This could be Bentley's next sports car. Except it isn't, at least officially.

Instead, the car before you is Bentley's EXP 12 Speed 6e concept, a statement designed to capture the attention of enthusiasts at the 2017 Geneva motor show.

While it's not ready for production, Bentley says the concept showcases the future of its interior and exterior design direction - which means you can expect its styling to feature on the next Continental coupe and convertible.

The classically handsome roadster features smooth lines and elegant proportions, along with exquisite details that blend classic and modern elements with a range of materials including copper and rich red leather.

The two-seat vision for the future could point to a more compact, engaging sports car to rival the likes of Porsche's 911.

But what we know for sure is is that this car is an expression of Bentley's electric intent. The concept promises inductive charging, a useful range and stirring performance likely to come from hardware shared with Volkswagen Group products such as Porsche's upcoming Mission E Tesla fighter.

Bentley chair Wolfgang Dürheimer says the brand wants to hear from customers about the potential for an electric sports car.

"The EXP 12 Speed 6e is a concept to show that Bentley is defining electric motoring in the luxury sector, with the appropriate technology, high quality materials and refinement levels you'd expect from a true Bentley. This concept enables us to engage with luxury customers and gather feedback on our approach," he said.

"Bentley is committed to offering an electric model in its future portfolio and we are interested to receive feedback on this concept."
