Bentley EXP 10 Speed 6 brings new curves to a classic brand
Welcome to the show floor of the 2015 Geneva Motor Show and welcome to the Bentley EXP 10 Speed 6, a long name for what is, in my opinion, the most lovely car here on the show floor.
It's a different car then we've seen from Bentley of late, a small.
Two seater coupe with a much more sporting intent that the continental.
It's a sports car but there's still plenty of luxury to be found inside and out.
Styling cues are very familiar Bentley in many ways, those big square massive fenders in the rear.
But the front end tapers down quite a bit more, and these beautiful inset headlights are works of art themselves.
Up front a very traditional Bentley grill.
But this one's actually 3D printed out of metal.
Using a lot more high detail than found on the grill on the Continental.
Now inside you've got a luxurious leather interior of course.
Situated between the seats though is a massive 12 inch touch screen not unlike that found on Tesla.
It's taken inspiration from consumer tablets.
There's also an LCD multi function display behind the steering wheel, but there's still an analog tachometer there to give you a feel of the old mixed with the new.
And behind the seats [UNKNOWN] luggage of course.
Now you might find and notice throughout the car there are a lot of copper highlights and that's supposed to hint at a battery pack situated somewhere within the car.
Bentley unfortunately is not saying very much about what is powering the car but given the name Speed 6 we're expecting some sort of a six cylinder engine.
Marketing back perhaps its original speed six back in the 1920s and 30s which had a massive six and half liter in-line six engine, presumably something a little bit smaller under here, maybe even a hybrid.
Nobody knows, and Bentley's also not saying whether this will actually see production, but they say if customer reaction's good enough, they might just see fit to make it so.
Based on the reaction that we're seeing, I think that might be a good idea.
Again, this is the Bentley EXP10 speed 6 in the show floor of the Jim Moran Motor Show.
