The 100 GT is the latest in a decades-long family of Bentley EXP concepts, most of which have had considerable relevance to the look and specification of production models that came after them. The new concept also has the fastback and rear haunch of one of Bentley's most famous cars, the R-Type Continental coupé.
"The Bentley EXP 100 GT represents the kind of cars we want to make in the future", says Bentley Design Director Stefan Sielaff. The electric vehicle is completely autonomous and features artificial intelligence known as the Bentley Personal Assistant. Bentley doesn't see that changing in the self-driving future and continues to focus on evolving the ultra-premium experience to keep pace with changing technology and preferences. Positioning itself as far as 2035, the vehicle features both autonomous and self-driven experiences mixing in many sustainable materials and futuristic AI technologies.
Inside, Bentley has set a new benchmark for luxury interiors, with wood, leather, and glass materials seamlessly blended with light from the innovative glass roof, which is embedded with prisms that collect light and transfer it into the cabin using fiber optics, enhancing the wellbeing of occupants. The driver and passenger doors are 2,0 metres wide and pivot outwards and upwards. The seats also work with other biometric sensors to track things like blood pressure and eye and head movements. "Cocoon" mode is much the opposite, cutting off the outdoor environment in favor of privacy by darkening the glass and pumping in purified air.
If and when EXP 100 GT passengers are able pry themselves out of their ultra-cozy pampered cocoon, they'll remember what a gorgeous auto they've been in.Читайте также: Australia call up Matthew Wade and Mitch Marsh as injury cover
One of the main highlights is the illuminated matrix grille and the famous Flying B mascot, which lights up when you approach the auto. There's even a delivery system to fetch things from the front storage trunk and an AI-powered luxury service system that connects to outside service providers. A 3D OLED screen assists the thin wraparound taillights in conveying information through light. The exterior color, for instance, uses synthetic pigments from rice husk ash. The four electric motors make 1,106 lb-ft of torque, which it puts down as efficiently as possible via a torque vectoring system. The range is claimed at 435 miles even though the GT's overall mass is tipped to fall to 1900kg - around 35% lighter than a auto with similar capabilities would weigh today.
The battery electric powertrain comprises of four electric motors with a maximum torque figure of 1,500 Nm, propelling the EXP 100 GT concept from 0-100 km/h in 2.5 seconds and a top speed of 300 km/h, according to Bentley. The active aero wheels adjust between all-out performance and max efficiency, and the Pirelli tires on those wheels auto-adjust contact patch size to meet current driving conditions.
Occupants can interact with the AI assistant either through hand gestures or the front and rear Cumbria Crystal interfaces.При любом использовании материалов сайта и дочерних проектов, гиперссылка на обязательна.
