Bentley took us for a wild ride during its centenary celebration with a trio of stunning limited edition automobiles. This luxurious collection includes two Continental GT variants and one from the Mulsanne range. The first out of the gates is the Number 9 Edition, which was followed by the W.O. Edition, then by the Number 1 Edition. All three are unique homages to the British marque’s grand automotive history. It appears that the curtains are staying open this time for the Bentley EXP 100 GT.
It’s not often that we get a pleasant surprise such as this extravagant concept coupe. Thinking that the festivities are over, we were not expecting that the company was hiding another ace under its sleeve. Shortly after remembering its exceptional past, Bentley is teasing us with the future of transportation. The electric powertrain can generate up to 1,106 lb-ft of torque. This pushes the EV from standstill to 60 miles per hour in just 2.5 seconds with a top speed of 186 miles per hour. It’s no slouch when it comes to range either. We’re looking at up to 435 miles on a full charge.
The first thing the caught our attention was the front-end dominated by a grille with thousands of LEDs that meld with its headlights. The light show extends higher up as a strip of LEDs runs along the length of the bonnet and ends just the illuminated Flying B ornament. So far, we are loving the colorway combination of ash, copper, and silver. Step inside the lavish cabin to bear witness to the sheer opulence of the Bentley EXP 100 GT. It can seat up to four people but can adjust to give more space for two passengers in autonomous mode.
