Prospective Bentley designers have shown off their vision for a future how a future Bentley should look.
Four of London’s Royal College of Art (RCA) Vehicle Design Course masters students have been shortlisted from 18 entrants in the Bentleys of the Future competition being run in conjunction with the Crewe-based company.
Two of the four entrants will win a six-month secondment at Bentley’s design studio working under head of exterior design Raul Pires.
Pires has already helped the students refine their designs and extensive aerodynamic work on the student’s concepts has taken place in a virtual wind tunnel.
Dale Harrow, head of the RCA, said: “Working with Bentley has inspired these young designers to create a coupe for the 21st Century that embraces the latest aerodynamics technology.
“The Vehicle Design Course attracts postgraduate students from across the world and it has been fascinating to see them make a connection with a British marque that has such a distinguished heritage.”
