Bentley has announced a final decision regarding a production version of the EXP 10 Speed 6 concept will be made next year.

Company CEO Wolfgang Duerheimer wants a piece of Aston Martin's pie which is why he is very committed to make the concept a production reality. He says final evaluation will be conducted in the fourth quarter of this year and if every goes according to plan, an approval will come by 2016 so the vehicle will likely see the light of day in 2017.

In related news, Duerheimer declared the company's first ever SUV called Bentayga will carry a starting price of around $200,000 and it will be built at a 3,600-unit rate per year, with one third of the cars heading to United States. It will be one of the new models pursuing Bentley's objective of boosting annual sales from last year's 11,020 units to 15,000 cars. The high-riding model is expected to be unveiled in September at the Frankfurt Motor Show.

Another model in the works is a production version of the Grand Convertible concept, but Duerheimer didn't say exactly when it will come out.
