Bentley's Continental GT is a big old coupe of a car. So here's the company's baby version: the EXP 10 Speed 6 concept car.

Bentley just showed off this two-seater car before the Geneva Motor Show proper. Man, this thing looks really good.

The outside of this car is way more vent-ey and sporty than you'd figure for a Bentley, I will say.

It's like a car for people who think an F-Type is just a little bit too common.

Bentley hasn't released any details on what engine this thing has, but 'Speed 6' in Bentley-speak typically translates to six cylinders. They even wrote '6' into the grille, but in a much more trick way than you might imagine. The mesh "includes varying depth with a complex 3D geometry only visible when viewed at an angle." Rad.

It's up to you to figure out what Bentley might pull from the VAG engine bin, or if they'd scratch something together themselves, as they do with the Mulsanne. I'm personally rooting for a VR6 configuration.

Oh, and the headlights are super sweet.

Much as I like the look and idea of this much more sporting Bentley, it's the interior that has me drooling. Here's a little pull quote from the press release.

Continuing the fusion of traditional materials and contemporary design statements, the doors of EXP 10 Speed 6 feature 3D quilting, milled directly in to solid straight-grain cherry wood. Each resulting diamond is finished with a copper centre.

There are no words for how much I want to drive around in a car with that kind of interior.

Just drool over the rest of the pictures now, and dream about running your hand along the Poltrona Frau leather.
