Bentley SUV Review, Price and Specs – Here are the first official images of the SUV that Bentley will unveil at the Geneva Motor Show later this week. The company has named it the EXP 9 F and says it will come standard with a 6.0-litre twin-turbocharged W12 engine. A 4.0 litre twin-turbocharged V8 and a hybrid drivetrain option on the 8-speed AWD vehicle are possibilities as well. Bentley says the W12 engine could produce 600bhp and 800 Nm of torque with a top speed and 0-60mph time faster than any SUV on the market today.

Design elements include Bentley’s signature matrix grille, round lamps and strong power-line throughout the side of the car. New to the vehicle would be jet-inspired elliptical twin exhaust tailpipes, 23-inch alloy wheels and a two-part split tailgate. (An awning extends over the tailgate to protect those seated underneath, since the door can double as a picnic table.)

The usual handcrafted elements–wood, leather, aluminium, bronze and gunmetal–will be featured inside the car. Designers in Crewe, England, have also apparently been experimenting with saddle leather to outfit the cabin interior.

In a fitting touch for British motoring, the seats will feature a diamond-quilted leather shoulder line that resembles the quilted pattern on a British hunting jacket. The floormats are a wool-silk blend.

Seating will be 4+1 with a rear armrest lifting to reveal a cooled compartment for champagne and glasses. Other creature comforts in the new ride will include two umbrellas and a bespoke picnic hamper that all fit into either side of the rear luggage area.

Platform : The Bentley will ride on a stretched and modified version of the next VW Touareg and Porsche Cayenne platform.

Powertrain : Engines will be shared with the Continental GT, so bank on a twin-turbo W-12 and a 4.0-liter twin-turbo V-8. An eight-speed dual-clutch automatic will connect to an all-wheel-drive system.

Competition : None, unless you count a sedan chair.

What Might Go Wrong: A European financial crisis, a slumping U.S. economy, political unrest in the Middle East, and possible Chinese restrictions on large sport-utilities may keep the Bentley CUV from flying off of showroom floors.

Estimated Arrival and Price: Expect to see it in late 2014 as a 2015 model, at a price of about $200,000.
