MC Customs, based out of Miami, Florida, specializes in high-end builds for celebrities, professional athletes and the layman with a thick enough wallet to satisfy their customizing tastes. Their collection of vehicles include Rolls-Royces and Bentleys, one of which is this custom widebody Continental Supersports. While its styling may not be for everybody, there’s no denying the quality and craftsmanship in the work in addition to being one of the most extreme Continental Supersports in the world.

On the outside, it’s hard to not notice the custom widened body which features a set of Savini Forged SV-31c Xtreme Concave wheels on all four corners. Clearly along with the widebody conversion came a custom body kit featuring carbon fiber accents that goes well with the carbon fiber barrels on the Savini wheels. The entire exterior transformation was completed with a custom paint job.

The interior also got some work done, though details weren’t really revealed. The vehicle was recently shot for this month’s DUB magazine and belongs to MLB pitcher Carlos Silva.

In case owners of the Bentley Continental Supersports convertible feel that they blend in too much, there’s a new appearance package available that transforms their cars into looking remarkably like a Porsche 911 GT3.

Who would tart up their expensive British luxury car to look like a mere Porsche? Hey, there’s a market for that: the ISR Mulliner package attempts to mimic the sticker-festooned appearance of the Ice Speed Record Bentley. Inside, carbon fiber blankets the dashboard and center console with a matching red weave, and diamond-quilted Alcantara add to increasing the value of the appearance package.

The contrasting red wheels do look snazzy, especially in white, but now that Porsche is being slowly brought into the Volkswagen mothership…consider it an homage, if anything.

As if the standard Bentley Continental GT Speed wasn’t enough, Bentley went ahead and put out the Continental Supersports, boasting 630-hp in a luxurious coupe. If you ever get the opportunity to place yourself in the driver seat of a Continental Supersports, take advantage of it. The car is truly a whole different experience than any other luxury sports coupe out there. But we digress, apparently there are people out there that find 630-hp lacking in the performance department and thankfully Anderson Germany is here to save their day.

After a quick ECU reflash, installation of a sport exhaust system and air filters, your Bentley Continental Supersports puts out 695-hp, a 65-hp gain. And if the stock Supersports styling is just too mundane for you, Anderson Germany also outfits the aesthetics with a limited edition body kit (300 will be produced). The kit includes a new front, rear, side skirts and rear spoiler. Of course the kit also fits your standard Bentley Continental models from GT to GT Convertible to GT Speed.

The wheels are a little plain for our taste, but they are 22-inch 3-piece wheels in a 22×10 setup, wrapped with 285/30/22 rubber. Lastly, no Anderson Germany vehicle is complete without interior upgrades, and this Supersports features carbon fiber accents and a mixture of Alcantara with black leather with color-matched stitching.
