Bentley's in-house bespoke and personal commissioning division - Bentley Mulliner - is showcasing its new three-strong portfolio at this year's Salon Prive.

23 Sep 2020 | International News : U.K.


Bentley Mulliner is showcasing its new three-car portfolio at this year's Salon Prive, with global debuts of the new coachbuilt Bentley Bacalar and the new Continental GT Mulliner coupe, alongside a sneak preview of the partly restored 1929 4.5-litre supercharged 'Blower' Team Car.

For many enthusiasts, the imposing 'Blower' Bentley is the iconic racing Bentley of the pre-war years, forever linked with the image of its driver, the dashing Bentley Boy, Sir Henry Birkin.

To deliver this incredible Continuation Series - the first in history of a pre-war car - Bentley's own Team Car was stripped to its individual components ahead of a sympathetic mechanical restoration.

With the engineering prototype for the Continuation Series now in build, the restoration of the Team Car is almost finished. The car has been mechanically recommissioned with worn or damaged parts repaired or replaced, and the chassis and running gear have been given an extremely deep clean.

The remaining work is to the ash-framed body, which requires some overly-worn areas to be restored. This work is due to be completed before Christmas.

The Bentley Mulliner Bacalar - the rarest two-door Bentley of the modern era, and the ultimate expression of two-seat, open-air luxury - is also making its public debut at Salon Prive. Just 12 examples of this striking, limited edition model are being created, guaranteeing rarity and exclusivity, and offering supreme luxury and breath-taking performance.

The third branch of the business - Bentley Mulliner Collections - will continue to offer customers pinnacle luxury derivatives of the core Bentley range, such as the new Continental GT Mulliner Coupe, as well as the opportunity to personalise their new Bentley.

The Continental GT Mulliner Coupe includes a suite of exclusive exterior design features. The car sits on new and unique 22-inch Mulliner wheels, with a bespoke design of elegant beauty in a painted and polished finish. The centre badge of each wheel is self-levelling, keeping the iconic Bentley 'B' upright at all times.

The cabin of the Continental GT Mulliner is one defined by luxury, and showcases a level of choice and customisation that only Mulliner can provide. A unique colour split is exclusive to the car, with a new combination of primary and secondary hide joined by a third colour through a flowing design line.
