Bentley EXP 10 Speed 6 Ready To Be Given Green Light


Decadent, Quilted leather and Baller. These are some of the words thrown around when one describes the Bentley EXP 10 Speed 6 that took the world by storm at the 2015 Geneva Auto Show. The Bentley EXP 10 Speed 6 (which we will refer to from now on as the Bentley EXP)

The Bentley EXP 10 Speed 6 (which we will refer to from now on as the Bentley EXP) according to GT Spirit might finally receive the green light for production given the outcome of customer surveys and dealer clinics around the world taking place. And by the sound of things, customers are really digging this concept.

Details are scant on the Bentley EXP 10 Speed 6 but what we do know is pretty exciting. Made to compete with the likes of the Jaguar F-Type and Mercedes- AMG GT, the Bentley EXP is a two-door GT car made for gentleman.

Engine options and drivetrains have been thrown around, but for now we’re pretty sure that Bentley won’t throw anything less than eight cylinders under the hood. Expect to see a hybrid drivetrain as a possibility.

What matters most about the Bentley EXP is its exquisite styling. Much of the design language you see here will carry on to future Bentleys. Unlike Bentley’s before this one, the GT sports car is low to the ground, cheating wind at every corner and very British Green with just a hint of metallic in the paint.

Mum’s the word whether the model shown at Geneva will be the one used in production, but one look at the interior and it’s pretty clear to see this one is very close to the showroom floor.

It’s Leather, leather and more luxurious leather at all sides inside and it runs the entire length of the cabin. A waterfall styled center stack clearly delineates passenger from driver. And as far as driver’s space is concerned, it’s very driver focused. From some shots, it looks like even the foot pedals are wrapped in a grippable leather. It goes without saying that this interior was meant for long drives at high speeds.

There are still some major issues to be addressed. What chassis will the Bentley EXP use? What engine? And at what cost will all the interior luxury have on its performance in terms of added weight.

Bentley would be wise to take a look at the Lexus LFA as a case study. Although the V10 Japanese supercar was bonkers fast, it still retained that air of civility only found in a Lexus.

Needless to say, this modern day GT gentleman race car for the streets needs to be made and made soon.
