The colour red seems to be the general theme of Redley.
The average Bentley customer opts for one of a few shades, from silver down to black. Although some owners opt for a classy dark green or blue, the owner of this Bentley had a very different idea in mind.
Showcased by Strasse Wheels, this Continental GT has been fitted with a full set of 10-spoke SV1 Deep Concave FS wheels – coming in at a dear price of $1,875 USD (A$2,400) each. A staggered setup, the front measures 10×22 inches while the rear sits at 11.5×22 inches, and the finish matches the car’s paintwork – a red ring around the outside of the wheel with gloss black in the centre.
The wheels are a popular choice for high-end cars, as they’ve already been installed on many supercars including the McLaren 650S and 720S, Audi R8 V10 Spyder and Lamborghini Huracan. They can be powder coated in various colours – and the owner of this Continental GT has certainly opted for a striking combo.
Apart from the wheels however, this Continental GT is totally stock, producing the original 467kW (626hp) and 900Nm from its massive 6.0L twin-turbocharged W12. Through a Porsche eight speed PDK driving all four wheels, the luxury heavy-weight manages a 0-100km/h sprint in just 3.7 seconds and goes onto a top speed of 333km/h.
Continental buyers can also opt for the less powerful twin-turbo V8 derived from the Porsche Panamera Turbo, rated at 404kW (542hp) and 770Nm, and although lighter in this configuration, the reduction in power means the same acceleration sprint is managed in 4.0 seconds, making it 0.3 seconds slower than the W12 variant.
