Bentley Mulliner released a second teaser image of the upcoming Bacalar, the latest coachbuilt creation of the company’s specialist division.
At the time, Bentley teased us with a closeup of the diamond cut wheel design but details about the mystery grand tourer were scarce.
That is all Bentley is willing to reveal for the time being, but the wraparound design of the cabin appears to take after the spectacular EXP 100 GT unveiled in August 2019. The British luxury marque previously said the hand-built Bacalar would take after the polarizing concept, and now we’re beginning to see the resemblances.
Although yet to be confirmed, the new ultra-exclusive project from Mulliner is said to take the shape of a convertible whereas the aforementioned EXP 100 GT was a coupe with a pair of fascinating gullwing doors.
Power will most likely come from the trademark 6.0-liter W12 twin-turbo engine, which in the case of the Continental GT produces 626 HP. The new Bacalar will be Mulliner’s first true coachbuilt vehicle since 2002 and the State Limousine built for Queen Elizabeth in the UK.
The Bentley Mulliner Bacalar will adopt a two-seat layout, making it only the second two-seat Bentley made since 1930. Combined with a wraparound cockpit, the two-seat layout creates a luggage space behind the exquisitely stitched front seats, which comes with a bespoke pair of travel cases with trim that matches the interior materials. Speaking of which, the Bacalar’s hand-crafted material will feature “sustainably sourced” materials.
Bentley will be revealing its new Mulliner Bacalar on March 3 at the Geneva Motor Show.
