Bentley just revealed the stunning EXP 10 SPEED 6 concept at the 2015 Geneva auto show. The Bentley EXP 10 SPEED 6 concept shows “the future direction of luxury and performance,” according to the British automaker.

Research

While the Bentley EXP 10 SPEED 6 concept features classic Bentley styling elements, the taut surfaces and streamlined body are said to be influenced by aircraft. The automaker’s iconic front grille and quad round headlamps have been reinterpreted. Subtle copper elements accent the metallic British Racing Green exterior paint. The concept features classic proportions with short overhangs, a long hood, fastback roof, short deck, and wide rear stance. Bentley used the latest 3D metal printing to create the grille mesh, exhausts, door handles, and side vents.

Inside, a curved vertical 12-inch touchscreen dominates the center stack that flows into a full-length center console. Copper, aluminum and steel accent the interior, including the vehicle controls, to create a two-metal 3D texture. Additionally, the door panels feature 3D quilting, milled into a solid straight-grain cherry wood. A combination of digital and mechanical gauges displays vehicle information. A custom-fit four-piece luggage set fits in the rear cargo area. The luggage is made from high-end Poltrona Frau leather.

No powertrain details were revealed, though Bentley hinted that the advanced new powertrain would be a hybrid with performance goals, which include top speed, "set to challenge competitors and define a new segment benchmark.” Bentley hasn't announced production plans yet, but does say the EXP 10 Speed 6 could be a model line in the future, offered alongside the Continental GT.

"This is not just a new sports car concept -- but the potential Bentley sports car -- a bold vision for a brand with a bold future," Bentley Chief Wolfgang Dürheimer said in a release.
