Bentley aims for the one percenters
The Geneva Motor Show is happening soon and every car maker is in full-tease mode, dropping hints as to what they will be unveiling.
Bentley has signalled its intent to offer a super high-end model, called the Mulliner Bacalar to its most discerning clientele. The Brit hasn’t revealed much about it, only that it intends to ‘reveal the future of coachbuilding’ with the unveiling of the car. It will be ‘exquisitely hand-built by Bentley Mulliner’, the bespoke, made-to-order division of Bentley, and the Bacalar will ‘represent Grand Touring at its most exhilarating’. Balancing the excess, the firm reckons it will feature ‘sustainable and ethically sourced materials’, while styling will be inspired by Bentley’s centenary concept car, the EXP 100 GT.
Those in the know point to the car being an open-top GT, handbuilt in strictly limited numbers while the list of personalisation options would be endless. Expect prospective buyers to be the sorts who have endless reserves. All will be revealed on the 3rd of March, unless it leaks on the internet before its reveal proper.
