The future of British luxury automaker Bentley is previewed in the EXP 10 Speed 6, a two-seater sports car making its debut at the Geneva Motor Show this week. Billing the car as a potential “future model line,” Bentley envisions potentially positioning this two-seater beside its popular Continental GT.
The intent of the concept is to experiment with “styling,” Bentley said in a news release, which skimmed on details about other specifications for a potential production vehicle in this class.
It’s the styling cues and British craftmanship that are in play, from the aircraft-inspired aerodynamic shapes, with copper used throughout to add detail to 3D metal printing technology in the grille mesh, exhausts and door handles.
Bentley Motors chairman and chief executive Wolfgang Durheimer quotes indicate confidence that the the EXP 10 Speed 6 will become “the new pinnacle” in its two-seater sports car market segment – with a nod toward the “trademark modern Bentley luxury and effortlesssness.”
The style details include a mix of traditional materials and contemporary design – for example, the doors sport “3D quilting, milled directly to solid straight-grain cherry wood” and “each resulting diamond is finished with a copper centre.”
The rear space is divided into two compartments to accommodate a four-piece luggage set. The trim is in Poltrona Frau leather made by master craftsmen at Bentley.
