Bentley is finalizing the production of 12 copies of the Bacalar, an exclusive convertible signed Mulliner, which will soon unveil its new project.
Mullinerthe personalization department of the Crewe-based manufacturer, unveiled two years ago the Bentley Chimneys : a two-seater convertible inspired by the Bentley EXP 100 GT concept car, and technically derived from the Continental GTC: however, all the body parts are new, and made exclusively by Mulliner for this exclusive model.
A particularly rare model therefore, since it is limited to only 12 copies : their production is now about to end. Already eight examples have been delivered to their respective owners, while the last four are currently being finished in the Bentley workshops, before leaving for delivery.
Bentley Mulliner Bacalar: 12 unique models
Each copy of the Bentley Bacalar is unique: the 12 vehicles are distinguished by their bespoke body color, as well as an interior livery carefully configured by their customers. Each model required the equivalent of approximately six months of work.
“Designing a Bacalar is an exercise in the imagination, with bespoke materials, colors and finishes on virtually every interior and exterior surface. Whatever your personal style, whether to spec your Bacalar with a bold Yellow Flame exterior color done with rice husk ash, or a more subtle Moss Green that pays homage to Bentley heritage, develop your own artisanal piping or co-creating a unique fabric, the Bacalar offers you all these opportunities »says Maria Mulder, color, materials and finishes manager at Bentley.
Progress by definition means pushing boundaries, never reaching a finishing line. With the 12 Bacalars now nearing completion, the #Mulliner team is starting to focus attention on their next project, which will be revealed soon. pic.twitter.com/1224bmgXqP
