The company also applied the finishing touches to the first Blower Continuation Series car.
It's been nearly a year and a half since the exquisite Bentley Bacalar debuted. Designed by Bentley's Mulliner personalization division, the Bacalar is based on the Continental GT with bespoke styling inspired by the striking EXP 100 GT concept. Production is limited to only 12 examples each costing $1.9 million, and now the first customer car has been completed.
Every example rolling off the production line will be truly bespoke, with unique materials, exterior, and interior colors tailored for each individual customer specification. The first completed Bentley Bacalar is finished in a unique champagne-tinted satin silver called Atom Silver and rides on 22-inch Tri-Finish wheels with polished faces, dark gray satin spokes, and gloss Moss Green accents. The Moss Green accents are also applied to the front grille bar, the insides of the headlamps, and the upper body chrome surround.
The A-pillars, grille meshes and surrounds, hood vents, side vents, lower body, rear bumper insert, and brake calipers also have contrasting gloss black accents. Inside, the black and green theme continues with Beluga leather and Moss Green hide applied throughout the cabin. Other special touches include bronze finishes on the steering wheel and headrest bezels, a satin nickel finish to the clock, and a bespoke luggage set.
In addition, Mulliner has applied the finishing touches to the first Blower Continuation Series car, which finished in bespoke Birkin Green paint recreated to match the original, complemented with a color-matched leather interior. Mechanically, the Blower is updated with modern electric fuel pumps and a foam baffle for the fuel tank.
Power is provided by a supercharged 4.5-liter engine producing 240 horsepower. Like the Bacalar, only 12 examples of the reborn Blower will be built. Deliveries for the first Bacalar and Blower will begin shortly as Mulliner continues developing the next three cars in both series.
"Seeing these first two cars now finished has given the whole team an enormous sense of pride. Years of work have gone into the design and development of these projects, and seeing them together is incredibly rewarding," said Paul Williams, Bentley's Director of Mulliner and Motorsport. These cars are totally unique, absolutely bespoke, and yet have been built to the same quality standards as any other Bentley. Mulliner is truly the only place in the world that could deliver a 21st century, coachbuilt grand touring barchetta at the same time as recreating an iconic road-going 1929 race car."
