Positive Reviews For Svelte Bentley EXP 10 Speed 6
Bentley is in the midst of a world tour with its EXP 10 Speed 6 concept. Unveiled at the Geneva Motor Show last month, the concept subsequently appeared in New York and now in Shanghai, and will stop in the Middle East on its way back home to England. The purpose: to gauge reactions from potential customers. And so far it’s reportedly been pretty good.
Finished in a gorgeous, heavily metallic shade of British Racing Green, the EXP 10 Speed 6 is, as we said yesterday, a truly different take on what we’ve come to expect from Bentley. It’s low, featuring a classic long-hood, short-deck design that expands on the British luxury marque’s traditional styling features. The egg-crate grille and quad headlights give the Speed 6 a face that is at the same time new and familiar, while the wide rear haunches bleed over the rear wheels and add to the car’s svelte silhouette.
Bentley will certainly get rolling as soon as they get the green light from their parent company, Volkswagen.
Speaking with Autocar in Shanghai this week, Bentley CEO Wolfgang Dürheimer said most of the potential buyers who spoke to the company after seeing the concept have encouraged Crewe to build it. The only adjustments it’s been asked to make were to the front end. Those LED ring headlights look interesting, but would be unlikely to make production. And the grille would likely be more swept back than upright.
These features combine futuristic technology seamlessly with progressive Bentley craftsmanship.
