Bentley Bacalar Fully Revealed

Bentley Bacalar 1

Bentley Mulliner has revealed its new Bacalar - a striking limited edition convertible GT.

There'll be just 12 of these Bentley Mulliner Bacalars built and it will be the rarest 2-door Bentley of the modern era. The name comes from a Mexican lake known for its natural beauty. 

Bentley Mulliner is the world's oldest coachbuilder - they've been around since the 1500s, and the focus here is rarity, exclusivity and supreme luxury. The Bacalar's reveal coincides with Mulliner's new strategy which sees the creation of 3 portfolios: Classic, Collections and Coachbuilt. 

Under that bold bonnet is the 6.0-litre W12 TSI motor with 485 kW and 900 Nm. Bentley claims its the most advanced 12-cylinder engine in the world and power goes to an advanced all-wheel-drive system. The cabin is made from luxury trim, some of which Bentley claims comes from ethical sources. 

All Bentley Bacalars have been allocated to customers from around the world, so sadly there won't be any for sale and each model is hand-built at Bentley's factory, which is the first certified carbon neutral plant for luxury car manufacturing. Price? Estimates suggest £1.5 million, which comes to about R30 million.
