Bentley has revealed its EXP 100 GT concept car which is meant to mark the 100 year milestone for this iconic company. It envisages the future of grand touring with this vehicle which looks very futuristic and also boasts some very futuristic features such as an artificial intelligence-powered butler.
The low-slung GT has a striking design with plenty of carbon fiber and aluminum going around. The headlights have an interesting design element as they appear to just blend in with the massive front grill.
The interior looks no less futuristic than the interior with premium materials such as 5,000 year old copper-infused Riverwood. All of the materials in the car are meant to create a sustainable yet luxurious future, says Bentley. You can’t expect a car of the future to run on something as primitive as gasoline. It’s obviously an electric vehicle with a claimed range of 435 miles on a single charge. Bentley also says that it can charge from zero to 80 percent in just 15 minutes.
The AI-powered butler called Bentley Personal Assistant is a very useful addition. It will be able to take care of tasks such as charging the car, adjusting seats, switching between modes for passengers, and curating the experience for each passenger based on their biometric information and the overall environmental conditions.
Since this is a concept car much of the claims would obviously never be put to the test. It’s interesting to see, nevertheless, how Bentley envisages the future of motoring. It looks quite good to me.
