And no, we’re not talking about the 2013 or 2014 edition of the Swiss venue, but the one that’s less than a month away. We’ve heard reports of hybrid technology, W12 and the new twin-turbo 4.0-liter V8 from Audi, but it all seemed so vague that we though the Bentley SUV was just an idea.
However, AutoWeek has head from insiders that VW Group is “scrambling” to get it ready for its day under the spotlight. That might seem strange at first, but they have all the technological might in the world to get it ready this fast. We could actually be looking at a concept version, since that’s what VW execs like to use in order to gouge market interest.

Certainly, the description of a vehicle with the wheelbase of an Audi Q7, a W12 powertrain and “legitimate off-road capability” fits very well with the idea of a concept that borrows technologies from existing vehicle.

Only if the reaction is positive will Bentley’s top brass approve it for production. That’s the way of the market survey and the business case study after all!

Mihnea's favorite cars have already been built, the so-called modern classics from the '80s and '90s. He also loves local car culture from all over the world, so don't be surprised to see him getting excited about weird Japanese imports, low-rider VWs out of Germany, replicas from Russia or LS swaps down in Florida.
