Bentley is giving a glimpse into its future design direction with a new new concept unveiled on the eve of the 2015 Geneva Motor Show.
Called the EXP 10 Speed 6, the concept made its debut ahead of the show’s opening and according to the British automaker it is “showing the future direction of luxury and performance.” The concept takes a look at how Bentley envisions the future of a high-performance, two seater that draws from its history of motorsports.
No details have been released on the car’s powertrain but in a release Bentley does say it could use an advanced “performance hybrid” engine.
This hybrid theme is carried through into the interior with the interior elements made of a mixture of copper and steel fused together.
Bentley says this car could become a new sports car sitting along side the Continental, but the bigger focus for this project is the design direction that will influence future Bentley models. There’s a new interpretation of the company’s front grille and four-round headlights and the automaker calls the concept “a dynamic sculpture, creating harmony between sharp lines and flowing surfaces and using twisted surfaces to imply speed.”
“EXP 10 Speed 6 is one vision for Bentley’s future – a powerful, exquisite and individual concept,” said Wolfgang Dürheimer. “The showcar has the potential to be the new pinnacle luxury two-seat sports car. It offers thrilling, driver-oriented performance, complete with trademark modern Bentley luxury and effortlessness.”
