Bentley’s EXP 9 F SUV may enter production “with minimal changes” image

Looks like Bentley, the British automaker has received over 2000 expressions of interest in a production version of its EXP 9 F SUV.

Autocar reports that Bentley presented the case to the Volkswagen Group board last week about progressing the project beyond the concept stage. According to the same source, Bentley said the front and rear end styling would need to be modified should it make production as production – but the interior is likely to carry over with minimal changes.

Last weekend, the thinly disguised concept made its maiden appearance on UK soil at the 2012 Goodwood Festival of Speed as part of what the company’s calls “a systematic and comprehensive process of gauging customer and public reaction to the idea of a Bentley SUV”.

Full specs and prices are yet to be announced, but if Bentley want it to be the fastest big SUV in town it’ll need some serious grunt; in the region of 700bhp. Gulp!
