British luxury marque Bentley has continued its centenary celebrations by revealing the EXP 100 GT.
The fully-electric concept looks to the future of luxury mobility with the brand claiming it’s a reimaging of the grand tourer for the world of 2035.
The battery system powers four motors that produce a whopping 1500Nm of torque. Bentley claims the 0-100km/h dash takes “less than 2.5 seconds,” on its way to a top speed of 300km/h.
Bentley says future battery technology will offer five times the conventional energy density which will give the car a driving range of 700km. While charging said battery to 80 per cent of capacity will take only 15 minutes.
Made from lightweight aluminium and carbon fibre, the EXP 100 GT measures 5.8 metres long and almost 2.4 metres wide. Bentley says the exterior proportions are reminiscent of many of brand’s historic grand tourers.
The driver and passenger doors are two metres wide and pivot outwards and upwards for easy access. Fully open, they rise to almost three metres.
Exterior lighting is a highlight with an illuminated matrix grille and Flying B mascot which come to life as one approaches the car. At the rear, a ‘horseshoe’ section of the boot is a 3D OLED screen on which lighting effects can blend in with the rear lamps.
The cabin is designed to deliver “a harmonious environment designed around the well-being of its passengers.” The luxury appointments will work in conjunction with the Bentley Personal Assistant AI that can personalise the driving experience to the occupants.
The famous Bentley craftsmanship is on show through the use of 5000-year-old copper infused Riverwood, organic leather-like textile from winemaking, Cumbrian crystal interfaces and British farmed wool carpets.
Stefan Sielaff, Director of Design said: “The Bentley EXP 100 GT represents the kind of cars we want to make in the future. Like those iconic Bentleys of the past, this car connects with its passengers’ emotions and helps them experience and safeguard the memories of the really extraordinary journeys they take.”
