Bentley EXP 9 F SUV Concept, Top Gear Not Impressed

| March 12, 2012 |

Okay so I’m betting it was the word ‘Bentley’ that caught your eye there. And the Geneva Show turned the rumour mill into reality as the new model made its maiden appearance on the stage.

There is no word of the model being produced at the moment, but this is definitely a Bentley like no other. The words Bentley and SUV do not seem to go together but judging by the pictures taken at the show, the manufacturer does seem to have figured out how to put the two together.

You can see how the result is amazingly solid and impressive, although the fact remains that this design may not have any real market in the real world.

It certainly looks like a laid back SUV design though, which I reckon must be pretty hard to pull off successfully. A luxury SUV is not so unusual, but this model seems to be taking things a step further.

Judging by what I could see of the interior from the pictures that have whizzed around the internet, this model provides the kind of comfort you would expect from Bentley. This holds true both in the front and the rear of the vehicle.

I can just see this going on the school run in a few years time if Bentley decides to make it en masse. Heavens – can you imagine what would happen if it became widespread and – dare I say it – common? We shall see whether the model ever makes it past the car show.

The guys form Top Gear slated the EXP 9 F in last nights episode; with Hammond stating it was ‘Hideous and disgusting’, what do you think?
