Just 12 purchasers of the sleek looking ‘Bacalar’ will no doubt be looking forward to the day when all this lockdown is over and they will be able to enjoy open top motoring in this very exclusive bespoke model from Bentley.
As the first product in Bentley Mulliner’s new Coachbuilt portfolio, the new Bacalar affords its 12 customers even greater opportunity to express their personal tastes in the form of the ultimate open-air Grand Tourer. While work on the new car is paused until Bentley’s Crewe headquarters reopens, the process of developing the unique, bespoke specification of each example can begin.
Sharing not one exterior body panel with any other Bentley model, the Bacalar is a true statement of master craftsmanship, with ultra-bespoke interior finishes being limited only by the imagination of customers.
To showcase a variety of possible themes and options, Bentley Mulliner has created six example Bacalar specifications, illustrating some of the characters and styles the Bacalar is able to represent.
These include “The Clerkenwell” (pictured above) in green (typifying the spirit of the Brooklands racetrack in Weybridge) combining with Cumbrian Green and Golden Oak hides, Dark Bronze Glass exterior brightwear and Cheltenham tweed, “The Fulton” in a deep and evocative exterior finish of Lacquer Red coupled with hides of perforated Mulliner Beluga and Hotspur accents inspired by Downtown Chicago’s Fulton River District, and “The Brickell” with a colour scheme influenced by the financial district of Miami; Atom Silver with Brunel hide alongside the Open Pore Riverwood and Piano Black veneer with Grey Tweed.
Design your own Bacalar’ competition
Bentley is also launching a design-your-own Bacalar competition via the @BentleyComms Twitter channel. Both adults and children are invited to download a blank template of both the Bacalar’s exterior and interior, which can be customised in any number of ways. The best designs sent back to @BentleyComms will be adjudicated by Bentley’s Design team, and featured and highlighted on the channel.
