It has been revealed that Bentley is working on a new sports car, rumoured to be arriving in 2019. The Barnato name, which the brand trademarked, is said to be the cars official name.
If you’re a fan of sports cars, you’re going to be happy to know that Bentley is working on its next vehicle. Known for the level of luxury and attention to details, the brand is very well established on the market.
Although, much hasn’t been revealed about the new car, it’s reportedly going to be based on the Bentley EXP 10 Speed 6 concept.
Unveiled at the 2015 Geneva Motor Show, the vehicle showcased some new technologies that the brand revealed to be making an appearance on a future model.
It is not clear at the moment, whether the production version will look exactly the same; however, we can likely expect the new Barnato to closely mimic the appearance of the concept.
It’s always exciting when a concept goes into production. A great number of concept never make it to production, much to the disappointment of their fans.
The Barnato name was inspired by Woolf Barnato, the three-time winner of the Le Mans 24 Hours.
We can definitely expect the new model to be quite powerful and fast. At least that’s what the name suggests.
Again, much isn’t known about the powertrain at the moment; however some are speculating that there could be a hybrid variant.
Taking into consideration the price of the Bentley Continental GT, which the new vehicle will sit alongside of, we can probably expect its price to be around £130,000.
It’s definitely not going to be cheap, considering how exclusive and luxurious Bentley models are. It’s an upscale brand that isn’t for everyone.
More information will likely become available in the near future, so we’ll keep you updated as the story develops.
