Article by Christian A., on January 19, 2017

Sometimes, being on top isn’t enough, especially for this Bentley Bentayga, which has been thoroughly tinkered by German tuning firm DMC. In terms of the fusion of power and luxury in the SUV world, the highly premium Bentley Bentayga could be considered as the authority.

Aside from its luxurious and technology laden bespoke interior and its hegemonic exterior, the Bentley Bentayga deserves to be called the most powerful SUV thanks to its potent core -- a monstrous 6.0-liter twin-turbocharged W12 engine.

This W12 engine can deliver up to 600 hp (447 kW) of output and up to 663 lb.-ft. of peak torque, allowing the Bentayga to sprint from a standstill to 60 mph in just 4.0 seconds and eventually reach a top speed of 187 mph (300 km/h). Massive, isn’t it? For DMC, however, it wasn’t enough. That is why this German tuner decided to place its stakes higher and create what it dubbed as the DMC Bentley Bentayga "Gigante."

As the DMC moniker infers, this tuned Gigante is a giant compared to the already powerful Bentley Bentayga. DMC was thorough in making sure the stock 6.0-liter twin-turbocharged W12 engine is tuned to deliver more output and torque.

By employing performance-related tweaks like a smart engine management system and a new high-performance exhaust system, DMC was able to significantly hike the power levels of this 6.0-liter twin-turbocharged W12 engine to 700 hp (521 kW) of max output and 778 lb.-ft. (1,055 Nm) of peak torque. Moreover, top speed has also been raised from 187 mph (300 km/h) to 193 mph (310 km/h).

Of course, the upgrades implemented weren’t limited to the power levels – although such immense modifications should be really noted and emphasized. Exterior and interior modifications especially for a bespoke luxury SUV like the Bentley Bentayga are not rare. However, a power upgrade on this level is worthy of note. As for the DMC Gigante, its overwhelming power is matched by its modified exterior.

On the front end, the DMC Gigante features a new carbon fiber hood, carbon fiber side skirts, and a carbon fiber trim on the rear. It rides on a new set of massive forged aluminum wheels available in sizes 22 inches, 23 inches and 24 inches. These carbon fiber component should make the Gigante lighter than a typical Bentayga.

Meanwhile, the interior of this DMC-tuned Bentley Bentayga Gigante comes with hand-stitched floor mats as well as a customized carbon fiber steering wheel with Italian leather accents. If these aren’t enough, DMC is willing to employ this treat to the whole interior at an extra charge. Of course, the Bentayga already offers an opulent interior that is fit for royalty (note: Queen Elizabeth II owns a plush Bentayga as one of her royal rides). It is laden with an array of entertainment and comfort systems like backseat screens and Wi-Fi (entertainment) as well as heating, cooling and massage functions on the seats (comfort).

Press Release

DMC Gigante Bentley Bentayga

Behold the mighty giant from Bentley. It’s new SUV has made a statement with its powerful appearance. But the best is yet to come, as DMC announces its take on the british luxury off roader today. Get ready to rumble with the DMC Bentayga “Gigante”:

To our surprise, the DMC package is more elegant than wild. The major conversion on the optical side seems to be concentrating on a new set of forged aluminium wheels and some carbon accents. So long, until you hear its sound and feel its new powertrain. But let’s review it step by step.

On the front we see a new carbon fiber hood, the sides wear some decent looking carbon fiber skirts, and the rear has got a carbon fiber trim. The parts seems to underline the original line rather than making too much noise. But the car certainly looks different, more unique, in a gentlemen type of way.

The forged aluminium wheels are available in 22-24” and truly lift the scale of appearance. It has been commonly criticised that the Bentayga’s OEM wheels were not the best creation that came from Bentley. DMC took this chance and designed a set of massive wheels that every Bentley Bentayga should wear IOHO.

To keep up with the new appearance, DMC did not forget to put their hands on the W12 engine. Starting with a new exhaust and a clever engine management.

The DMC Bentayga now gets a new performance upgrade to 702 PS, which translates to a new top speed of 312 KM/H. On paper that’s only 11 KM/h more, but what gives us the thrill is the new maximum torque of 1055 Nm. It literally pushed you onto the back seat when pushing your foot on full speed.

As for the interior, DMC currently offers a new customised carbon fiber steering wheel with accents of italian leathers, and a set of hand stitched floor mattes. On request of the exclusive clients this can ofcourse be extended to the whole passenger compartment.
