Bentley Mulliner Bacalar: super-rare grand tourer teased

Published: 12 February 2020

► Bentley to reveal 'future of coachbuilding'
► Mulliner creation uses sustainable materials
► Limited-run GT car coming to Geneva 2020

Bentley is seemingly going all out with its latest car from its Mulliner division. The Mulliner Bacalar, a new grand tourer teased with the reveal of its name and a wheel, will be at the 2020 Geneva motor show.

Little is known about the new model, but Bentley says it will use ‘sustainable and ethically-sourced materials’ in the Balacar’s construction, pointing to some of those demonstrated by the epic EXP 100 GT concept. That concept had details like paint made from rice husks, recycled copper, 5000-year-old wood from fenlands in Cambridgeshire and bespoke glass details from Cumbria Crystal.

Its design is still under lock and key at Crewe, but the single teaser image of a wheel is accompanied by a short teaser video, showing what looks to be the rear end. It appears to be quite pinched, with a small aerodynamic spoiler topping it off – much like the EXP 100 GT.

The Balacar won’t just be a one-off, too – a very limited number will be able to buy following its Geneva debut. 

Stay tuned for more details when we get them.
