The All-New Bacalar Leads The Return To Coachbuilding In The Modern Era


Bentley Mulliner unveiled the all-new Bacalar at the home of Bentley in Crewe, England. Undoubtedly the most exceptional, rarest two-door Bentley of the modern era, this singular, definitive Grand Tourer leads the return to coachbuilding by Bentley Mulliner – the oldest coachbuilder in the world.

Adrian Hallmark, Chairman and Chief Executive of Bentley Motors, elaborates:

“The Bentley Mulliner Bacalar is our ultimate expression of an open-top, luxury grand tourer, and of the immense capabilities of our team in Crewe.

“In Bacalar, we have created a fully bespoke Bentley, orientated towards a two seat open top experience, and carrying a number of the forward thinking elements of future luxury, first heralded in our EXP100GT as part of our Centenary celebrations last year.

“Bacalar is a rare and remarkable Bentley, and whilst clearly defined, will be an extraordinary and collaborative experience for just twelve discerning people who will now co-create, collect, drive and treasure one of twelve being built.

“Our customers are as excited as we are about Bacalar, as it brings our team and discerning enthusiasts together, to create the finest bespoke, hand-built cars, and push the boundaries of our imagination and capabilities.”

Only 12 limited edition models are being created, which guarantees rarity and exclusivity, and affords unprecedented luxury and performance. Here are the notable details about this impeccable release:

  • Bentley Mulliner announces new three-portfolio future: Classic, Collections and Coachbuilt
