Thoughts About The Bentley EXP 100 GT Concept

We think most would agree that while the car looks like a Bentley, it feels like something is missing. It could be the extra large grille and the headlight assembly at the front. The rest of the car though, looks really great. We doubt Bentley will commercial manufacture this particular vehicle. At best, maybe a limited edition. Keep your check books ready peeps!
