Crew-based manufacturer, Bentley, has just presented its new concept sportscar – the Bentley EXP 10 Speed 6 at the 2015 Geneva Motor Show. Unlike Bentley’s traditional sports coupes and convertibles with four seats, this new baby is a light, svelte and toned sportscar with two seats. Bentley says that the form of the car is inspired from the company’s sporting heritage, which shows in the new concept’s sporty stance.

The concept car is a British interpretation of a high performance two seater sportscar using modern automotive design, highly skilled handcrafting, the finest materials and advanced performance technology.

The exterior design of EXP 10 Speed 6 is an expression of muscular, athletic surfaces inspired by the aerodynamic shapes of aircraft fuselages and wings.

The shapes and lines of EXP 10 Speed 6 represent a dynamic sculpture, creating harmony between sharp lines and flowing surfaces and using twisted surfaces to imply speed

The inspiration for the interior comes from the continuous line that runs around the cabin, driving through the console and into two symmetrical wings before flowing into the door and looping back into the console armrest.

The interior uses traditional materials. Note the doors of the EXP 10 Speed 6 that feature 3D quilting, resulting in diamond pattern

 Cutting-edge 3D metal printing technology has allowed the grille mesh, exhausts, door handles and side vents to be delivered with micro-scale design detail precision.

Combined with muscular proportions and an athletic stance through the use of a short front overhang, long bonnet, low grille and wide rear shape with a long C-post, the exterior styling hints at high speed potential of the car.
