Meet the ex
MTM CGTC Birkin Edition


Nevertheless, Motorentechnik Mayer (MTM) has a number of tuning measures up its sleeve which accentuate the car’s strenghts without distorting its character. For example, besides a compact attachment at the rear, no measures are implemented that might detract from the elegant appearance of the Continental GTC. MTM was not looking to alter the characteristic and the unmistakable shape.

To add the finishing touch to the visuals the Bavarian tuning specialist equips this British car with a set of chunky 21- inch bimoto alloy wheels. However, a great deal more is going on beneath the bodywork.

MTM supplies various performance kits. The original 560 bhp as standard and a top speed of 318 km/h should actually suffice for the highways of this world, but MTM always aspires to the maximum. In an initial power class, MTM boosts the power to 650 bhp out of the large 6-liter W12 engine, which then generates a staggering 795 Nm with ease.

The 2.5 ton blockbuster converts this increased torque in 4.2 seconds for the sprint from “zero to hundred”. The MTM-modified coupe version of the GTC, the GT, produced proven 331 km/h, making it the fastet ex-Bentley ever built! Given the same power, the MTM Continental GTC is therefore one of the fastest ways to drive “topless”.
