Bentley Motors with the unveiling of the EXP 10 Speed 6 actually marks a venture into a new realm, a new future of luxury and performance and it’s the 2015 International Geneva Motor Show where the automaker decided to show off it’s new concept. We must understand that the British company sees this concept first and foremost as a high performance two-seat sports car that has a really beautiful design.
The thing that Bentley has perfected is the highly skilled handcraft that gives the cars a spirit of their own made out of the finest materials. This whole is not complete without the advanced automotive technology that this brand deserves.
Bentley in it’s early age of success was well known as a company that has racing as it’s primary objective. Gradually this giant evolved into a manufacturer of luxury vehicles that enjoys a quiet international following among the 1%.
A Fine Example of a Luxury Sports Car
Well if you wanted to see a race car, you might just clicked on the right article. Honestly I’m not jumping into praises for this interesting crossbreed but the EXP 10 Speed 6 has both, luxury and racing in mind. You instantly recognize the iconic Bentley design but that’s the tricky part you actually see a racing car that has a luxury cocoon and this is where Bentley wins, every round.
What you will stuck your eyes to are the copper elements which even more bring out the exterior and interior features highlighting the performance potential that this hybrid carries under the hood. A new power train is responsible for an even better performance.
We might just see this as a future direction in which the company plans to venture, and of course the automaker doesn’t plan to do this with just one car. The Continental GT is also a tale by itself and is reflecting the beliefs of the company into another market sector. What’s most important is that the design and luxury style of the EXP 10 Speed 6 has the capability to influence an even greater expansion for the already big Bentley family. Lot of people don’t see the EXP 10 Speed 6 only as a new concept for a sports car. It is the stepping stone for what can be the future of an all new and impressive Bentley sports car, which is a brave vision for a brand that wants to make history and a bold future at the same time.
Contemporary Design, Unmistakably Bentley
With the exterior design Bentley wants us to know that the expression of the EXP 10 Speed 6 is pure muscle, and with the “athletic” design come fine aerodynamic shapes that resemble fuselages and wings just like you would see on an aircraft.
The exterior material is made with the help of the cutting-edge 3D metal printing technology. This has allowed Bentley to create everything with micro-scale detail precision from door handles, side vents, exhausts and the grille mesh.
The complete exterior package is fused together to represent a Bentley that’s a step in front of it’s competitors and in line for the next generation.
Bentley’s Fine Looking Luxury Cabin
For the automaker the inspiration for the interior comes from a continuous line that wraps itself around the cabin. It has two elegant sports seats that stand side by side of the narrow front console which has all of the necessities and driver controls accompanied with a 12″ touch screen. These features combine futuristic technology seamlessly with progressive Bentley craftsmanship.
As for the rivals in this market we would like to mention the new Mercedes-AMG GT and high-end versions of the iconic Porsche 911, as well as the production version of Maserati’s Alfieri sports car. An interesting fact that shouldn’t go unnoticed is that the platform behind the EXP 10 Speed 6 is likely to be the Volkswagen Group’s new MSB for front-engined, rear-wheel-drive cars, which was developed primarily by Porsche.
