Bentley EXP 12 Speed 6E Concept

As many know, auto manufacturers are starting to dabble with EVs and Bentley is certainly no exception to this game. Bentley showed off its Bentley EXP 12 Speed 6E Concept at the 2017 Geneva International Motor Show and the future of performance and luxury looks real promising. With their sleek new concept, Bentley states that this is "not just an opportunity to envision an electric Bentley. It represents the future of Bentley design, both inside and out." Just a quick glance at this beauty of a machine and you can tell that they aren't messing around.

Set out to make a ground-breaking statement, Bentley takes their design language a step further into the unknown. The EXP 12 Speed 6E, inspired by modern architecture and the natural world, is a convertible coupe featuring a long bonnet with twin scoops and a wide body that is a sure head-turner. These aren't just for show either. The hood scoops are functional and will serve as dual heat sinks, keeping the batteries and drivetrain cool without additional technology. The concept also sports Bentley's iconic matrix grille and many stainless-steel accents that oozes luxury. And since this is an all-electric car, of course they will need some great lighting. Take a look at its trademark headlights with a crystal-like appearance and the illuminated '6' logo that can be seen inside the grille. All this will be powered by a electric motor and powertrain which is said to provide unreal levels of torque on top of the ability to drive long ranges on a single charge.

The interior keeps the electric theme going with its center console, a solid curved piece of glass with a high-definition OLED display, allowing the driver to control all of the car's functions to their heart's content. More stainless-steel elements can also be seen in various areas, but the eye is mostly drawn to its gear selector that features a sparkling copper finish. In addition, the entire interior is clothed in cherry-red leather and the veneer door panels are all handcrafted to exceed customer expectations. Sitting in here will certainly make you feel like a million bucks.
