Production Bentley SUV Could be Called the “Falcon”

You know how every American fighter jet has a cool sounding name from some species of eagle or hawk? Automakers do it too sometimes: Datsun Bluebird, AMC Eaglet, Ford Falcon, Pontiac Firebird to name but a few. It looks like there will be a new one, though it won’t be a Corvette or SVT Viper in any way.

The new Bentley SUV will be called the Falcon,according to Automobile Mag. During the Geneva Motor Show presentation, the Bentley’s official talked about how rich people liked to own falcons, which might actually have been a hint to the EXP 9 F’s name.

When it does arrive, the new super-SUV will be powered by the same 4.0-liter twin-turbo V8 and W12 engines as the Continental GTC and GTC, and soon the Flying Spur as well. A plug-in hybrid is also in the works.

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.
