Looking more like something that might roll out of a SoCal tuning shop like Platinum Motorsport, German tuning house Edo Competition has just released details of its version of the Bentley Continental GT Speed.

The Edo Conti GT Speed makes a total of 680hp and 649 ft-lbs of torque, thanks to a modified ECU and a stainless steel exhaust system. The new exhaust system even features butterfly valves with an optional remote so driver’s can decide when they want to open up the valves and let the full sound of the W12 engine be heard.

Thanks to these performance mods, Edo Competition claims its new GT can hit 62 mph in just 4.2 seconds and blast on to a new top speed of 211 mph!

Other modifications include 20-inch wheels (which can be custom painted) and new control unit for Bentley’s air suspension, which allows the car to sit up to 35mm lower than stock.

Surprisingly, the aftermarket extremists seem to have been outdone by the OEMs this time, as Bentley’s Continental Supersports, while making less power, has a significantly faster 0-60 time of just 3.7 seconds.
