To celebrate its centenary this year, Bentley has revealed what it believes to be the future of grand touring, the EXP 100 GT, at a global event at its Crewe headquarters.

Imagined for the year 2035, the auto features sustainable materials including wood sourced from naturally fallen trees, paint made from recycled rice husks, and an organic leather-like textile sourced from wine making.

With a top speed of 300km/h, the EXP 100 GT is quick.

Bentley designs its human-focused concept auto from the inside out, creating an extravagant interior dressed in superlative sustainables, including naturally felled river wood preserved for thousands of years in peat bogs, lakes and rivers.

Upon plunging through the EXP 100 GT's massive butterfly doors, the driver and three passengers succumb to the embrace of individual adaptable, biometric seats. The sensors are scattered throughout the interior to track everything from eye movements to blood pressure so that the vehicle can customize settings to keep you comfortable. Its rear haunches, on the other hand, are reminiscent of the R-Type Continental produced from 1952 to 1955. Enhance, for example, mimics open-air driving by capturing light, sounds, scents, and the air quality from outside. "Enhance" draws input from the outside, "Cocoon" envelops driver and passenger in purified air and opaque glass, "Re-Live" replays highlights of past journeys, and "Customise" combines all four, but is interchangeable based on passenger input. A 3D OLED screen assists the thin wraparound taillights in conveying information through light. The paint uses a special pigment made from rice husk ash, a harmful byproduct of the rice industry, to open up a range of autumnal colors. It has an electric powertrain dubbed Next Generation Traction Drive that uses four 201-335bhp electric motors and an advanced torque vectoring system to distribute a combined output of between 800 and 1340bhp to all four wheels, depending on spec. Bentley says the EXP 100 GT concept can hit 60 miles per hour in 2.5 seconds on the way to a top speed of 186 miles per hour.

The Bentley Personal Assistant is located in the illuminated Cumbria Crystal center piece and control center. The active aero wheels adjust between all-out performance and max efficiency, and the Pirelli tires on those wheels auto-adjust contact patch size to meet current driving conditions. Bentley wants to move the EXP 100 GT - and its future models - well beyond simple A to B travel: cars like this will be for "extraordinary and emotional human experiences".
