The EXP 9 F is Bentley's new Sport Utility Vehicle concept that is on display at the 2012 Beijing International Automotive Exhibition. The Company's designers and engineers have created a new take on the Grand Touring Bentley that can be piloted over sand dunes and down the autobahn all in comfort and style.

The Bentley EXP 9 F is a dramatically styled, all-wheel drive SUV which combines a spacious, versatile cabin and commanding driving position, with Bentley's hallmark power, performance, advanced technology and hand crafted luxury.

The concept Bentley was built with a 6.0 liter, twin-turbocharged W12 gas engine, developing 600bhp and 800 Nm of torque coupled with an 8-speed close-ratio transmission. In addition a range of other powertrain options are also under consideration. This includes Bentley's recently launched 500bhp, 4.0 litre gasoline V8 as well as a V6 plug-in hybrid. With a potential 30km range in full electric mode and CO2 emissions of 130g/km, the V6 hybrid would still be capable of a 0 to 100km/h sprint time of less than 5 seconds.

The concept could become the third Bentley model-line alongside the bespoke Mulsanne and the high performance Continental GT, GTC and Flying Spur.

"We are very excited by the potential of a high performance, ultra-luxury Bentley SUV. Since we first showed EXP 9 F at Geneva, the response has been overwhelming. Everyone seems to agree that an SUV is a natural fit for Bentley. An exciting range of drivetrain options including a hybrid V6 are under active consideration but one thing is for sure, any Bentley SUV would offer the thunderous performance for which the marque is renowned." Wolfgang Durheimer, Chairman and Chief Executive, Bentley Motors.
