Bentley has demonstrated what Mulliner is really capable of when it unveiled the limited-edition Bacalar in 2020. Mulliner is Bentley’s in-house coachbuilding division. In fact, the convertible was really well received. Moreover, the British firm is reportedly going to plan a follow-up to celebrate and then send off the W12 engine.
Bentley – Mulliner’s Next Car is a Coupe
Mulliner’s next car is going will arrive as a coupe based on the Continental GT. However, it does not mean that is going to look like the Continental GT. The Bacalar is the evolution of the convertible Continental. However, it does wear a different design. Also, the model is going to allegedly borrow the styling cues from the EXP 100 GT concept. That was introduced by Bentley in 2019.
The next car by Mulliner is going to receive the same 6.0-liter, twin-turbocharged W12 that is going to power the Bacalar. Also, the mighty engine is going to be tuned to be sending roughly 650 horsepower and 667 pound-feet of torque to the four wheels. It would be via an eight-speed automatic transmission. Also, it will go to pelt the coupe from 0-60 mph in well under four seconds. This would be on to a top speed of over 200 mph. In addition, there are many improvements. One includes a firmer suspension system. Plus huge carbon-ceramic brakes. Those features will let the drivers make the most of the W12’s power.
The coupe is going to carry a base of at the minimum of $2 million before the buyers do begin personalizing it. The coupe will be hand-built. The personalization will include almost every visual part of the car. It will include the upholstery and the paint that is going to be customizable. This figure is going to make it the most expensive car Bentley has really ever released. In fact, the report does add production is going to be limited to 25 units. Thus, it wouldn’t be surprising if the full batch is spoken for before the model is unveiled. Plus the Bacalar is going to be only granted as a “show and display” status in America.
