GENEVA --Bentley's EXP 10 Speed 6 two-seater concept unveiled here may join the British luxury brand's lineup before long.
The EXP 10 shows how the brand's styling will evolve to become sportier and more emotionally appealing, Bentley CEO Wolfgang Duerheimer said.
If approved, a production version of the concept would be the brand's fifth model and would launch after the Bentayga SUV, Bentley's fourth model, which will go on sale next year.
The show car represents "the ultimate expression of our vision for Bentley's future," Duerheimer said.
"It could be a future model line, alongside the Continental GT," he said.
The production car could be built on a lighter weight, front-engine platform developed by Porsche, another Volkswagen Group brand. A production EXP 10 would compete against two-seat sports cars from Ferrari and Aston Martin.
The EXP 10 gets its initial letters from "experimental." Previous Speed 6 Bentleys were named for their straight six-cylinder engines.
Bentley has not released details of the EXP 10's powertrain. Bentley sells the Continental Flying Spur four-door sedan, Continental GT coupe and the flagship Mulsanne sedan.
