Are Those Closeted Crazy Bentley Engineers Up To Something Naughty Again?

Let's hope so.

Bentley has recently proven that it employs a roomful of bonkers engineers with the Continental GT3-R. We’re not at all complaining, and neither is Bentley management. In fact, the suits are embracing that newfound badassity. According to Top Gear, Bentley wants to mark its 100th anniversary in 2019 in a really big way. Even CEO Wolfgang Durheimer admitted this. What’s in the game plan? How does a $1 million+ hypercar sound to you? Umm...yeah.

Durheimer also runs Bugatti, therefore he’s in charge of the Veyron replacement. He was also the Porsche R&D chief responsible for the 918 Spyder. Clearly the guy knows exactly what he’s doing. "I could imagine there is a space for a Bentley at around £1m," he admitted to TG with a smile. In the meantime, now that the Bentayga has successfully launched, Durheimer and his team will decide whether to proceed with a production version of the EXP 10 Speed 6 Concept. But we’re willing to bet that hypercar possibility is very real, and Durheimer is just the man to make it happen.
