Bentley unveils its latest concept in early March at the Salon International De L’auto 2015. This is officially called EXP 10 Speed 6 concept and showcases Bentley new and future design language as envisaged by Luc Donckerwolke and Sang Yup Lee who head up Bentley’s design team.
The concept is officially described as a British interpretation of a high performance two seater sports car, drawing from the racing success of the company’s early years to the international Motorsport success of today. Bentley have fused its iconic design cues with progressive craftsmanship techniques and modern technologies to create what is arguably one of its most exciting and beautiful cars.
Bentley Chairman and CEO, Wolfgang Dürheimer, who unveiled the car in Geneva commented:
“Making its global debut at the Geneva Show, the EXP 10 Speed 6 is the ultimate expression of our vision for Bentley’s future – a powerful, exquisite and individual concept. This one car showcases modern automotive design, highly skilled British handcrafting, the finest materials and advanced performance technology. This is not just a new sports car concept – but the potential Bentley of sports cars – a bold vision for a brand with a bold future.”
I have worked on numerous projects during my time at Bentley but this one has been the pinnacle of my time there. It is also the project that I have invested most time in. For nearly a year I did little else but work on this car from its initial gestation, through various volume studies and styling concepts to creating and managing the build of the finally exterior design CAD model. That was a fantastic year!
