So what is up next for Bentley after the Bentayga SUV? That's a question that the luxury automaker is finding itself asking itself at the moment. Speaking with Top Gear, Bentley CEO Wolfgang Durheimer says there are two projects on the table up for consideration.

 

The first one is doing a variant of the Bentayga which will become more coupe-like (think BMW X6 and Mercedes-Benz GLE Coupe) and feature a number of performance enhancements.

 

The second option is to do a production version of the EXP 10 Speed 6 concept shown at the Geneva Motor Show this year.

 

“The customer response to EXP 10 Speed 6 was phenomenal, and we want to build on this and make it a reality,” said Durheimer.

 

Making this option more intriguing is the availability of an all-electric powertrain delivering around 400 to 500 horsepower. There will also a be a gas engine and possibly a hybrid powertrain to go with it.

 

Now both of these models might appear in Bentley's lineup, but the decision will have one of these models appear much faster than the other.

 

“It’s about return on investment. When does the money come back in?” said Durheimer.

Pretty car, almost an egg but they put enough creases in the right places to give it style. I like how it end up over the rear wheels from this picture. Masculine, but sleek.
