Bentley has released photos of their EXP 9 F SUV Concept, a third new model that would join their familiar Continental and Mulsanne vehicles.

According to reports, the new Bentley SUV will feature a modified version of the Continental‘s 6.0 liter twin-turbocharged W12 engine. However, hybrid and V8 designs are also being considered for future production.

The big SUV rides on massive 23-inch wheels and tires and features a panoramic glass roof, twin elliptical exhaust pipes and a split two-piece tailgate.

The 4+1 cabin is trimmed in both soft-touch and saddle leather, wood veneers and polished aluminum, bronze and gunmetal.

Bentley also has combined traditional analog dials with reconfigurable “virtual” instrumentation and advanced features such as 3D navigation.

The rear-seat occupants are treated to such amenities as a fold-down keyboard and full Internet connectivity via an iPad, a powered footrest, a drinks table and an infotainment screen for movies, as well as a rear armrest that lifts to reveal a cooled compartment for champagne and glasses.

“We are very excited by the potential of a high performance, ultra-luxury Bentley SUV,” Bentley Chairman and Chief Executive, Wolfgang Durheimer, said.

“We know that many Bentley customers already own SUVs. Almost 100 per cent of them own SUVs and there is no reason they shouldn’t own a Bentley SUV. “With the EXP 9 F, Bentley is making a clear statement of intent that we have both the expertise and desire to meet and exceed their expectations.”
