Bentley Just Built A Sports Car, And It Looks Fantastic

Bentley isn’t a marque really synonymous with sports cars. In fact, only recently have they dipped their toes in the world of racing with the Continental GT3. Thankfully, though, a few designers and engineers got together and gave the world a car that nobody specifically asked for — the Bentley EXP 10 Speed 6. Not that we’re complaining.

It looks a lot like a shrunken, more handsome version of Bentley’s already pretty Continental GT. The lines are cleaner, the profile is much sportier, and the whole thing is undoubtedly lighter than anything in their current lineup.

So far Bentley hasn’t said what sits under the hood, but it’s safe to say the ‘Speed 6’ designation means six-cylinders. I’d put my bet on somewhere near 500 horsepower with power going straight to the back, sort of like the Jaguar F-Type.

While the exterior is pretty enough in itself, the interior seems like an extremely nice place to be. Posh brown leather, a giant central touchscreen, and one “cherry wood” shifter that just oozes luxury. This thing is the definition of Bentley.

No word on whether it will actually make it into production— though I sincerely hope it will. For now, the EXP 10 Speed 6 can be seen on display in Geneva in all its glory.
