Bentley has released details and images of the EXP 9 F SUV Concept will make its official debut at the Geneva show later this week. The style had to reflect Bentley’s sporting although labeled a concept car.
“We are very excited by the potential of a high performance, ultra-luxury Bentley SUV. We know that many Bentley customers already own SUVs, admiring their style, luxury, performance and versatility. With EXP 9 F, Bentley is making a clear statement of intent that we have both the expertise and desire to meet and exceed their expectations.” Wolfgang Dürheimer, Chairman and Chief Executive, Bentley Motors.
The Bentley EXP 9 F represents a fusion of contemporary, design language in an innovative and contemporary way. On the surface, it is dominated by a prominent wire-mesh grille, the turbine theme is carried over to the 23-inch alloy wheels, that taillights were inspired by fighter jet engines, glowing from within and projecting light outwards.
“The EXP 9 F had to represent the absolute pinnacle of the sport utility sector, setting a new benchmark for this type of vehicle,” says Dirk van Braeckel, Director of Design at Bentley.
As you would expect, the interior cleaves to Bentley tradition with large helpings of wood, the matrix grille, which features a 4+1 seating layout with a rear armrest lifting to reveal a cooled compartment for champagne. TFT “virtual” instrumentation along with 3D navigation provide a high-tech contrast to the old-world ambiance.
Under the hood, based around its 6.0-liter, twin-turbocharged W12 engine with an 8-speed transmission can produce 600bhp and 800Nm (590 lb-ft) of torque.
