Startech Goes To Town With The Bentley Continental GT V8 Speed
The Bentley Continental GT Speed certainly does not lack speed, or looks, but if you want to make it look even faster, Startech has a got a solution. And it is an elegant one to boot. Aerodynamics play a critical part, and it starts from front spoiler which attaches to the front bumper. At speed, this component reduces lift on the front axle for increased stability.
The same intention is behind the development of the new C-Blade air deflector elements, which are mounted to the left and right of the coupe’s rear window and improve directional stability at high speeds. Also new are the rocker panels, which give the car an even lower and more elongated appearance. In addition, they also calm the airflow along the sides of the vehicle.
Each component is made from carbon, available in a choice of glossy or matte finish but can also be painted in vehicle or contrasting colour.
At the rear, Startech incorporates a carbon diffuser that comes with an LED module at the centre which serves as the rear fog lamp and back-up lamp.
The new rear component also provides the perfect backdrop for the four billet aluminium tailpipes. It’s not just for looks: the design includes an integrated system of butterfly valves the are controlled from the cockpit and lets the driver choose between a subtle “coming home” mode and the “sport” position.
The 22 inch five double-spoke Monostar G wheel design are forged and lightweight; they can also be painted in any colour the buyer decides.
As for the cabin, Startech has a two-tone grey and anthracite interior detailed with diamond-shaped quilting on the inner sections of the door panels and seats. Even the boot area shares the same colour scheme, right down to the orange piping! Of course, carbon fibre is used in the interior as well.
Startech’s speedometer reaches 400km/h which sports a new design shared with the rev counter. Key difference is that the ‘zero’in the six-o-clock position. The customer can specify the colour of the dials, numerals and even the needles. Well, why not?
