Bentley EXP 10 Speed 6 Looks Sweet As A Roadster Too

Now that the Bentayga is out on the road, Bentley can move on to its next project – which, we hope, will be the production version of the EXP 10 Speed 6 concept. And given the company’s track record, it wouldn’t be out of the question to project that the coupe will lead to a convertible version that’ll probably look pretty close to what you see here.

Bentley took the wraps off the Speed 6 concept at the 2015 Geneva Motor Show, previewing a sportier counterpart to the Continental GT and a challenger to the luxury grand tourers coming from rival Aston Martin.

Elements of its design – penned by Luc Donckerwolke who’s since departed for Hyundai’s Genesis brand – have since worked their way onto other models rolling out of the factory in Crewe, but we’re still waiting for the sports car itself to be approved for production. Unfortunately the tightening of purse-strings at parent company Volkswagen in the wake of the diesel emissions scandal may mean it’ll have to wait a while longer.

In the meantime, we can dream of things to come thanks to this rendering from RC-Workchop, which not only virtually removes the roof from the EXP 10 but also gives it a sinister blacked-out look – save for the evidently F1-inspired modern take on whitewall tires.

    Pretty car… but that name is odd. Have the German owners influenced the Brits?

      Wouldn’t EXP be for experiment/al? Such as Jaguar C- for Jaguar (C = concept) in cars such as the C-X75 or C-X17? Rolls Royce 103EX? Mclaren MP4-X? You get the idea.

    WOW! Really dig the EXP as a convertible. This render looks absolutely sinister murdered out. I would have gone with a less typical wheel choice, maybe a turbine styled rim. Otherwise, this a winner. The hood treatment looks aggressive, without being too boyracer. I dare say, I think I like it more than the hardtop concept. BUILD IT!
