If the Bentley EXP 10 Speed 6 does head to production, expect it to look different than the concept.
According to Bentley head Wolfgang Dürheimer, the British automaker is still compiling feedback from various auto shows from around the world to determine whether the EXP 10 Speed 6 will head to production. If it does, expect the feedback to alter the styling even if they are just little tweaks. Currently on display at the Shanghai Motor Show, the EXP 10 Speed 6 has also been shown at the 2015 Geneva Motor Show and New York Auto Show and will also visit the Middle East before returning to the UK.
In an interview with Autocar, Dürheimer said, “After the summer we will have a solid database from all major markets around the world, detailing how the car is perceived, how its styling connects or disconnects to our major target group and what price and volume potential is behind it. Then we can start to build up our business case for the car.” Initial impressions of the vehicle have been positive with Dürheimer noting that after Geneva, the message was simply “don’t change anything, just do it.”
But there will be changes to the Bentley EXP 10 Speed 6 styling, as the brand is currently considering making the front section look a little bit faster and making the grille not look as upright as the concept. The company will also revisit the design of the headlights with Dürheimer admitting that they “look a little bit awkward from different angles.”
