We had been waiting patiently for this one and now can't stop drooling because the highly anticipated Bentley Bacalar is a serious head turner! The all-new model is the rarest two-door Bentley of the modern era, and the ultimate expression of two-seat, open-air luxury. This definitive Grand Tourer spearheads a return to coachbuilding by Bentley Mulliner - the oldest coachbuilder in the world.
Just 12 examples of this striking, limited edition model are being created with each model handcrafted in Bentley Mulliner's workshop in Crewe. It costs around $2 million but if you want one, sorry, you're too late - they have all already been sold!
Named after Laguna Bacalar in Mexico's Yucatan peninsula (and continuing Bentley's strategy of naming cars after remarkable landmarks which started with Bentayga in 2015) it was brought to life by Bentley Mulliner, reviving its specialism in providing rare coach-built cars to only a few discerning customers.
Its core underbody structure is the same as that of the Continental GT convertible, and the two cars share an identical wheelbase. But Bentley’s design team has been able to make nearly total changes to the exterior appearance.
The concept’s trim includes natural British wool, hand-stitched materials, and trim paneling formed from 5,000-year-old petrified wood from the East Anglia region of England!
It has a 6.0-litre W12 turbocharged engine delivering 650 horsepower and is mated to an eight-speed twin-clutch transmission and all-wheel drive, as well as a 48-volt electric anti-roll system.
