Bentley EXP 10 Speed 6 Is the Coupe We Need After the Bentayga

Bentley's first-ever SUV just made its debut ahead of the Frankfurt Motor Show. It's not as ugly as the concept that previewed it, and we kind of see it as a necessary evil. Billionaires from across the word will want the fastest, most luxurious vehicle of its kind… ever.

However, most true Bentley fans want the company to build something altogether different, us included. We are referring to the EXP 10 Speed 6 concept car.

Just look at it in the video below and tell us it isn't the most beautiful, classical creation you've ever seen. The green paint might remind you of old Blowers, but everything else is thoroughly 21st century.

While everybody hated the headlights of the EXP 9 F concept, the ones we see in this video put a refreshingly modern twist on the classic round shape by making it swept back and three-dimensional.

Speaking of the video, we have to mention that it was taken at the 2015 Quail Motorsports Gathering in Carmel Valley, California during Monterey Car Week 2015. There are tens of similar shots with this car from the Geneva Motor Show, where it made its debut. However, we like seeing it in the sun more.
What is the EXP 10 Speed 6 Concept?
That's a very good question. Various reports suggest it has been approved for mass production and will be ready by the end of the decade. As a strict two-seater, this car will sit below the Continental range, cheaper and lighter than the GT coupe.

Could we be looking at a rival for the Porsche 911? And if that's the case, what will power it? Porsche is helping Bentley with the development of the next models, giving them a next-gen platform and AWD system. In return, the Brits might help with the development of a better V8.

So the EXP 10 could pack as much power as the AMG GT in a sexy package with a bespoke interior. What's not to like about that?
