Like many of us, Geneva Motor Show goers felt that the Bentley EXP 9 F SUV Concept was downright hideous on the outside but amazingly beautiful on the inside. Well, Bentley has apparently heard and read all the reviews on its concept and is already working on a redesigned version.
A Bentley source told WhatCar that the EXP 9 F’s styling was ‘a little heavy handed’ and that an alternative, less retro style, is already in progress.
The source said that the redesigned version of the SUV Concept will have ‘more traditional SUV proportions and less retro surfacing.’
While the EXP 9 F SUV Concept is currently just a concept car, a production version of the model is likely to go on sale in 2015.
Refresher: Power for the Bentley EXP 9 F Concept comes from a 600-h- 6.0 liter twin-turbo W12 engine that’s found in the continental. Bentley says that its 4.0 liter twin-turbo V8 or a plug-in hybrid drivetrain could also meet the company’s performance requirements for an SUV.
