Global recession and gas prices may still be on everyone's mind, but apparently not on Bentley’s. Unveiling at the 2012 Geneva Auto Show, the EXP 9 F SUV concept is the company's way of exploring “new terrain.” (Their words, not mine.) Of course, this being a Bentley, it can't very well stoop to using twin-turbo V8s like the proletariat. The Concept features a 6.0L W12 engine that "could" develop 600 hp and 800 Nm... if his eminence so desires.
 
To remind you that this thing has a twin-turbocharged engine, the 23-inch wheels are designed to look like turbines. So are the air intakes around the daytime running lights. And even though the headlights are not much different from those on current production Bentleys, gosh-darn-it, they look kind of turbo-fanny, too.
