Bentley SUV Very Close to Getting Green Light for Production
They tried the water with the EXP 9F concept, but it received mixed reviews, when it was first revealed at the 2012 Geneva Motor Show. Bentley admitted that they were not planning on showing the final styling direction for the vehicle, and it was made purely to see how people would react to seeing it.
The Bentley SUV, which will share its platform with some other similar Volkswagen group offering, is now closer than ever to getting the green light, according to europe.autonews.com. The information comes from the company CEO, Wolfgang Schreiber, who answered a few question at the Detroit Motor Show.
Regarding what the SUV will be like, he said: "Bentleys are luxury cars, but people like this effortless acceleration and torquey engines." It is expected that the future SUV would get a twin-turbocharged V8, as well as a twin-turbo W12 as an option, just like on the Continental models.
