Rendering – Bentley’s entry level four door coupe rendered

Posted on: Oct 4, 2013 - 12:38am IST

CAR magazine recently revealed a scintillating story about a future four door coupe from Bentley to rival the likes of the BMW M6 Gran Coupe and the Mercedes CLS63 AMG. This new revelation sent the internet into a tizzy and countless renderings have emerged of what a four door coupe from Bentley could look like.

The four door coupe, if green-lit, would arrive only after the EXP 9F is introduced. This would be sometime in 2018.

The one that might be closest to real deal is the one that is presented by our good friend from Malaysia – Theophilus Chin. Using the Continental GT as the base, the artist has created a sub-five meter long, four-door coupe with wide hips and a sloping roofline.

Bentley will build the four door coupe on the same rear/all-wheel-drive MSB platform which is currently being developed for the next-generation Porsche Panamera. Initially, the plan was to base it on the Audi’s new front/all-wheel-drive D5 platform. However, the MSB platform seems to be a better fit for the brand-wide application.

As the MSB platform allows the usage of ultra-lightweight composite materials, the new coupe will be 450kg lighter than the Continental GT. The platform will also help designers to give a distinct characteristic to the design because it allows them to pull the front axle forward by well over 100mm, unlocking the design potential.

The four door coupe would be a competitor to performance variants of the BMW 6 Series and the Mercedes CLS Class.

Expected to hit showrooms sometime in 2018, this smallest Bentley will be a RWD. Powered by a Porsche-developed 3.0-litre V6 and a new 4.0-litre V8, the engines will feature turbo technology and cylinder deactivation for a combination of performance and fuel efficiency.

Bentley is expected to manufacture 5,000-6,000 units of this coupe each year from the Crewe factory. The price tag is expected to be in the range of €125k to €150k (1.24 crore to 1.49 crore rupees)

    This model will be very important for Bentley to gain share in the entry level segment. This is a good move by Bentley as its parent group company Audi also offers the A7 as four door coupe. Bentley must now seriously consider diesel engines along with V6 engines. Looking at this I think so Rolls Royce will also follow the suit. Talking about India,If the Government allows Free Trade Agreement with EU this car can be priced well under Rs. 1 crore as Bentley considers India a important market. During the launch of the Flying Spur, the company said it is highly disappointed with the taxation policy of the Government on CBU models.

They say sooner or later your passion finds you. Sometime in late 2009, I started writing for IAB and ever since then it has been a roller coaster ride for me. An amazing experience that has taught me a lot, taken me to new places, driven some great cars and met some amazing people. When you don't find me on IAB (very rarely), you will find me either at a coffee shop or an eatery or at the nearest gadget store.Hope you enjoy IAB as much as we do!
