FRANKFURT -- Bentley will ask parent company Volkswagen AG in summer 2016 to greenlight a new roadster, says Bentley CEO Wolfgang Duerheimer.
Bentley showed the EXP 10 Speed 6 two-seater in March at the Geneva auto show and took it on a road tour to "all the major markets" for reactions, Duerheimer said last week at the auto show here.
"The answer was 'Don't ask us questions, do it. It is a no-brainer,' and we are intensively working on the business case," Duerheimer said. "We intend to hand it for approval in summertime."
Also "still on our list," Duerheimer said, is producing a car based on the Grand Convertible concept -- an open-top, two-door version of the Mulsanne flagship sedan.
