After much teasing and some previewing, Bulgarian tuner Vilner finally took the wraps off its unique Bentley Continental GT. Turns out it was worth the wait, as it is one of the sickest packages we’ve ever seen for the Bentley GT. The Continental is a car with swagger and style, and Vilner’s kit does a good job of multiplying that.
Those of you who are familiar with Vilner’s previous works know that they are best known as interior decorators. With this car though, Vilner is officially establishing itself as a fully-fledged tuner, for not only it boasts a magnificent interior, Vilner’s GT also comes with a superb body kit and a fine engine treatment.
The exterior kit is designed based on the customer’s desired specs. So thank goodness that he was a man of great taste. The packages includes all the bits and pieces you find on other tuned cars; stuff like front splitter, rear sing, diffuser, side skirts, etc., but on this car they are so well designed and look so cool. To appreciate this better, you can look at Mansory’s Bentley GT and see how ostentatious that looks compared to Vilner’s effort.
The car is widened, lowered, and wrapped in a matte graphite gray film, which in combination with black wheels, tinted windows, and smoked lights, create an intimidating, yet very cool appearance. The looks are backed up by heavy treatment for the W12 engine, which boosts the power from the standard 552 hp (it’s a first-gen GT) to 660 hp.
Last but by no means least, Vilner completely revamps the luxurious interior and replaces all the traditional leather and wood work with exotic materials such as Alcantara and carbon fiber. It’s not ordinary kinds of suede and carbon that they’ve used here. They are the finest, and feature unique color, pattern, and stitching. Every single surface is modified, from the seats, to the pillars, door panels, the roof, even seatbelts.
Vilner has not revealed how much this project has cost the customer, but exclusivity does not come cheap.
