Rising gas prices aren’t deterring manufacturers from making sports utility vehicles. Now there is a new entry in the burgeoning ‘Super SUV’ class of vehicles (such as Lamborghini’s Urus) with the Bentley EXP 9F, which debuted at the Beijing Motor Show. Design Boom reports that the EXP F9 is modeled after the ‘Blower Bentleys’ of the 1920s. Under the hood, expect to find a 6L, twin-turbocharged W12 petrol engine and 8-speed transmission. For the environmentally conscious and gas price averse (shouldn’t really matter to you if you can swing a Bentley, though) there are also plans for a Hybrid V6 option.
Other features on the EXP 9F concept include 23″ alloy wheels, three driving modes (comfort, sport and off-road), Internet connectivity, picnic hampers in the trunk and other luxuries amenities you would expect from Bentley. No solid word on the pricing yet, but if you gotta ask…
