July 13, 2006

A new, special edition Bentley uses Dunlop SP Sport Maxx ultra-high performance tires.

The Bentley Continental GT modified by German company Motoren Technik Mayer GmbH comes with a 205-mph performance kit, say Goodyear Tire & Rubber Co. officials.

"A second kit delivers 650 hp, propelling the 2.5-ton sports car from zero to 100 mph in 4.8 seconds."

The Dunlop tires being used are size 285/30ZR21 XL, according to Goodyear.
