The Bentley EXP 100 GT envisions a future of sustainable grand touring
Yes, you hear that right. This thoroughly futuristic concept from Bentley is a sustainable mobility solution and autonomous too ! the carmaker has envisioned this concept as part of its centenary celebrations.
The car, like every other Bentley, hosts gorgeous curves and lines making up for nothing short of a visual treat. The overall design draws cues from many of the carmaker’s historic Grand tourers from the past.
Bentley imagines a literally ‘unearthly’ in-cabin experience in the EXP 100GT. They would make generous use of intelligent AI to bring out what they call the Bentley Personal Assistant. Thus the people inside the cabin could curate and make the most out of their Grand Tour experience.
Sustainability plays a role of paramount importance in the Bentley EXP 100GT concept. The car makes use of a number of recycled products in its design and manufacture. 5,000-year-old Copper Infused Riverwood, Compass exterior paint made from recycled rice husks, 100% organic leather-like textile from wine making would all serve as fair instances.
This Bentley concept introduces light as the luxury of the future. The exterior beautifully incorporates light to bring life to the design. The illuminated matrix grille and Flying B mascot are all part of a great play of light. When one approaches the car, these come to life and light frolicks across the grille, throgh the mascot and along the bonnet central spine of the car and into the cabin itself! Man, that is some serious photodrama…
The cabin sees even more of this with a bunch of glass prisms lined up on the glass roof that capture light and transfer it into the cabin through fibre optics. You will never want to get out of such an epic place.
The adaptable Biometric seating with three different configurations ensure maximum comfort to the occupants.
The all-electric powertrain would offer a 700km range on every charge. The EXP100GT would also be a fully autonomous car that could also be driven whenever one wishes to.
Adrian Hallmark, Bentley Chairman and CEO, said: “Today, on our Centenary, we demonstrate our vision of the future of our Marque, with the Bentley EXP 100 GT – a modern and definitive Grand Tourer designed to demonstrate that the future of luxury mobility is as inspirational and aspirational as the last 100 years.
Bentley has, and will continue to enhance and enrich every single journey and the lives of every single person who travels in, or has the honour to be a part of creating our extraordinary products.”
Stefan Sielaff, Director of Design said: “The Bentley EXP 100 GT represents the kind of cars we want to make in the future. Like those iconic Bentleys of the past, this car connects with its passengers’ emotions and helps them experience and safeguard the memories of the really extraordinary journeys they take.”
This is how Bentley imagines themselves to be in 2035. Are you excited?
