Bentley SUV Concept to be shown at Goodwood
Bentley's highly controversial EXP 9F (that is the model name, not its registration number, you might be surprised to hear) will make an appearance at the Goodwood Festival of Speed.
After the near-universal derision that greeted its unveiling at this spring's Geneva Motor Show, one might have thought it would never see the light of day again. Bentley clearly believes that the whole world is out of step except them, so British public will get a chance to giggle at the charmless SUV, which looks like a 1970s American off-roader that has been treated to a Mansory bodykit. Or possibly something that Maybach would have come up with.
Driving duties for the past and present Bentley models will be shared by three modern-day Bentley Boys. Le Mans legend Derek Bell MBE will be joined by four-time world rally champion Juha Kankkunen together with Guy Smith, who drove the winning Speed 8 across the finish line at Le Mans in 2003.
