Bentley made a statement the night before the Geneva International Motor Show during VW’s Group Night, where each of the parent company’s brands showcased their latest and most spectacular vehicle. The British luxury automaker wowed the crowd with a concept that was hard to believe upon first glance. Their EXP 9 F concept SUV will be utilized to draw interesting feedback regarding actual production.
It’s all in the details: massive 23” alloy wheels; the signature bold Bentley grille; a powerful 6-liter W12 engine that can make up to 600 horsepower; an 8-speed transmission; and luxury tailgating fit for the Kentucky Derby, the EXP 9 F will overly exceed expectations from consumers looking to purchase an ultra elite SUV.
If production reaches a minimum of 3,500 units and sold well beyond the most expensive SUVs on the market—the Range Rover and Porsche Cayenne Turbo—this Bentley could be revolutionary.
