New Bentley Mulliner Bacalar due for Geneva launch

Bentley’s in-house customisation arm will soon launch its latest limited edition project – a two-seat grand tourer called the Bacalar

Bentley’s in-house customisation arm, Mulliner, will launch a limited-edition two-seat grand tourer at the 2020 Geneva Motor Show. Called the Bacalar, it will be positioned as a new halo model for the Bentley brand, which the company says will be “offered for purchase to only a very few.”

These latest teaser images preview the Bacalar’s cabin, which will adopt a two-seat layout, a wrap-around cockpit design and a large luggage compartment behind the seats. Bentley has also confirmed that each buyer will receive a pair of unique travel cases, trimmed in the same material as their car’s interior.

Bentley has hinted that the exterior design of the Bacalar will draw heavy inspiration from the EXP 100 GT concept, which was revealed last summer. While that was a car created merely to celebrate the brand’s centenary using an all-electric drivetrain, the Bacalar will be a production car offered only to Bentley’s most prospective customers – and it’s almost certain that it will be powered by the firm’s trademark twelve-cylinder engine.

As such, it’s not impossible to imagine the Bacalar being a Mulliner coachbuilt variant of the latest Continental GT. However, Bentley’s teaser campaign makes it difficult to confirm this – the brand’s official video only showed the car’s dramatic rear end, while our previous teaser image shows only a single diamond cut wheel.
