Bentley reveals EXP 100 GT conceptby Justin King
Designers have presented a vision of a Grand Tourer for 2035.
Bentley has finally revealed the EXP 100 GT concept, showcasing a vision for the grand tourer of the future and coinciding with the brand's 100th birthday.
The concept is based on an all-electric platform and designed to provide a choice between fully autonomous operation and human-piloted driving, with a flexible interior that provides three different seating configurations.
The exterior design aims to blend proportions of Bentley's historic grand tourers and futuristic elements, described as the GT car "for the world of 2035."
Sustainable yet luxurious materials can be found throughout, including 5,000-year-old copper-infused riverwood, recycled rice husks in the exterior paint, British farmed wool carpets, and embroidered cotton surfaces, among other unique components.
Adding to the futuristic luxury experience, Bentley has envisioned a digital personal assistant powered by artificial intelligence.
"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," said Bentley CEO Adrian Hallmark.
