The Bentley SUV is going to look much, much better than the hideous EXP-9 concept that the company unveiled to an horrified audience last year. Along with this new, prettier design comes a rather important technical detail.

The Bentley SUV will be able to break 200 mph. Thanks to a lower roof-line and a more slippery shape, as well as some aero effects on the underbody, the new Bentley luxo-brick is going to be faster outright than anything Maserati makes. Better yet, the car's off-road ability is, apparently, being considered. This means that it will be a real SUV, and not just some soulless way to cash in on a market trend.
