Bentley Batur Convertible Revealed Limited To 16 Cars

Bentley’s coachbuilding business continues to set new standards for itself.

On Tuesday, the British luxury brand presented the Batur Convertible, the third in its line of limited-edition Mulliner cars. The hand-built grand tourer has all the luxurious touches you could want and will be one of the automaker’s final vehicles to employ its legendary W-12 engine.

The Continental GT serves as the foundation for both the open-top marvel and its coupé companion. The new Batur lacks a roof, but almost everything else remains the same, from the razor-thin headlights to the curved design and aero package. The features and personalisation choices are what truly set this convertible apart from other Bentleys, much like they did with its predecessors, which included the Bacalar barchetta. The Mulliner team promises to produce any colour, finish material, or image that customers may imagine after months of working closely with them to create the exact car they desire.

The Batur convertible’s nearly limitless customisation choices extend beyond the exterior. Bentley also wants the two-seater cabin to be a blank canvas for personal expression, so it offers a wide range of finish and material options. However, the brand appears to be particularly fond of a few crucial features. The first is the “airbridge” behind the seats, which recalls the barchetta automobiles of the past and serves as a semi-enclosed luggage compartment. The second is a 3D-printed rose gold trim around all of the important driver touch areas. Although no photographs have been released, the automobile has a retractable soft-top that can be extended in around 20 seconds at speeds of up to 30 mph.

The latest Mulliner build, according to a press statement from Bentley, will be among the company’s final vehicles to be equipped with a twin-turbocharged 6.0-liter W-12 engine. When the business teased the model earlier this month, it stated that it will include the “most powerful iteration” of the mill. It does, although the engine is identical, including performance, to the 12-cylinder in the Batur coupé. Its 740 horsepower and 738 pound-feet of torque are unlikely to disappoint anyone, however. No performance figures were supplied, although the coupé can accelerate from 0 to 60 mph in 3.3 seconds and reach a top speed of 209 mph.

Bentley intends to build only 16 models of the Batur convertible, each of which will take “several months” to complete by hand in the Mulliner facility. Don’t bother contacting the firm about putting your name down for the open-top GT, as the entire manufacturing run has already been reserved. The vehicle’s price has not been announced, however it is believed to be around $2.1 million, same to the coupé variant.
