The Bentley Hunaudieres prototype was launched at the 1999 Geneva motorshow. The Hunaudieres, which was based on a modified Lamborghini Diablo VT chassis was powered by a W16 Volkswagen engine making 620 bhp driving all four wheels.

The Hunaudieres concept was intended to test the water to see how close to an all out sports car Bentley could feasibly create, without compromising the brand's identity.

The Hunaudieres was Bentley's first go at a modern sports car
The awkward 'Hunaudieres' name pays homage to the famous straight on the Le Mans Circuit. It was here that the legend of Bentley was born with five wins at the track in the 1920's. Sir Tim Birkin in his 4.5 litre 'Blower' Bentley, undertook a risky overtaking of Rudolf Carraciola's Mercedes SSK at 125mph with one wheel on the grass down the Hunaudières straight.
