Report: Bentley to enter Dakar rally with new SUV model

While we have no idea what the Bentley SUV will be called when it enters production (we really hope it isn’t called the EXP 9 F SUV), new reports state that the model will enter the Dakar rally race in 2013.

CAR magazine has learned that Bentley is currently buying back the Race Touaregs that Volkswagen Motorsport sold to private teams after leaving the event to enter the Polo WRC. Bentley will then update these racer SUVs for a 2013 competition.

The production version of the Bentley EXP 9 F SUV Concept should hit roads next year.

Bentley recently outline possible powertrain options that are currently under consideration. Those include a 500-hp 4.0 liter V8 and a new V6 plug-in hybrid with an electric-range of 18 miles.
