Bentley. Crossover. Nürburgring. Those three words were once inconceivable in the same sentence but they're finally coming together as Bentley's upcoming crossover has been spied on the 'Ring.

Bentley. Crossover. Nürburgring. Those three words were once inconceivable in the same sentence but they're finally coming together as Bentley's upcoming crossover has been spied on the 'Ring.

Previewed by the EXP 9 F concept, the production model is heavily camouflaged but features a Continental-inspired front fascia with a prominent grille that is flanked by circular headlights. Moving further back, we can see a tailgate-mounted spoiler and a dual exhaust system.

Our spies couldn't get close enough to snap interior photos but previous pictures have shown a luxurious cabin with a digital instrument cluster, circular air vents and plenty of wood trim.

Bentley has been coy on specifications but the model will ride on the MLB Evo platform and is expected to be offered with a twin-turbo 4.0-liter V8 and a 6.0-liter W12 engine. The British luxury marque has also confirmed plans for a plug-in hybrid variant in 2017.
