One of the more stunning reveals at this year’s Geneva Auto show is the Bentley EXP 10 Speed 6 Concept Coupe. The exterior of the vehicle is most certainly Bentley. Large ovular headlamps that are outlined with seamless LED halos flank the winged Bentley nose ornament that hearkens back to generations of Bentley’s before.
An all-wire mesh grill is home to a large ghosted number ‘6’ that is offset to the passenger side of the grill, and it is most definitely one of the more interesting design cues of this Bentley.
There is one thing, however, that truly sets this Bentley apart from its predecessors: its compact size.
A trip around the rear of the coupe sees the ovular theme continue with seamless LED taillights whose shape and size are carried through into the exhaust outlets. The rear of the vehicle is a cross between a Jaguar F-type and Aston Martin Vantage, giving the vehicle that fastback side profile.
The aptly named The Bentley EXP 10 Speed 6 Concept is much more compact than any production vehicle that Bentley has ever built, and although this vehicle is not slated for production, Bentley did reveal that this concept is representative of a “potential future model line.” Unlike many other concept vehicles, this one actually looks as if it could be ready for production tomorrow.
There are not any radical exterior modifications that would make this vehicle unfit for the streets, and the leather-lined interior exudes functional luxury throughout. It features an elongated touch screen just above the shifter that controls the vehicles major functions, and Bentley engineers did a tasteful job integrating an analog tachometer amidst an otherwise digital gauge cluster.
As for the engine, Bentley did not comment on what power plant powers this luxo-coupe, but from the name “Speed 6” and Bentley’s history with referring to cylinder count in its previous vehicles, we can assume that there is a 6 cylinder under the hood with more than enough grunt to ensure that it looks as good moving down the road as it does sitting still at Geneva.
