Bentley Mulliner Batur: strongest Bentley ever

Car manufacturers such as Bentley often propose cars to be produced in a small series that share their base with an existing model. In 2020, for example, Bentley introduced the Mulliner Bacalar, of which only 12 copies appeared. Also in 2022, Bentley will put the saw in the Continental for a new model, but this new exclusive Briton plays a bigger role than the Bacalar. Goodbye round headlights. In the first place, Bentley will build 18 of the Mulliner Batur instead of 12, but that does not make the role of the Batur any bigger. However, the Mulliner Batur is a strong hint to how Bentley will design its future models and in particular how its electric cars will dry up in terms of design. What seems? Bentley tosses its decades-used round headlights to the trash. Bentley Mulliner Batur Despite the fact that the Bentley Mulliner Batur serves as a hint to the future of EV design, the car itself is ‘just’ equipped with a twelve-cylinder petrol engine. It concerns the 6.0 W12, which is basically also available in the Continental GT and Flying Spur. In this Batur, however, that machine delivers more power than ever. Where the twelve-cylinder in the most powerful version of the Continental GT kicks up to 659 hp, the block in the Mulliner Batur delivers no less than 740 hp and 1,000 Nm. With that, the Batur will go down in the books as the most powerful Bentley ever. To achieve the power, Bentley has, among other things, adapted the turbos, the intercoolers and the intake path of the powertrain. Shifting is done by an eight-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission and a full titanium exhaust system hangs under the car. Bentley gives the Mulliner Batur the chassis of the Continental GT Speed, provides the car with an active anti-roll stabilization system, an electronic differential lock and a co-steering and counter-steering rear axle. Unlike the Bacalar, the Batus is not named after a body of water in Mexico, but after an 88 meter deep lake in Bali. As mentioned, Bentley’s Mulliner division will only produce 18 units of the Mulliner Batur. They all have a starting price of €1.95 million. Yes, that it excludes local taxes. Unfortunately for those already with the credit card at the ready: all 18 copies have already been sold. The first buyers will have their Mulliner Batur delivered in mid-2023. The first electric Bentley in which you will find design influences from this Batur will be on the market in 2025.
