Report: Bentley’s eyeing a possible supercar to celebrate first centennial in 2019

Bentley’s really hot on their heels with their desire and attempts to reinvigorate the Flying B’s motorsports and racing heritage as word from Top Gear reports of their interest in a possible new supercar.

Rumored to be scheduled for launch in 2019, this supposed supercar would be a tribute to celebrate the company’s first 100 years in existence, according to Bentley’s CEO, Wolfgang Durheimer, who spoke with the magazine.

“Our centenary would be a good time to create a new limited series car,” said Durheimer.

As expected, he also kept his cards close, making sure to not reveal any details regarding said supercar.

On a separate note, Durheimer shed some light on the matter that is the EXP 10 Speed 6 Concept, which should be ready for production within the next few months at their assembly line in Crewe. Expect the use of lots of carbon fiber and other lightweight components, building up anticipation that the production version could perhaps be Bentley’s fastest, most capable performance car in their entire history.

That’s a high expectation when you consider the Bentley plans to attack “the big guns” in the segment, being the Porsche 911, Mercedes-AMG GT, the Jaguar F-Type, and so-on.
