Bentley is going to be 100 soon and what better way to commemorate the occasion than giving us a sneak peek of its future plans. The Bentley EXP 100 GT Concept, which in the words of the company is a transformative, zero-emission model is proof that the automaker is serious about sustainability. Since this is a concept, this is obviously not a car on sale.
Impressive Interior And Exterior
The futuristic EXP 100 GT is a low-slung, luxurious car with carbon fiber and aluminium built. The headlights look pretty impressive as they blend seamlessly with the front grille that has 6,000 LED lights. The front also has the “Flying B” mascot. At the back, there are LED brake lights which have been augmented with 3D OLED displays that can display animated graphics. On the inside, old copper-infused Riverwood has been used which is not only sustainable but also gives the car a distinct fragrance.
BENTLEY EXP 100 GT Offers A Range Of 435 miles On A Single Charge
This is basically an EV which offers a range of 435 miles on a fully charged battery. Speaking of the battery, the carmaker says that it will take just 15 minutes to juice up a drained battery to 80 percent of its capacity. The four motors of the car produce 1,400 horsepower and 1,106 pound-feet of torque, offering a top speed of 186-mph top and acceleration to 62 miles per hour in just 2.5 seconds.
Perhaps the most interesting thing about the Bentley EXP 100 GT Concept is that it gets its own digital assistant, called the Bentley Personal Assistant and much like the personal assistants on your mobile phones, this one will also make your life easier. It will do so by making sure the vehicle is charged and seats are adjusted to your liking. It will also use the environmental conditions and biometric information to provide a personalized experience to different passengers.
Four different modes will be offered to consumers. The first one dubbed Enhance will emulate an open-air driving experience with a glass roof. This can be pretty useful when you are passing through a deserted area but still want to take in the beauty of your surroundings. Next up is Cocoon, which will prevent onlookers from peeking inside. Then comes Capture, which records the trip, and the last is Re-Live which shows you the highlights of a trip. There is also an autonomous mode, which means the car can be out on autopilot and drive on its own without any input from you.

Not Coming Soon
As good as the car sounds, don’t expect to see it on the road anytime soon. The Concept just demos the ideas Bentley currently has. The real deal will be presented sometime in 2035.
