Bentley Celebrates 100th Birthday With Autonomous EXP 100 GT

Presenting Bentley's Most Daring Concept Ever: The EXP 100 GT

"Today, on our Centenary, we demonstrate our vision of the future of our Marque, with the Bentley EXP 100 GT - a modern and definitive Grand Tourer created to demonstrate that the future of luxury mobility is as inspirational and aspirational as the last 100 years", said Bentley CEO Adrian Hallmark.

Any old vehicle can get you to and from work, but those who spend six figures on a Bentley expect something more, a rich in-car experience that inspires a little rush every time the driver door unlocks.

Bentley added cool themes to the change up the interior's atmosphere.

Bentley is sketchy about the car's construction, claiming only that its comparatively low kerb weight results from a structure of "lightweight aluminium and carbon fibre".

But this Bentley is more than a pretty face.

Another sustainable resource that plays heavily in the EXP 100 GT cabin is natural light.

Even the car's light is luxurious, as it collect's light through it's glass roof and transfers it throughout the cabin using fiber optics. The cabin has twin doors, each two metres wide that lift outwards and upwards. Reactive seat surfaces respond to passenger position while driving, and automatically offer improved support where necessary, says Bentley. The seats also work with other biometric sensors to track things like blood pressure and eye and head movements.

Said to be inspired by the company's intelligent and forward-thinking customers, the auto comes with a unique AI system called the Bentley Personal Assistant.

Passengers can choose from five distinct modes, including "Enhance", which harvests light, sound and smell from outside of the auto to deliver an "open air" like experience, and "Cocoon", which does the exact opposite, while "Re-Live" can replay highlights from your journey.

Jadeja miscued it, the ball went straight up and Williamson made no mistake as he came round to get underneath. He nearly won the match alongside Dhoni and his all-round performance was brilliant for the entire match.

"Capture" mode hits the record button, grabbing both inside and outside footage and splicing it into a personalized grand touring movie. The Custom setting allows you to mix and match the four modes and can be selected by the driver or passenger. Additionally, a cartridge system within the EXP 100 GT can also deliver luxury items and services, says Bentley.

The EXP 100 GT represents the kinds of cars we want to make in the future. Bentley designers do a nice job blending classic Bentley, futuristic luxury and powerful grand touring cues into a dramatic piece of machinery. At the rear, Bentley gives a geometry lesson with a stretched hexagon standing atop a large trapezoidal vent.

Ambient lighting can be adjusted for specific moods and additional effects are delivered through projection mapping onto trim panels such as door pads.

The car's front end features an illuminated matrix grille which responds when a person approaches the auto, where light plays across the grille, through the mascot and along the bonnet's central spine, then into the car's cabin. The auto essentially comes to life like a loyal puppy greeting its master. Exterior aluminum and copper accents tie the design with Bentley heritage, representing the alloy used by W.O. Bentley in the WWI-era BR1 Aero engine piston. The four electric motors make 1,106 lb-ft of torque, which it puts down as efficiently as possible via a torque vectoring system.

Onboard are 4 electric motors producing 1,500nm of torque that can help propel the auto to 100km/h (62mph) in 2.5 seconds and on to a top speed of 300km/h (186mph) while also offering a 700km range that can receive 80% of charge in just 15 minutes.

Bentley says future battery technology will offer five times the conventional energy density, so charging the EXP 100 GT to 80 percent will take a mere 15 minutes. For instance, it can ramp up drive performance on winding mountain roads, or dial things way down on more casual city commutes.

Bentley has marked its centenary by revealing a highly intelligent electric auto called the EXP 100 GT.

The video clip below is definitely a bit slow and drawn-out, but it does nicely illustrate a few of the EXP 100 GT's features, including the exterior lighting. Hopefully they'll make an actual physical concept auto out of the renderings and roll it out at one of the remaining events.
