Bentley’s futuristic concept car from last year, the EXP 100 GT, has won the ‘Most Beautiful Concept Car of the Year’ award at the annual Festival Automobile International in France.
Made from lightweight aluminium and carbon-fibre, and measuring 5.8 metres long and almost 2.4 metres wide, the all-electric design study was created to explore how a luxury GT might look like in the year 2035.
Reportedly designed from the ‘inside out’, the vehicle’s cabin set a new benchmark for luxury interiors, featuring, for example, 5,000-year-old copper infused riverwood, a 100% organic leather-like textile, and British-farmed wool carpets, while tech elements included transparent OLED information displays in the doors as well as biometrics to track eye and head movements, and even blood pressure.
“The EXP 100 GT is more than a concept car, it is a vision for the future of sustainable luxury mobility. It offers an inspiring blend of performance, technology and craftsmanship, while at the same time presenting a beautiful, immersive and emotionally intelligent experience,” says Bentley design boss, Stefan Sielaff, who you can see in the video below at the car’s official unveiling last July, when the British brand was busy celebrating its 100th birthday.
