If you want to know what rules the world, have a look at this. Not at
the car, at its name: 'Continental Imperator'! By its name, the thing must
be the king of cars. Indeed this Bentley conversion by Hamann Motorsport
does definitely not achieve the rates of super cars the likes of one
Koenigsegg CCX or Bugatti 16.4 Veyron, but its performance may be said
Thanks to a new exhaust system and revised engine control, the Bentley
Continental GT generates 70 Hp more. Together with the 560 standard horses,
the herd includes 630 animals now. The engine of the 'Speed' edition develops
40 Hp more by these measures, which adds up to 650 ponies. Top speed of
both upgrades is roughly 5 Kph higher, around 330 Kph.
These increases probably neither require the aerodynamics modifications, nor 22
Inch wheels (there's a 21 Inch option too), nor the lowering by 30mm at the front and 20 at the rear axle. But,
of course, it has a noticeable effect on the looks. The car body is 70mm broader
and provides room for up to 11 inch wide rims this way. Since LED day driving
lights is a must, the Imperator's front bumper features such things too.
Individual interiors can also be realised by the use of leather and Alcantara.
Even a three-spoke sports steering wheel including all standard functions is
gettable for Bentley's 'small' two-door. Okay, okay, British understatement is
something different than that and this Imperator doesn't make the world go round,
but being boss of 650 horses is cool too.
