Japanese tuning company ASI has a record of very flashy and impressive tuning programs for Bentleys. We saw their versions of the GT Speed and the Continental GTC and now it’s the Continental GT’s turn to meet the ASI engineers and designers. And we really don’t know what to write about first, the ‘Pimp my ride’ style body kit or the 800 hp engine.
The TETSU GTR (that’s what they call it) will be on display at this year’s SEMA and it was designed by artist Tetsuei Nakamura, who also worked on luxury hotels, for example. The exterior has received an ultra wide body kit finished in two-tone carbon fiber and Fujiyama matte white color, 22 inch black forged wheels and LED lights, while the interior fetures car seats and floor mats fashioned in the Nishijin weaving legacy. Like we said, the engine now delivers 800 hp, thanks to the enlarged turbo turbines, ECU upgrade, new exhaust system and improved cooling methods.
To be honest, there’s not much we can say about the car, we’re kinda speachless, so we’re gonna let the pictures do the talking.
