Bentley Mulliner has revealed the all-new Bacalar*. 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, guaranteeing rarity, and exclusivity, and offering supreme luxury and breath-taking performance.
Bacalar, the most exclusive two-door Bentley of the modern era, launches a new Bentley Mulliner operation, and forms part of a new strategy for the world’s oldest coachbuilder. With an illustrious coachbuilding history, which can be traced back to the 1500s, Mulliner will, from 2020, offer three different portfolios to customers: Classic, Collections and Coachbuilt.
BACALAR – A DYNAMICALLY-SCULPTED DESIGN FOR THE FUTURE
The Bacalar draws on design DNA from the beautifully sculpted, award-winning EXP 100 GT, and propels Bentley into a new century of extraordinary, as the most dynamically sculpted model from Bentley’s designers to date. A genuine ‘roofless’ Barchetta, Bacalar is a luxurious, two-seat, open-air performance car, the likes of which has never been seen before.
A UNIQUE WRAPAROUND COCKPIT
Inside Bacalar’s cabin, Bentley craftspeople have created a cockpit like no other. The architecture of the Bacalar has allowed Bentley Mulliner designers to create a “wraparound” cockpit design that not only blends the interior and exterior together but also emphasizes the two-seater character. The wraparound design flows from a steeply angled centre console into the dashboard, before sweeping into the door panels. These then continue towards a uniquely styled, semienclosed luggage compartment behind the seats. These two luggage “pods” envelope the seats, creating a true two-seater cabin.
AN ADVANCED DASHBOARD
At the heart of Bacalar’s dashboard is an advanced, fully digital, driver-focused instrument panel and the now famous Bentley Rotating Display. This digital MMI display has been elegantly designed by Bentley with a customer-configurable home screen. For Bacalar, the Rotating Display features rare Riverwood veneer, a material first introduced in the EXP 100 GT concept, which rotates when the engine is started to reveal the high-resolution touchscreen. The Bentley Mulliner Bacalar is not available to buy: however, you can create your own Bentley with Mulliner, with the support of the creative experts.
