Bentley Mulliner has revealed the all new Bacalar at the home of Bentley in Crewe, England.

With only 12 examples of the Bacalar being made, it will be the rarest two-door Bentley of the modern era
The rarest two-door Bentley of the modern era and the ultimate expression of two-seat, open-air luxury, the definitive grand tourer spearheads a return to coachbuilding by Bentley Mulliner - the oldest coachbuilder in the world.

With the Bacalar, customers will again have the ability to work closely with a team of specialist designers to enhance their vehicle with a selection of unique materials and specially curated options.

The Bacalar will be the first, but other new bespoke Bentleys will follow as part of the Bentley Mulliner Coachbuilt portfolio, one of three new divisions of the Bentley Mulliner organisation.

Just 12 examples of this striking, limited edition Bacalar are being created, guaranteeing rarity and exclusivity, and offering supreme luxury and breath-taking performance.

Rare, 5,000-year old Riverwood is used to form the wraparound dashboard in the cabin
Pure in line and execution, the distinctive, wraparound cockpit flows from a new, steeply angled centre console seamlessly into the dashboard and doors. These then wrap rearwards towards the semi-enclosed luggage compartment behind the two seats.

Sustainable, ethically-sourced materials previewed in the EXP 100 GT concept car have now become reality in the Bacalar just eight months after first being previewed.

These include paint containing ash from rice husks, which provides a sustainable way of delivering a rich metallic finish, as well as the use of natural British wool and 5,000-year old Riverwood sourced from the ancient Fenlands of East Anglia.

The rare Riverwood forms the wraparound dashboard and the focal point of the cabin.

The Bacalar features an enhanced version of Bentley's peerless 6.0-litre, twin-turbocharged W12 TSI engine. The most advanced 12-cylinder engine in the world, it produces 650bhp and 900Nm of torque.

An advanced active all-wheel drive system varies the torque split between front and rear wheels. It allows the Bacalar to use rear-wheel drive as much as possible during normal driving for optimum efficiency and dynamic performance.

All examples of the exquisite Bentley Mulliner Bacalar have already been allocated to customers from around the world.
