Bringing the Outside In: The Bentley EXP 100 GT

By Katy Donoghue

July 18, 2019

Bentley is celebrating its 100-year anniversary with the Bentley EXP 100 GT concept car, which debuted earlier this month in Crewe, England.

The automaker has always embodied the spirit of grand touring. Whether driving or being driven (and let’s be honest, when it’s a Bentley, the latter is more likely) the experience of the road is the top priority. With that in mind, the EXP 100 GT looks ahead to what luxury transportation will look like in 2035: AI and sustainability.

“The Bentley EXP 100 GT represents the kind of cars we want to make in the future. Like those iconic Bentleys of the past, this car connects with its passengers’ emotions and helps them experience and safeguard the memories of the really extraordinary journeys they take,” said Stefan Sielaff, Bentley’s Director of Design.

The interior blends the craftsmanship we’ve come to expect from Bentley with the technology of the future, all with the goal of bringing the outside in. A tactile environment is created with a 100 percent organic leather-like textile, British Farmed Wool carpets, naturally felled wood, and embroidered cotton.

The lighting within comes from the natural light outside, through an innovative glass roof with prisms that transfer sun rays and moon beams alike into the cabin’s fiber optics. The Adaptable Biometric Seating is modular and tech smart, able to suit the comfort of the driver and passengers as needed.

A highlight for the EXP 100 GT has to be the Bentley Personal Assistant in the main console, engaged with via hand gestures over an illuminated crystal that hails from Cumbria, England. This makes the driving experience of the grand tour completely personalized, offering five unique options: Enhance, Cocoon, Capture, Re-Live, and Customise. Plus, elevated air and sound curation allows for a bout of self-care while on the road.

Whether you want your grand tour to feel like you’re driving with the top down without having to open the window a crack, looking for a bit of respite and privacy, or something wholly individual to you, the Bentley EXP 100 GT should be anyone’s goal for the ultimate personalized journey in 2035.
