Are Bentley branching out with a new baby?
It’s been a busy time for Bentley lately sales are on the way up with a record breaking 11,020 vehicles sold during 2014 and 2015 looks set to be a busy year too – Don’t worry at Rivervale Car Leasing we have got our eye on Bentley’s every move ……..
After record sales last year Bentley are only going to get busier as the Bentayga is launched. The Bentayga is Bentley’s first ever 4x4 SUV and Bentley say they already have enquiries from 4,000 potential customers before they have even seen the finished product!
But producing the Bentayga has not slowed Bentley down it now seems they are trying to woo Bond back from his love of Aston Martins to his original car of choice – a Bentley. In the original books by Ian Fleming, Bond started off driving a powerful ‘blowers’ Bentley with a supercharged engine.
The new concept vehicle was codenamed Baby and has now been revealed the Bentley Coupe Exp 10 Speed 6 Concept has been shown at the Geneva Motor Show looks wise it is consistent with the luxury we are used to with Bentley down to the stitched and quilted leather interior. Cherry wood makes an appearance inside as well as up to date technology via a central touchscreen.
From the outside, the front shows a larger squarer grille with headlights surrounded by an LED ring and the classic sports car style long bonnet.
Under the bonnet of Bentley’s baby is still a mystery but Bentley have confirmed a petrol-electric hybrid powertrain. When talking about the Bentley Coupe Concept a spokesperson from Bentley said
“A British interpretation of a high performance sports car using modern automotive design, highly skilled handcrafting, the finest materials and advanced performance technology.
So far it’s just a concept but we are expecting the Baby to go into productions expanding Bentley’s range further to 5 models. The estimation is we will see the new Bentley Sports car within 3 years with a price tag starting at £130,000
