Review: Gear Pockets

Bentley’s EXP 9F SUV Concept

via West County Explorers Club: Leave it to the English, the inventors of the luxury SUV, to push the limits of that vehicle segment into new, outrageous terrain–understatedly outrageous, that is. Bentley’s new SUV concept, unveiled at the Geneva Motor Show this year, makes a mere Range Rover look positively populist.

It’s called the EXP 9F, which—let’s be honest— doesn’t exactly roll off the tongue. As for the look and feel of it though. That’s another story.

Camel Trophy, The Land Rover Years

In all of the other years the Discovery features prominently. You’re probably familiar with a few of these segments. It’s nice to see them all strung together. Enjoy.
