Green is the New Fast: Bentley’s New SUV is a V6

Bentley’s latest new platform, the 9F SUV shown earlier this has met with … I think “mixed is the polite way of saying that hated it, right? Anyway, hated it, and Bentley’s hoping give it a second chance by of it as “slow and green” instead of and expensive”.

DO you see the problem Bentley has?

The of course, is that Bentleys are to be fast, bespoke examples of English craftsmanship and thundering horsepower that hearken to the glory days of Walter O. and the racers of the 1920s and 30s. the company was bought out by Nazi builders a few years ago and the latest Continental has more in common a Volkswagen Phaeton than it with the classic Turbo R, but people have never heard of a Volkswagen Phaeton model on which the Conti was so where’s the harm in Bentley dumpster-diving behind the VW factory for its as well?

The harm, of course, is that the 9F SUV that Bentley trotted out stinks of “people’s car”. a Touareg under the skin, of no matter how much Bentley rather you think “Audi Q7″ or Cayenne” when you consider the lineage, it’s the Volkswagen (I think) that’s most

To their credit, the Bentley are trying to turn the buzz the 9F around the same way the Bugatti did when their corporate at VW started counting beans: downplayed the go-fast, and started up the go-green.

According to Wolfgang Dürheimer and CEO of Bentley Motors), “Everyone (at seems to agree that an SUV is a fit for Bentley. An exciting range of options including a hybrid V6 are active consideration.”

Unfortunately for the internets haz memories: a year when the big Bentley was first talked up and drawings of the thing being shopped around to Saudi princes. there was an lack of green tech surrounding the 3 ton SUV. Auspicious in fact, to have me questioning my whole “green is the new fast” was (gasp!) wrong.

It’s not.

I’m not.

All is with the world.

If your can take it, feel free to out a new gallery of Bentley SUV images, “Enjoy.”
