2019 will mark 100 years of Bentley and the automaker is considering doing something special for the occasion.
“Our centenary would be a good time to create a new limited series car,” said Bentley CEO Wolfgang Dürheimer.
There are a number of ideas being considered, including a hypercar.
“That project will be investigated intensively in Crewe within the next month. The question is, do we build the standard car you would expect in that segment? Or do we go with lots of carbon fibre and lightweight components? Now that would be a car we could take to the big guns,” said Dürheimer.
Now Bentley has floated the idea of a supercar before. Back in 1999, the company revealed the Hunaudières Concept which packed an 8L W16 engine capable of hitting 350 KPH (about 217 MPH).
