It's a sportier Bentley than we've seen in the past, but still offering plenty of familiar cues, like those imposing rear fenders.

The front grille is also typically Bentley.

The headlights, however, taper nicely around the edges.

The front is long and low and very, very shapely.

Bentley hasn't said what's under that hood, except that the numerous copper highlights seen throughout point to some sort of hybrid powertrain.

The headlights are works of art.

Taking a step inside, the interior is absolutely lovely.

It's also a fair bit more engaging and cocooning than your average Bentley.

That chrome grille is 3D printed, believe it or not.
