Bentley has revealed a two-seater concept sports model at the Geneva Motor Show today. The low-slung, muscular-looking model, called the EXP 10 Speed 6, is finished in British Racing Green and while it is a concept it’d be a surprise if it didn’t make production in some form or another.
There are no details about the engine, but expect it to use a six-cylinder unit, since it is called a Speed Six. Because this is a smaller, two-seat Bentley we imagine it will provide an alternative to cars like the Jaguar F-Type, so expect this to be the entry-level model from the Flying B if it goes on sale.
The cabin is finished with traditional Bentley style and materials, so there’s plenty of metal and quilted leather. There is also a 10-inch touchscreen infotainment system and a dashboard that features both traditional analogue locks and modern digital readouts.
Wolfgang Dürheimer, Chairman and Chief Executive of Bentley Motors, commented: “EXP 10 Speed 6 is one vision for Bentley’s future – a powerful, exquisite and individual concept. 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.
“It could be a future model line, alongside the Continental GT and redefining the pinnacle of another market sector, and the styling of the EXP 10 Speed 6 could influence the expansion of the Bentley family. 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.”
