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”.
DMC Bentley Bentayga
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 aluminum 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 aluminum wheels are available in 22-24” and truly lift the scale of appearance. It has been commonly criticized 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 of course be extended to the whole passenger compartment.
Getting more power from an engine is worthwhile only when you know where it needs to go. And how quickly and effectively. The latest Panamera models are therefore equipped with a newly developed 8-speed Porsche Doppelkupplung (PDK), which translates the tremendous drive force of the respective engine into the acceleration expected of a sports car.
Combined fuel consumption in accordance with EU 6: Panamera Turbo: 9,4 – 9,3 l/100 km, CO2 emissions: 214 – 212 g/km;
The design language of the new Panamera creates a link to the Porsche 911 by its even more dynamic flyline and specific design elements of the sports car icon. “An observer will immediately recognise the coupé-like roof line, but now it is much ‘faster’, even more dynamic and now includes a new side window look that emphasises the coupé-like side view even more,” said Michael Mauer, Head of Style Porsche AG, who explained the design targets that were set for the new model: “The new Panamera can be made out at first glance as a Panamera, but also as the new Panamera. Its strengths have been reinforced, its weaknesses eradicated and above all its character preserved.”

The new twin-turbo engines of the Panamera are more powerful, and thanks to the new eight-speed dual-clutch transmission (PDK II) they are up to 16 per cent more fuel-efficient. At the beginning of November, the Panamera will launch on the market with three different engines and exclusively with all-wheel drive: as the Panamera Turbo with 404 kW / 550 hp (combined fuel consumption 9.4 – 9.3 l/100 km; CO2emissions 214 – 212 g/km), the Panamera 4S with 324 kW / 440 hp (combined fuel consumption 8.2 – 8.1 l/100 km; CO2 emissions 186 – 184 g/km) and the Panamera 4S Diesel with 310 kW / 422 hp (combined fuel consumption 6.8 – 6.7 l/100 km; CO2emissions 178 – 176 g/km).
For an even larger spread between comfort and sportiness, the Panamera now has such features as a new three-chamber air suspension, rear axle steering and the new electronic 4D Chassis Control chassis management system. Many new assistance systems also enhance ride comfort as well as safety.
In the new Panamera, Porsche is also introducing a future-oriented display and control concept. The new Porsche Advanced Cockpit with its smartphone-like user interfaces and configurable LED screens impresses with its intuitive functionality. In addition, the new Porsche Communication Management (PCM 4.1) offers an entirely new range of connectivity by its intelligent digital functions and online services. In the new Panamera, which customers can order now, Porsche Connect is being introduced in all models. It extends existing vehicle functions by adding digital services and apps such as those used for remote control of certain vehicle functions by smartphone – and others to more efficiently use one’s time during the drive.
With Watermopilasgrado commercial, Mitsubshi is promoting its L200 Triton Sport 4×4 in Brazil. The tagline is “most badass truck in history.”
The ad, by Africa, is titled “Watermopylaegrad,” the idea being that the battle seen here eclipses Waterloo, Thermopylae and Stalingrad. Imagine “Mad Max” meets ‘Lord of the Rings” as fur-clad Viking types, leather-masked road warriors, cowboys, bow-wielding tribesman, army choppers and tanks all do their best to take down the truck. It can’t be beaten. Directed by Vellas, from Saigon, it’s great fun and will definitely get the “badass” message across. read more on creativity-online.com
