It’s a spectacular looking thing, particularly inside where the Brabus-owned tuner has gone for an “all or nothing” approach. That’s not to say the exterior is underwhelming, though.
Startech has fitted the big British GT with an aero kit that uses optional naked carbon components, 22-inch forged wheels, and a suspension lowering kit. All these upgrades combined result in a meaner appearance without taking the civilized Conti GT into vulgar territory.
The front end gains a new fascia that’s said to optimize the flow of cooling air to the intercooler and the front brakes. At the same time, it helps reduce front-axle lift at high speeds, further optimizing stability. Last but not least, the new front bumper gives the coupe a more racing-like look thanks to the wing shaped like on a Formula 1 car.
Viewed from the side, the Startech-tuned Continental GT stands out thanks to the naked carbon mirror caps and gloss black trim, as well as the 22-inch Monostar M alloys shod with 275/35 ZR 22 Pirelli P Zero high-performance tires at the front and 315/30 ZR 22 rubber at the rear. The 25mm (0.98in) lower ride height also contributes to a more purposeful stance.
At the rear, the center of attention is the bumper that features a carbon diffuser with five fins and a central LED light module that serves both as a rear fog lamp and as a backup light. A naked-carbon spoiler lip rounds off the exterior modifications.
And so we’ve reached the car’s most spectacular part, the interior. The Geneva show car rocks a two-tone cabin combining grey and brown leather — including in the footwells where the Conti GT features stitched quilted leather matching the square upholstery pattern of the seats. Even the floor mats sport the identical design, adding brown leather borders.
Equally striking is the carbon fiber trim with large checkered flag structure and high-gloss surface sealant that replaces the standard car’s noble-wood trim.
