Surprise, surprise! The Crewe headquartered Bentley Motors have caught everyone off-guard with its an absolutely new EXP 10 Speed 6 concept unveiled at this year’s Geneva Motor Show. To put it bluntly, more of a shocker than a surprise, the EXP 10 Speed 6 coupe concept might just be the smallest Bentley on offer in the very exciting future to come and will be positioned as the younger sibling to the legendary Continental coupe.
On the outset, calling the Bentley EXP 10 Speed 6 (that’s a mouthful to say) a concept is more of an understatement. We would have taken their word for it if they would’ve called the car production ready upon unveil. From no angle has Bentley gone outlandish with the concept’s styling, which looks overwhelmingly impossible to achieve. This in turn translates into an excellent feature since we’ll be seeing more of the concept lines being carried over to the production model; thereby confirming our theory that the EXP 10 Speed 6 will be a drop dead gorgeous coupe turning more heads than Cheryl Cole on her best day.
Showcased in the spell bounding British green livery, the new Bentley concept is as uber luxurious as it gets within the confines of good looks and relatively smaller dimensions. The 3D geometry grille in front looks spectacular with the ‘6’ written on it while the headlights are a spectacle in their own might. Move past the front fascia to the sides, and you are greeted with an extravagantly long hood; while comparisons with the larger Continental GT are quite evident. The rear features a wide appearance with slender LED tail lights standing out marvelously. Another interesting fact about the EXP 10 Speed 6 is the multiple air vents strategically located around the vehicle itself.
While the exteriors are a point of envy for your neighbor, you will be spending a lot of time on the inside… and the EXP 10 Speed 6 gets one of the most gorgeous interiors in today’s time. The attention to detail is simply mind blowing with the quilted leather, milled gear selector, curved central display unit, and a host of other changes as well. For most part, the beautiful interiors will be making that lasting impression as it has always been with Bentley.
There is no word yet on the powertrain that will go under that long hood of the concept, but going by Bentley’s words in the past, the company will not go the downsizing route and put anything lesser than eight cylinders. There is also the possibility of a hybrid powertrain mated to the conventionally powered engine showing up on the production version that will be more driver-focused than ever.
