German tuning studio MTM has revealed its Bentley Continental GTC Birkin Edition super-convertible. If you are familiar with the world of fashion, you probably know that Birkin is a sub-brand of the French fashion house Hermes and is reserved for their ultra-expensive handbags that sometimes can cost more than a second-hand Bentley.
Unlike its fellow tuner Mansory, MTM limited itself to only technical adjustments, leaving the GTC’s elegant appearance untouched.
The Bentley Continental GTC MTM Birkin Edition features a comprehensive engine upgrade program consisting of two main stages.
The first stage, which is purely electronic, gets the GTC’s original 6.0-liter W12’s power output increased from 560 hp and 650 Nm to more impressive 635 hp and 780 Nm respectively. The second stage bumps those figures to 650 hp and to 795 Nm.
With these enhancements, the 2.5 ton monster takes only 4.2 seconds to jump from zero to 100 km/h, which is 0.6 seconds better than the standard Bentley Continental GTC can deliver.
To finish the picture, MTM has also added a four-pipe stainless steel exhaust, 21-inch Bimoto alloys and reprogrammed suspension software.
