How Much Red Is Too Much? Meet Strasse’s Custom Bentley Continental GT

Bentley customers usually go for somber colors, like black or silver, but the owner of a Continental GT decided to go for red.

Presented by Strasse, it is equipped with one of their high-end wheel sets, dubbed the SV1 Deep Concave FS. They measure 10×22-inch on the front axle and 11.5×22-inch on the rear, feature a 10-spoke design and sport a glossy black and red finish.

The wheels can be fitted to a different number of cars, and Strasse has already equipped the McLaren 650S and 720S, Audi R8 V10 Spyder and Lamborghini Huracan. They are available in different diameters and widths, from 18 to 24 inches and from 4.5 to 13+ inches respectively, and can be ordered in different color combos. Pricing starts at $7,500 for a complete set, not counting the tires, of course.
Save for the vibrant color and the two-tone aftermarket wheels with custom center caps, this Continental GT is stock. Thus, its twin-turbocharged 6.0-liter W12 produces 626 HP (635 PS / 467 kW) and 664 lb-ft (900 Nm) of torque, and is mated to an eight-speed dual-clutch automatic from ZF and all-wheel drive. All this is enough to propel it from 0-60 mph (0-96 km/h) in 3.6 seconds and on to a 207 mph (333 km/h) top speed.
Customers can also get the Continental GT with a twin-turbo 4.0-liter V8, which kicks out 542 HP (550 PS / 404 kW) and 568 lb-ft (770 Nm). It is 0.3 seconds slower to 60 mph (96 km/h) than its W12-powered sibling, and will top out at 198 mph (319 km/h).
