As one of the oldest British auto firms, Bentley, which is owned by the Volkswagen Group, is ready to make an important step into the future. And they will do so with the EXP 100 GT, a concept car that will be unveiled to the world on July 10.
The study will feature a zero-emission powertrain and will have the ability to drive its occupants on its own.
It will also get “a fascinating array of materials seamlessly blended together by the designers at Bentley Motors, who have taken handcraftsmanship of materials to an as yet unseen level to set the new benchmark for luxury craftsmanship”, according to the automaker.
Everything else is in the tiny details seen in the video that accompanies the announcement. Thus, the show car gets illuminated sill logos that become visible after opening of the door, which seems to be rising vertically, suggesting perhaps that it will get scissor doors. The EXP moniker has previously been used on other Bentley concepts, the ‘100’ is a clear reference to the company turning 100 this year, and ‘GT’ tells us that it’s a grand tourer.
Fans can register on the dedicated Centenary microsite here before this coming Saturday, to see the live unveiling of the EXP 100 GT Concept, next Wednesday, at 16:00 GMT (11:00 am EST). Nothing has been confirmed so far, but given the importance of the show car, we wouldn’t be surprised if Bentley decides to bring it to the 2019 Frankfurt Motor Show in September.
