Bentley EXP 100 GT, a luxury coupe for tomorrow

NEW - Bentley unveils an autonomous and electric concept car to celebrate its centenary.

The Bentley EXP 100 GT concept embodies the brand's future. More precisely, it represents the 2035 luxury car according to the English firm. It will be necessary to get used to the lines of this imposing coupé, from which the manufacturer's future achievements will be inspired. Although the curves of this prototype are completely new, the Bentley brand is recognizable. In some ways, the EXP 100 GT is reminiscent of the latest Continental coupe. The very elongated rear also reminds us of the Jaguar XJ220 and the recent McLaren Speedtail.

When you look at the dimensions of this machine, you wonder if it is a coupe or a limousine: the EXP 100 GT is 5.8 m long and almost 2.4 m wide! The doors are two metres wide, but swivel outwards and upwards for easy access. Wide open, they rise to nearly three meters! All the materials used in the surprising interior of this style study are "sustainable" or "eco-responsible". Veneer, for example, comes from trees that have naturally fallen to the ground.

All materials used in the cabin are "sustainable" or "eco-responsible".
The Bentley EXP 100 GT also features adjustable biometric seats, offering three different configurations that vary depending on whether the driver is at the controls of the car or using the autonomous mode. Yes, like many recent concept cars, the Bentley prototype could do without a driver. The Bentley PDA's artificial intelligence offers 5 modes.

Enhance mode captures the characteristics of the outdoor environment to provide a convertible feel under a glass roof. The "Cocoon" program offers a protected space, in particular by purifying the air and opacifying certain glazed areas for more privacy. The "Capture" function records indoor and outdoor events to integrate them into your car's unique history, while the "Re-Live" mode replays the highlights of your adventure. Finally, the "Customise" program combines elements from all other modes, which are individually selected by the driver or passenger.

The Bentley EXP 100 GT also offers the freedom to disconnect to allow passengers to enjoy the moment. The English firm predicts that in the near future, the omnipresence of screens will make moments of relaxation and disconnection rare. Maybe they'll even become a luxury. This style study is powered by four electric machines, for a total torque of 1,500 Nm. This would allow this high-end coupe to go from 0 to 100 km/h in 2.5 seconds and hit 300 km/h. Bentley, very optimistic, imagines that this electric machine will be able to recharge its batteries to 80% in 15 minutes, that its weight will not exceed 1,900 kg and that it will be able to travel 700 km in a single charge.

The ultimate in refinement, a cartridge system provides access to luxury services and items. Key features include the water jug with purifier and crystal glasses, as well as the cartridge delivery system that sends items into the cabin stored in a storage space under the hood.
