It's vaguely OK looking. It's a bit derivative as boat-tail concepts go. Mercedes did one. Hyundai did one. It's not really relevant in any way to Bentley But the face suggests that someone inside the company thinks that the Bentiguan is good looking. That face is terrible. Parenthetically, I cannot help but think how lovely the AeroVette concept still looks, speaking of boat tails.

I'm seeing more Audi Prologue in the profile than I would like, but I'm sure it has a nice stance in person.

I don't know if it is just me, but the hood looks too short compared to the rest of the car, i.e. cab forward derivative? The base of the windshield and the cabin should be pushed back more, balancing out the proportions.

I agree, derivative (dare I say a bit Germanic, given here were Mercedes and Audi concepts with similar design), and the front end is horrendous Other than the front, it's not horrible or bad, just, bit too derivative for a luxury car from a famous brand like Bentley, and also lacking the stately appearance of a Rolls Royce..

All I can say is hot and stunning, and it even surpassed my expectations! I hope that this truly has an influence on upcoming models, perhaps an next Mulsanne, or even a 4-door coupe entry, which has been brought up in past reports. Recent reports stated that if anything, Bentley would go larger, as this concept is, and (not to go off-topic), Maserati recently stated something similar. This not only give hope for Bentley, but also for EVs, and for the top-tier, and could even have influence on competitors.

Mercedes is rolling on the floor laughing at this disaster.

Agreed. What I also see is that if you'd remove the headlights and imagine something more swept back in its place, the front could be anything from a new Nissan GT-R to a Lexus or even Jaguar with some minor tweaks.

Otherwise, I like it very much, but then I'm a sucker for exaggerated proportions.
