Bentley prepares Shooting Brake model?
It seems that shooting brake models are a hit lately. The two-door wagons are coming out of the woodwork and everyone seems to want to jump on that wagon (literally and figuratively speaking). The latest company to hitch a ride? Why, Bentley, of course. It seems that they are thinking of a shooting brake concept to wow Bentley and wagon lovers alike and not the type that arrived with the Bentley Continental Flying Star by Touring Superleggera.
"We have an idea in the back of our minds that we may yet bring to market," Stuart McCullough, VW Board Member said.
He also said that the design that’s been kicking around for a little while goes “a lot further” than the Touring-built concept and would be entirely Bentley from conception to assembly.
However, it is not clear on what model the new shooting brake version will be based on as the new Mulsanne platform will be used to develop a convertible and a coupe version and the Continental is nearing the end of its lifespan. Is this the hopeful dreams of a solitary Bentley member or a hint of what’s to come for the all-powerful Bentley? We’ll just have to wait and see.
