British luxury car maker Bentley has launched its most exclusive and expensive new car Bacalar, named after the natural, spectacularly blue lake in Mexico’s Yucatan peninsula, is said to be the British brand’s rarest two-door car in the modern era. The car comes outfitted with a massively powerful 12-cylinder engine and features not found on other Bentleys, all for a reported price of about $2 million.
Just 12 examples of this striking, limited edition model are being created, guaranteeing rarity and exclusivity have already been allocated to customers from around the world and will be handcrafted in Bentley Mulliner’s workshop in Crewe.
Powered by an enhanced and mighty 6.0-litre W12. The most advanced 12-cylinder engine in the world, it produces 659 PS (650 bhp) and 900 Nm (667 lb.ft) of torque. An advanced Active All-Wheel-Drive System varies the torque split between front and rear wheels. It allows the Bacalar to use rear-wheel drive as much as possible during normal driving for optimum efficiency and dynamic performance. The drivetrain is at the heart of the Bacalar, creating the ultimate open-air, two-seat luxury Grand Tourer available in the world today.
This is the company’s second two-seater since 1930 and is jammed with everything expected from a 21st century Grand Tourer. In terms of special features, the Bacalar’s dashboard is made from Riverwood a rare wood that’s been preserved in bogs, lakes, and rivers for 5,000 years. The wood has been air-dried in a controlled environment over a long period of time to prevent damage and conserve its unique, natural characteristics’. Each car also features a unique clock face badged with the car’s individual number from the 12 produced, and each seat features a quilted pattern that requires close to 150,000 stitches. Each Bacalar will be hand built according to specifications from its buyer.
Production of the Bacalar is limited to just 12 units and all of them have already been spoken for. Discover Opulent Club on Apple News.
