Bentley celebrates 100th anniversary with futuristic EXP 100 GT concept

Bentley has unveiled a futuristic all-electric EXP 100 GT luxury gran turismo concept to give a glimpse of what the company’s future models might look like after the year 2035.

The Bentley EXP 100 GT packs a fully electric powertrain consisting of four electric motors and a torque vectoring system with a combined output of 1340 horsepower and 1491Nm of torque. With such massive torque, Bentley claims that the EXP 100 GT can touch 60mph (98 kmph) from standstill in less than 2.5 seconds on its way to a top speed of 300kmph.

The exact figures of the battery pack have not been revealed but the Bentley EXP 100 GT can be charged 80 per cent of its total capacity in just 15 minutes. When fully charged, the GT can travel up to 700km before needing to be recharged. That’s a lot considering the other big claim that the VW group had laid before was for 1,000km for the XL1 concept. The XL1 was in production for a very limited period of time and is already sold out. It has now become a collector’s item with its powertrain as well as funky styling elements.

The cabin of this concept is what we would expect the future of luxury automobiles to be. The open air cabin comes with three different seat configuration options. It also features advanced technology like on-board personal assistant with artificial intelligence that will develop knowledge about the owner and maximise comfort.

The cabin also has embedded biometrics that not only tracks your eye and head movement but also measures your blood pressure. All the data will be then collectively used to make the owner’s experience more personal and utmost comfortable.

The concept will somewhat become reality but we have a waiting period of about 16 years for that. Whenever the launch is, we are pretty stoked that the Bentley EXP 100 GT will be a limited edition collectible.
