The cyberites dubbed Syberites took us up to Flashback Mountain over the weekend, trotting out shots of Bentley's 1999 prototype, which looks quite familiar in light of a certain mad bercar from Alsace. Yes, a few months before there was a Veyron, there was Bentley's Geneva motor show queen from last century. Arriving just a year after V-dub bought the venerable Brit marque, the Hunaudieres (hmm, that certainly sounds French) did share some underpinnings with the yet-to-be Continental GT. That same year at the Tokyo motor show, Bugatti introduced the EB 18 4 Veyron concept car, which at the time sported a prototypical W18 engine. Of course, back then, no one though they'd ever build either of them. No imagination, us.
