Bentley's New Supercar Concept Is Absolutely Breathtaking (Photos)
If you've ever had a chance to drive a Bentley, you know one thing: It feels and sounds like you're driving a boat.
There's just something aquatic about the way the engine flutters, and the Continental GT's bulbous shape doesn't help. Fortunately, luxury automakers like Bentley are always looking to refine their products with time.
That's precisely why I couldn't be any more excited about coming across Bentley's latest supercar concept.
Behold, the Bentley EXP 10 Speed 6 Concept: a sleek, sharp and updated take on Bentley's craftsmanship.
Now, keep in mind, Bentley specializes in producing luxury vehicles that you typically hire a driver for.
But you should also keep in mind the English automaker's fierce competitiveness, which is exactly why it needs a supercar that rivals the machines over at Ferrari, Lamborghini and Aston Martin.
That's when this breathtaking concept comes into play.
The EXP 10 Speed 6 features both the aerodynamics of a sleek aircraft as well as the luxury you'd find in a Mulsanne and the high-tech features you'd find in a Tesla. There are also rumors that this could be a hybrid.
There's really nothing like it -- and again, this is just a concept.
Most importantly, the EXP's design is impossible not to fall in love with at first sight.
In a description posted on Bentley's website, Sang Yup Lee, Bentley's Head of Advanced Design, revealed that when it comes to a sports car, attraction has to be instantaneous:
When I judge a sports car, I have a simple logic. Unless you fall in love with it at first sight, the car is a failure.
According to the Los Angeles Times, the EXP 10 could start at $177,000, but no confirmations have been made.
As of right now, Bentley has not confirmed any plans to take this into full production stages but with the Bentley Bentayga SUV nearing completion, we could be seeing more of the EXP 10 Speed 6 sooner than we initially thought.
