The all-new Bentley EXP 10 Speed 6 is company’s sign that there will be a more focused two-seat sports and visitors from the 2015 Geneva Motor Show will be thrilled to see it. According to Wolfgang Durheimer, the concept is one vision for Bentley’s future and has the potential to be the pinnacle luxury two-seat sports car.
When it comes to design, the EXP 10 Speed 6 Concept is absolutely impressive and shows muscular and athletic surfaces inspired by aerodynamic shapes of aircraft fuselages and wings. The front end is dominated by the iconic Bentley matrix grille as well as by the four-round headlamps and the long bonnet.
The glass of the headlamps was inspired by the company’s renowned quilted leather and shows a three dimensional texture. At the rear, there are stylish oval LED taillights as well as impressive tailpipes.
The exterior design is highlighted by the metallic version o the British Racing Green. The interior shows the most performance-oriented luxury cabin, which includes quilted sports seats divided by a narrow centre console that houses driver controls as well as an intuitive 12-inch touch screen. Bentley says that the centre console integrates digital information with tactile controls via a curved touch screen.
Moreover, there is a no-symmetrical gear knob finished in aluminum, copper and cherry wood and featuring the floating “B” button. The traditional instrument cluster also seen an improvement and features a mechanical rev counter as well as a digital display.
The rear interior is divided into two compartments able to house a four-piece luggage set. What’s even more interesting is that the concept is powered by a hybrid powertrain but unfortunately, Bentley didn’t reveal any details. Still, we expect to see a twin-turbo V8 petrol engine that will define a new segment benchmark.
Although we don’t know if the concept car you see in the photos will actually be produced, we do know that Bentley used it in order to showcase new production techniques such as 3D metal printing. Bentley used the 3D metal printing in areas such as the grille mesh, exhaust, door handles but also the side vents.
