Can you guess all three?
At last year's Salon Prive, Bentley's bespoke Mulliner division revealed a restoration project for the 1929 Team Blower with a run of 12 cars, each using a rebuilt 4.5-liter supercharged engine. One year later, car events are now starting to resume as countries gain control over the coronavirus pandemic. This year's Salon Prive takes place from September 22 to the 26 on the grounds of Blenheim Palace in the UK, and Mulliner is coming prepared.
The bespoke division plans to debut three new cars on the show's opening day of September 22, 2020. One reveal, the Team Blower, is already spoken for, and Mulliner will also show off a new addition to its Collections family. The 2021 Bentley Bacalar, a Mulliner creation, also makes its public debut after its Geneva debut was pushed online.
We've already seen the stunning craftsmanship of the Team Blower continuation series and the Bacalar detailed online, but only 12 lucky customers will have the chance to purchase each one. The third reveal from Bentley Mulliner Collections will be slightly more attainable. Mulliner plans to show new derivatives for customers to customize the core Bentley range, including unique color-matched paint, hide, and thread combinations, and bespoke content. To show off these new luxury touches, Bentley will bring a highly-optioned Continental GT Convertible featuring Mulliner upgrades.
Along with its three new reveals, Bentley will bring along two historic cars from its Heritage Collection. These include a 1930 8-Litre, wearing an HJ Mulliner body and owned by W.O. Bentley himself, as well as a Mulliner-bodied 1952 R-Type Continental, the fastest four-seat car of the era.
Bentley's stand at Salon Prive will include numerous safety measures for the pandemic, including temperature checks for all attendees, a five-times-daily schedule of fogging with Hypochlorous Acid, mandatory face masks, a full track-and-trace system, hand sanitizer, and social distancing.
