With sales increasing tenfold since the Volkswagen Group took over the British carmaker after a fierce battle with BMW, Bentley has been on a roll this year, despite a somewhat aging lineup. Featuring two seats and a long hood, and painted in a variation of British Racing Green, the EXP 10 Speed Six has a pretty good chance of going into production in the near future. Depite its name recalling a six-cylinder Bentley from over eight decades ago, the EXP 10 Speed 6 Concept has an exterior that actually blends late s proportions with modern design motifs. Although it has a clean overall look, there are a lot of muscular surfaces going on, with Bentley saying that they have been "inspired by the aerodynamic shapes of aircraft fuselages and wings.

The two-seater concept was revealed at the Geneva motor show and is said to be experimental in its design and has been revealed to gauge exactly what customers want from a Bentley sports car, as well as to get feedback on possible styling influences for all future models. Although the car has not been officially confirmed as going on sale, Bentley engineering chief Rolf Frech has admitted that all recent concepts from the company have made it to production. However, it will be subjected to "very professional" analysis in the US and China before a final decision is made on it being built. We have been thinking about it for a long time," said Frech.

The EXP 10 Speed 6 Concept was intended to go on sale about now and was motivated by factors and empty spaces seen as crucial at the time by the automaker. Needless to say, those plans were conceived half a decade ago in a somewhat different climate for Bentley, and that lighter sports car is now nowhere in sight -- not even on Bentley's back burner. A lot has happened in that half-decade -- the Bentayga is now here, for one thing -- and plenty of turnover has taken place at Crewe. The net effect is that the EXP 10 Speed 6 was delayed and delayed until it wasn't even in the pipeline, and this fact was confirmed by Bentley executives earlier this year
