EXP 10 Speed 6
The Bentley EXP 10 Speed 6 was a concept car designed to break
new territory for Bentley in terms of design, as well as provide a
preview of the company's ideas for the future. The last time Bentley
unveiled anything this exciting was back in 1999 with the Bentley
Unlike previous Bentley coupes, the EXP 10 Speed 6 is a strict
two-seater, there are no rear seats whatsoever. This means the
car is sportier in its dimensions and overall character than previous
vehicles like the Continental
However despite its massively updated style and overall design, the
car Bentley EXP 10 Speed 6 is immediately recognizable as belonging
to the British marque. Especially from the front where the rectangular
grille is flanked by the dual round(ish) headlights. From the side
the car's origins are a little harder to guess, but those sharply
chiseled rear arches give the game away.
The interior of the concept is just as stunning as the exterior.
There is an entire herd's worth of top-class leather hide in there.
Most of the upholstery is finished in a rich tan hue, while other
elements are covered in a complimentary black. The center console
features a long, thin touchscreen display set into a single piece
of aluminium which runs almost the complete length of the console.
The leather wrapped steering wheel is surprisingly devoid of buttons
- and looks all the better for it. The digital gauges behind feature
a combination of imitation analogue dials and a navigation screen.
As the Bentley EXP 10 Speed 6 is just a styling exercise for now,
the company has opted to keep the details of the drivetrain to themselves.
Saying only that copper trim highlights used inside and out hint at
the "performance hybrid potential of the concept's advanced
new powertrain". This being a Bentley there's a good chance that
the drivetrain will employ and AWD setup.
Bentley introduced the EXP 10 Speed 6 at the 2015 Geneva Motor Show.
A production version is expected to follow in the next couple of years
depending on potential
customer feedback collected by Bentley.
