Apparently, the Volkswagen AG company board of directors after all agreed on release of a crossover of \"Bentley\" which promises to become the most expensive serial SUV.
Until recently the Bloomberg agency reported about it, referring to own anonymous source in the concern management, however now this information is confirmed officially. As appears from the statement of the management of Bentley, a novelty will begin to assemble in England, in sale it will arrive in 2016 and becomes the most powerful SUV in the market. And, apparently, also the most expensive: according to some information, the estimated cost of a crossover will make 180 000 euros.
However, illusions concerning its price were discredited more than a year ago when British declared that before preparing model for release, prepare to study possible demand, as though having casually mentioned that this car will appear almost the most expensive in a ruler.
Then it became clear that potential buyers apprehended an initiative positively, and the company began to prepare for start.
Apparently, the car will be constructed on the Porsche Cayenne and Audi Q7 platform. Stylistically she will repeat the concept of EXP 9 F presented on Geneva the motor show in the spring of 2012. However designers brought the mass of changes in the concept so to hope for emergence of the exact copy of a pilot model after all isn\'t necessary.
As expected, at a novelty will put the V12 engine of 6 liters issuing to 610 h.p., working with 8-step automatic shift. Besides, release also hybrid version is planned. Here on the name in Bentley, seemingly, yet didn\'t decide. Earlier it was reported that SUV will bear the name Falcon, however the rights to it as it appeared, belong to the Australian compartment of Ford.
It should be noted also that the serial EXP 9 F version by the time of the emergence any more won\'t be the only very expensive SUV. Approximately in a year the similar car plans to exhaust Maserati, works on the similar project were declared earlier also by the Lamborghini brand, last year representing conceptual Urus on all significant markets, however it will go to a series not earlier than 2017.
