Bentley Boys S3 design study

Bentley Boys S3 design study

This ominous, retro-inspired design study is the creation of automotive engineer Arturo Alonso from Bentley Boys USA and is tipped to enter production if it receives enough interest. Alonso and his team are planning to build just three cars, each at a cost of $150,000, at a the painstakingly slow rate of just one every eight months and plans to promote them to possible buyers in cities like Dubai, New York and Moscow.

The car is styled after the original Bentley S3 from the 1960s and includes the same four-headlamp layout design, vertical grille and a V8 powertrain. In this case the powerplant is a BMW-sourced 4.4L unit with close to 300hp and driving the rear wheels via a five-speed ZF automatic transmission.

Although the complete mechanical package hasn’t been confirmed, designers hope to use the original S3 body and chassis. The cars also get a dual air conditioning system, leather and suede trim, a stainless steel exhaust system and 20in forged wheels wrapped with 275mm Continental Sport tires.
