Ireland based tuners Onyx Concept have moved away from their more traditional market of tuning SUV’s and their latest product is one of the finest automobiles out of Britain, the Bentley Continental GT. The by product of the Onyx Concept touch is the Bentley Continental Platinum GTO kit that boosts power up to around 640hp from the standard car’s rather mediocre 553hp.
Aesthetically there’s the usual case of a updated front bumper which now includes carbon fiber modifications, LED daytime running lights as well as a front carbon fiber splitter. The upgraded car also includes widened arches contributes to a more aggressive stance. In the back a new rear bumper with a carbon fiber diffuser that looks like it came straight off a Ferrari has been integrated into the bumper together with a carbon decklid spoiler that oddly matches the diffuser.
Suspension on the car has been lowered with new 22-inch matte black wheels also included. This looks to offer little-to-no clearance should the car hit a hard bump.
According to the company, the Onyx Bentley Continental Platinum GTO package should be available in March. Below is the complete press release from Onyx.
