT Speed, GTC Speed and Continental Supersports
Unbeatable: the 331 km/h world record with MTM's Bentley
Continental GT still stands after three years.
Exclusive 21-inch "bimoto" alloy rims.
Even though Bentley
offers greater power and performance in the new Speed version
standard models, the special series offer 650 Hp performance in
addition to an exclusive sporty look. After nearly three years, the
331 km/h world record still stands achieved by a sportscar with
the MTM Bentley Continental GT. With MTM's Birkin Edition kit, the
Continental GT, GTC and Flying Spur series can be upgraded with an
exclusive and sporty look, fully in line with the legendary Bentley
Boys, who exerted such an influence on the racing scene around 75
The modified performance data with which MTM has revived the Bentley
cannot be documented in purely technical terms, but performance is
also proved on the track in the true sense of the word "experience".
The MTM Bentley took three seconds off the standard counterpart on
the short Hockenheim circuit, and also three seconds in the 0 to 200
km/h sprint, which the MTM Bolide achieved in 15.9 seconds. No
wonder: With his great love for detail and technical efficiency, the
developer Roland Mayer pushed the crucial 90 more Hp out of the
12-cylinder standard engine at Wettstetten near Ingolstadt.
650 Hp is the result, and the in-house performance tests recorded
795 Nm, supported by a perfectly coordinated exhaust system with
muffler and throttle control which, in addition to the increased
performance, delivers a beguiling sound.
As far as the optics and external appearance are concerned, MTM has
made no obvious changes to the bodywork. The four-pipe exhaust
system with MTM's F-Cantronic gives the tail its visual effect:
approximately 30 mm lower than in the standard series. The small
intelligent electronic control unit lowers the 2.4-tonner by 35 mm
at the rear axle and by around 25 mm at the front axle. Combined
with 21-inch alloy rims, the timeless Bimoto design lends an
exclusive, sportier look to the Bentley, which not only offers more
dynamics to buyers of new vehicles, but will also appeal to those
who already drive a Bentley.
