Luxury refiner DMC knows a thing or two about going overboard on some of its projects. Not that it’s a bad thing because anytime they have a program to unveil, we all stand up and take notice.
It’s latest creation definitely lives up to that billing, unveiling the DMC Bentley Bentayga. The tuner called this package “Gigante”, which hints to what we can expect, since that’s italian for Giant!
Bentley’s SUV has already been celebrated by press worldwide, but what DMC’s German engineers came up with here is a far more powerful and dare we say, more sinister looking Bentayga than the one we’re accustomed to seeing.
The matte-black finish on the body’s exterior already speaks to us the way matte finishes always do. But the new set of 22-inch, diamond-forged, matte-black alloys wrapped in 285/25R22 tires really kill it in our view.
The original whips on Bentley’s SUV are a tragedy as it seems commonly agreed, the DMC set however make the car look sick as hell, finally.
One factor that pushes the aggressive style is not only that the wheels are extremely deep concave, but they are also engraved with a number of beautiful details.
On the performance front, DMC installed a new titanium exhaust system, a new sports air filter, and a remapped ECU, which allows the luxury SUV’s 6.0-liter Power up to 691bhp from 600bhp (torque is up by 111lb ft to 774lb ft). Top speed is not much different with an additional 6mph on the clock.
A set of new suspensions add to the overall aggressive look and finish a long list of incredible upgrades. We think it’s enough to justify DMC’s standing as one of the world’s most aggressive aftermarket tuners, but have a feeling that they are coming up with a body kit as well in the near future (hint).
DMC is prod to announce that it became the Asia agent for Italian made exhaust company ILYX. The product has a beautiful origin, it’s made in the wonderful city of Maranello in Italy.
It has a brutal sound (see the link for videos below), but also comes with a special factor: The exhaust can be ordered with a layer of steel that looks like carbon fiber. But in contrast to real carbon, which changes colour in strong heat, the steel maintains its integrity.
ILYX is very strong in Ferrari: It has stainless steel exhausts for new models (488 GT) and also for old applications (Testarossa, etc.). The company also covers Lamborghini, Maserati, Porsche and other super cars.
The ILYX business mission is enclosed in 4 words: reliability, sound, performance, emotions:
Every day Ilyx department designs, improves and innovates products which are then destined to competent and demanding customers. For this reason, each component is first designed, developped on paper, and then tested on track before being placed on the market. This guarantee to the customers those emotions that arise from the “sound” that any Ilyx equipped vehicle transmits.
Ilyx employs specialized personnel and collaborators. As a tailoring of the highest level, Ilyx sews to every car the product that best suits the customer, both in sound and finishes.
You just have to choose …. and this differs Ilyx from the “standard” rivarly.
Since its foundation, the DMC brand became a reference for luxury refinement. One of DMC’s particular passion has been for bulls from St’Agata: Their work on the Diablo, Murcielago, Gallardo, Aventador and Huracan have created not only the company’s history, but also marked its mission to Make Good Things Better.
Just when you thought it doesn’t get much better, DMC comes up with some new refinements. Today we’d like to present you one of their LP610 conversions that stands particularly out because of the design pattern that was added as a wrap. It does more than just compliment the aero kit, it makes the car look truly brutal. Decide for yourself:
One of the character giving elements of this kit is surely the wing spoiler. The leading wing for LP610, that can be adjusted to 3 angle settings: Choose City Cruising, GT Track day or Fun Mode. Each one was individually wind tunnel and CFD tested. The spoiler comes with a 10 page PDF document full of physical data, technical specs and wind flow analysis.
If that would not be enough, the wing also comes with a base deck under it, which is a stronger version of the original part that each LP610 has. This way, owners don’t need to drill holes, and the product install can be done in under 30 minutes. It has been tested and certified by the German TUV, assuring road safety and quality.
The side skirts that add downforce, the rear diffuser that supports road stability are all taken from Stage1 as well, but it’s the front lip that really makes this new package stand out. Made from the same dry carbon fiber as all other components, DMC now has gone back to the drawing board: They came up with a stunning, full front lip spoiler with added Side Flaps that remind many of us of the aggressive LP720 Anniversario look.
The forged wheels come in a 20″/21″ setup, and are the widest sets in the market so far. The front has got a technical set up of 20×8,5J wile the rear then showcases specs of 21x12J. Enthusiasts may foresee that DMC will be using a 245/30r20 / 325/25r21 tyre combination but a softer P-Zero application is possible as well.
As usual, clients can choose from an unlimited array of interior options, DMC will customise the LP610 with rare leathers (Ostrich, Stingray) and Carbon Fiber, matching any of the exclusive clientele’s desires. The engine optimisation program (LP630) fit well to the new package as well, making it overall an exciting re-appearance for 2015.
DMC’s mission is Making Good Things Better. While the company’s German heritage sparked the initial success, it soon developed its major hotspot in Hong Kong and the Middle East. Recently DMC was accepted as exhibitor of the prestigious Geneva Auto Salon, joining the top-elite of brands in the world.
The company was started in 2009 in Germany, where business was slow at first. It was only after the team expanded to Hong Kong, in 2010, when business really sky rocketeered. The new wealth in Asian countries sparked the success which soon would swap over to the Middle East as well.
The team has strong passion for designing and manufacturing products that enhance super-cars. Their work is often cited to be a piece of art, defined by the love of materials like carbon fiber and special leathers. Globally they are based in Germany, Hong Kong and Saudi Arabia.
Recent mile stones, besides joining Geneva exhibition, also include German TUV certification, and CFD & Windtunnel compatibility on its aerodynamic products.
