The new Bentley Bacalar is two-seater speedster with no roof, yes, no roof, still interested then please read on. Only twelve will be built and all of them have already been sold. The Bacalar is a coach-built car by Mulliner that build these special bodies on Bentley’s platforms. The Bacalar only shares one part from the new Bentley Continental GT, the door handles, the rest is all new. The special headlights with LED running lights that wrap around the sides, the new front bumper with more air vents. The bonnet also gets some aggressive vents, along with the vents on the front guards. New twenty-inch diamond cut wheels, that are very sculptured in design. The body is made up of a mix of aluminium & carbon panels with some bronze trim along the tops of the doors, that flows to the rear cowls. The rear lights are special LED types with a floating Bentley badge in bronze.
The Bacalar is powered by a six-litre twin turbo W12 engine that produces 650hp with a top speed of 322km/h an eight-speed twin clutch gearbox and air suspension like the Continental GT are standard.
The interior is a typical Bentley special place to be, with 5000 year old river wood trim, brass trim, leather trimmed seats and door cards, diamond quilting and stitching are used throughout and where the rear seats would normally be are some semi enclosed luggage compartments that are divided by the centre console. Remember this car has no roof as it’s a speedster with the twin cowls behind the twin luggage compartments.
With all twelve sold, will we see any on the road or will they sit in some one’s showroom as part of a collection?
