Bentley Mulliner Batur Revealed, Already Sold Out

Bentley will only build 18 examples of the 710-horsepower Batur for the princely sum of around $2.0 million.

Bentley’s cars will look different for the first time in a long time. The new Bentley Mulliner Batur coupe makes its debut this week in Monterey, California, and it previews how all future models will look.

In a few ways, the Batur deviates from Bentley’s now-defunct design language. The split rounded headlights have been replaced by sleek triple-beam light fixtures with LED accents that jut out toward the front fenders on this coupe. The new grille is evolutionary, with aggressive bumper detailing beneath it, unique 22-inch wheels that sit within the wheel wells, and even slimmer taillights than before.

The Batur was designed by Bentley’s Director of Design Andreas Mindt and his team. Mindt joined Bentley in 2021 after 25 years working with Volkswagen Group brands such as VW and Audi; you may recall Mindt as the designer behind the electric Audi E-Tron.

The Mulliner Batur, like the E-Tron, will guide Bentley’s styling as the automaker transitions into EV production as part of its “Beyond100” strategy. Bentley hopes to be completely electric by 2030, but the Mulliner Batur isn’t.

Under the hood is Bentley’s ubiquitous twin-turbocharged 6.0-liter W12 engine, tuned to produce 710 horsepower (544 kilowatts) and 738 pound-feet (1,000 newton-meters) of torque. This is the company’s most powerful vehicle to date, and it rides on an advanced air suspension with electric active anti-roll, an electronic limited-slip differential, and four-wheel steering.

The interior of the Batur isn’t as striking as the exterior. The cabin, which was inspired by last year’s Bacalar, retains its Bentley-esque identity with updated materials tailored to each customer’s preferred style – all while keeping the environment in mind, of course.

Inside the Batur, three sustainable materials are available: Scottish and Italian leather, as well as Dinamica faux suede. The carpets are made of recycled yarn, a company first. In addition, instead of carbon fibre, Bentley employs a natural fibre composite that it claims is sourced more sustainably. Bentley even offers specific 3D-printed components in 18-karat gold for those who want to go all out.

Bentley will only produce 18 Mulliner Baturs at a cost of £1.65 million (approximately $2.0 million USD at current conversion rates), and each one has already been reserved. After final testing is completed, production will begin in early 2023, with the first few examples expected to reach customers later that year.
