Bentley to "Tweak" the EXP 9 F Concept SUV By the End of the Year

When Bentley revealed the oddly named EXP 9 F Concept SUV, some of us cheered out of delight, but many almost cringed at its gaudy appearance. To call a Bentley gaudy is like calling most pop singers “Divas;” it’s pretty much a given. But the EXP 9 F was a little over the top – to say the least.

In a recent interview, Bentley spokesperson, Martin Broomer, made reference to the possibility of the EXP 9 F undergoing a bit of a redesign before it is re-revealed around the end of 2012. Bentley made it clear that the EXP 9 F was a show car and not a “dressed-up preproduction car,” which means it will likely be scaled down a bit in production.

We’ll see exactly how far Bentley takes this revision to this controversial concept. We do know that Bentley won’t strip it of the typical over-the-top design of its vehicles, but it does need some mild adjustments.

For now, all we can do is sit and wait until Bentley feeds us a little information on what it has in store for its debut SUV. One thing is for sure, this tweaking is a solid indicator that this is a little more than just another concept; Bentley is serious about jumping into the ultra-premium SUV segment.

i bet this will be an expensive car if it goes into production. but then again, it will have a good build quality and it will be quite exclusive, i guess.

the car looks awesome. at least from my point of view. but still...when is it gonna be mass produced? and i don’t think that merc, range rover and all others will come to a stand still until bentley reveals it’s car.

a Bentley SUV? What’s wrong with a Range Rover?
