The Bentley EXP 100 GT is a celebration of 100 years of Bentley Motors and a look towards the future and what's next?! Positioning itself as far as 2035, the car features both autonomous and self-driven experiences mixing in many sustainable materials and futuristic AI technologies.
The EXP 100 GT is Bentley's 13th concept, but instead of following the traditional naming structure pays tribute to their 100 year history since 1919, with the GT representing the Grand Touring characteristics. The onlooker is visually greeted by a large illuminated front grill with headlights overlapping the sides, with a sharp shoulder creaseline leading towards the swooping rear. The physical scale is large, coming in at 5.8 metres in length and 2.4 metres wide, while weighing 1,900kg - an impressive feat considering the batteries.
Onboard are 4 electric motors producing 1,500nm of torque that can help propel the car to 100km/h (62mph) in 2.5 seconds and on to a top speed of 300km/h (186mph) while also offering a 700km range that can receive 80% of charge in just 15 minutes.
Most importantly though, where Bentley have built a brand of cars for the driver, the idea is to move to a future where this continues to be possible in the same vehicle that also offers an autonomous experience if required alongside. With modes available including Cocoon (opaque glass and noise cancellation activated), Re-Live (replaying previous driving experiences with smells to match), Enhance (emphasise the sights and sounds from outside) and more, the idea is to incorporate levels of AI. It also features the Bentley Personal Assistant which would read your vital signs, remember all of your settings and optimise the experience. While also being able to save this information for any other Bentley figure you may drive anywhere in the world.
