Bentley celebrates its 100th anniversary with a supercar from the future

One hundred years in business is no joke. Bentley decided to indulge itself and treat us all to something special by building this unique EXP 100 GT Concept.

One hundred years in business is no joke. Bentley decided to indulge itself and treat us all to something special by building this unique EXP 100 GT Concept. The all-electric, self-driving Gran Turismo vehicle has one primary reason for existence: to show us what Bentley models will be like around year 2035.

The EXP 100 GT comes equipped with a quartet of electric motors. Their performance ratings remain undisclosed, but the torque is officially reported to be as high as 1,500 Newton-meters (1,106 pound-feet). The supercar sprints from zero to 97 km/h (0-60 mph) in under 2.5 seconds and only maxes out at the much-coveted 300 km/h (186 mph).

Allegedly, the prototype vehicle packs an innovative traction battery that can zap from empty to 80% full in mere 15 minutes. Once fully charged, it should be sufficient for 700 kilometers (435 miles) of uninterrupted driving. Quite impressive, considering that the car measures 5.8 meters (19 feet) long and almost 2.4 m (7.9 ft.) wide and weighs in at 1,900 kilograms (~4,200 lbs).

One of the most important features of the EXP 100 GT comes in the form of an AI-powered Bentley Personal Assistant. Its creators claim that the smart system will be able to literally predict the driver and passengers’ intentions. For instance, the power-assisted front seats will use biometric scan data to automatically and quietly adjust themselves to anyone taking the seat. The system will also keep track of the pulse and blood pressure.

Another major highlight of the concept car can be found at its front end, where there is a faux grille adorned with 6,000 LEDs forming an intricate pattern.

The cabin makes use of top-notch trimming materials, some of which are recyclable.

However impressive, it is clear as day that the Bentley EXP 100 GT will never make it into production in its current form.
