Imagine buying a brand new Bentley Continental GTC only to discover that the person down the road has one as well, and in the exact same color as yours.

If you’re fortunate enough to be ‘suffering’ from this or a similar dilemma, there are a handful of specialist companies around the globe whose sole aim is to create personalized vehicles that stand out from the crowd.

One of these companies is British tuner Imperium, an expert in the personalization of Bentley vehicles.

Imperium has now launched a new upgrade program for the latest version of the Bentley Continental GTC drop-top, which made its official world debut last September at the 2011 Frankfurt Auto Show.

Labeled the Audentia, the new upgrade program comes with a bespoke range of accessories and components including a redesigned front bumper and grille, new air vents and visually lowering side sills. A custom rear apron design features a new subtle boot lip spoiler, as well as an integrated rear diffuser and newly designed sports exhaust tips.

All the bodywork components are expertly designed and manufactured using the finest engineering techniques, processes and principles. Each individual limited edition package is manufactured to order and is composed of lightweight carbon fiber.

The pieces add a healthy touch of aggression to the already rakish styling of the Continental GTC. And importantly, many of the pieces are both aerodynamically functional as well as aesthetically pleasing.

The Audentia upgrade program is available now so if you’re hoping to have it ready for summer it’s best to act fast. Becoming one of Imperium’s esteemed clients is no easy task as the company only takes on a limited number of projects each year.
