The Very Exclusive Bentley Mulliner Bacalar Roars to Life

Bentley Mulliner revealed their all-new Bacalar two-seater featuring an enhanced version of the 6.0-litre W12 engine.

  • The Bacalar marks the return of Bentley Mulliner;
  • The Bentley Mulliner Bacalar will be powered by an enhanced version of the 6.0-litre W12 engine;
  • Only 12 copies will be made by the coachbuilding company.

This is one of the cars that was supposed to be the highlight of the Geneva Motor Show 2020, which was unfortunately cancelled last week. Nevertheless, Bentley delivered with this epic two-seater called the Bacalar.

Following what the Bentayga started in 2015, naming cars after remarkable landmarks, the Bentley Mulliner Bacalar was named after Laguna Bacalar in Mexico’s Yucatan peninsula.

That being said, the Bacalar is set to become the “most exclusive and bespoke” Bentley built by the Crewe-based company. Not only that, but the very limited model marks the return of personalized coachbuilding for Bentley Mulliner.

The Bentley Mulliner Bacalar is a two-seat Barchetta, an open-topped car, powered by an enhanced version of the famous 6.0-litre W12 TSI engine pushing 650 hp.

As it was announced, and as you can see, the Bacalar features design cues from the EXP 100 GT concept car, which was unveiled last year to celebrate the brand’s 100th anniversary.

Just like the concept is filled with sustainable materials including rice husk ash paint and 5,000-year-old Riverwood. To add to that, the exclusive model is to be produced in the “world’s first certified carbon neutral factory for luxury car production”, said the company in a statement.

To further personalize the Bacalar, Bentley teamed up with Schedoni to create an optional luggage set, which is made to fit perfectly in the two luggage ‘pods’.

Only 12 Bentley Mulliner Bacalar will be built and each one of them will feature a clock face with a one-of-12 badge.
