Buying an exotic luxury car can be an exciting process. You're not likely to run into other examples of your high-end machine on the street on a daily basis. Still, other examples do exist, and there will come a day when your rare ride meets its equal. Outfits exist to make sure that doesn't happen, one of which has taken a customer's Bentley Continental GT and transformed it into a bespoke one-of-one super coupe.

The company is called Imperium, and it's turned up the exclusivity knob on this particular Bentley. Carbon fiber body panels have been shaped to replace the old metal ones, and new subtly aggressive features are achieved. A set of forged one-off wheels complete the look, resulting in the handsome Imperium Continental GT seen here.

Imperium doesn't list a price to achieve this look. However, it states that only a few cars are completed each year, and every one is built to the exacting standards of the specific client, so you can bet it ain't cheap.

Exclusive luxury vehicle personalisation specialists IMPERIUM have revealed their new one-off bespoke Bentley Continental GT. Commissioned at the request of a successful well known UK entrepreneur the IMPERIUM design engineers have created something truly unique and tailored to the exact specifications of the individual client.

IMPERIUM vehicle commissions are unique bespoke one-off creations exclusively designed, developed and manufactured from scratch for each individual client. The IMPERIUM designers initially present a series of bodywork design concepts which are developed and refined with constant feedback from the client to create their perfect final production design.

The new IMPERIUM Bentley Continental GT conversion features uniquely designed front and rear apron upgrades, aggressive carbon exposed side skirts, subtle boot lip spoiler and rear carbon fibre diffuser. All new bespoke designed bodywork components are manufactured in the UK to the highest possible standards from ultra light prepreg autoclave carbon fibre to create a perfect surface finish and factory fit to the vehicle.

Further enhancing the exclusivity of the new IMPERIUM Bentley Continental GT, the vehicle will be equipped with bespoke one-off designed and manufactured ultra light fully forged alloy wheels. Tailored to the exact specifications of the client our designers create all our bespoke wheels from scratch allowing the client to specify their own stunning unique wheel design, colour and finish.

The IMPERIUM technical engineers maximise overall vehicle performance using an optimised braking system, lowered sport suspension and ECU upgrade. To compliment the enhanced performance the Bentley is fitted with the unique IMPERIUM sport exhaust system individually tailored to the exact level of exhaust noise and depth of sound desired by the client.

Finally the new IMPERIUM bespoke Bentley Continental GT is treated to a traditionally crafted interior refinement package using the client's individual choice of specially hand selected luxurious leathers, tailor made carbon fibre, refined wood trim, ultra suede or classic black piano finishes. To complete the interior package the vehicle is fitted with a beautiful individually built and designed ergonomic sports steering wheel.

      Looks like a photoshop hackjob. Any photos of a real one?

      Oooooooooo! Shiny! Too bad it is just on the heels of the NEW generation Continental's announcement.

      More like a Photoshop menace. Please stop posting these stories Autoblog. You're better than this.

      What are you guys rambling about...most people who buy these cars live in places where other people drive ridiculously expensive cars as well. There are neighborhoods where all you see are over the top exotics.

        Exactly. They want to one up their neighbors with flashier and rarer cars.

      Maroon menace? I was thinking more along the lines of maroon blasphemy.
