(PRESS RELEASE) PARIS, 30-Jan-2020 — /EuropaWire/ — Bentley Motors proudly begins the year after receiving special recognition for its futuristic centenary concept car, the Bentley EXP 100 GT, at the prestigious French Festival Automobile International event.

In the 35th annual event of the Festival Automobile International, Bentley EXP 100 GT was recognised as the ‘Most Beautiful Concept Car of the Year’. The event is widely known as the ‘Automotive Fashion Week’ which takes place annually in Paris.

The concept car will be on display at the UNESCO world heritage site in the Hotel des Invalides in Paris, France, that will be accessible to the public.

Stefan Sielaff, Director of Design at Bentley Motors, said, “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. We are delighted to receive such special recognition at what is a very prestigious and admired festival.”

Bentley EXP 100 GT was chosen unanimously by a jury consisting of the most prominent ambassadors of the design world. The concept car displays a ‘future vision of luxury, balanced with sustainability.’

The concept car is incorporated with Artificial Intelligence (AI) as a mean to reassert the car as a place for creating, experiencing and capturing extraordinary human experiences and emotions. Bentley EXP 100 GT is designed according to its customer needs.

Bentley EXP 100 GT redefines the Grand Tourer for the world of 2035 by integrating an all-electric platform. The cars’ exterior and presence resembled the other Bentley’s historic Grand Tourer at the same time giving a futuristic and luxurious hallmark impression.

With the combination of scrupulously designed cabin and an integrated AI, known as Bentley Personal Assistant, this helps passengers capture their Grand Tour experiences.

The concept car is engineered in sustainable innovation to create a greater awareness of the world outside. The materials used to create the concept car includes 5,000-year-old Copper Infused Riverwood, Compass exterior paint made from recycled rice husks, 100 percent organic leather-like textile from wine making and British Farmed Wool carpets and embroidered cotton interior surfaces. This, therefore, gives a futuristic and luxurious impression of the car.

Its headquarters is located in Crewe, England where all of its operations such as design, research and development, engineering and production is made. Bentley employs around 4,000 people at Crewe.
