Bentley - the EXP 9 F Design Concept Story
The Pinnacle Luxury SUV EXP 9 F represents the chance to take Bentley values of design, craftsmanship and engineering excellence to a new level. Bentley's experience with the all- wheel drive Continental range makes the concept of a Bentley SUV a natural progression. From a designer's perspective, EXP 9 F was a dream project, the chance to create a completely new type of Bentley. From the very beginning, the design team had a clear vision for the new Bentley SUV, as Dirk van Braeckel, Director of Design, explains: "EXP 9 F had to represent the absolute pinnacle of the sport utility sector, setting a new benchmark for this type of vehicle. The style had to reflect Bentley's sporting character despite its radically different package and purpose together with sculptured, flowing surfaces in keeping with the Bentley tradition."
