Bentley Mulliner Teases Batur Grand Tourer, Previews Bentley’s EV Future

We get our first proper look at the limited-edition model in the new Bentley Mulliner Batur teaser. Having a long hood and sloping roofline, the Batur is a classic grand-touring coupe, as we can now see. The car makes its debut on Saturday, August 20, at 8:00 PM local time as part of Monterey Car Week.

There are two wheels on the Batur, one for the past and one for the future. According to Bentley, the car serves as a showcase for the brand’s upcoming electric vehicle design language. This, however, is not an EV. Instead, the coupe is powered by the venerable twin-turbo 6.0-liter W12 engine, which is now more potent than ever. These figures are not yet being released by the company. The Bacalar variant generates 667 pound-feet (900 Newton-meters) of torque and 650 horsepower (485 kilowatts) of power.

The Batur, according to Bentley, has the “most advanced chassis system ever.” The company isn’t providing any more information beyond this nebulous assertion. If you look closely at the design of the car, you can see that the base of the rear glass has a separate panel that might be an active spoiler.

Each Batur will be handcrafted by Bentley, and customers will be able to choose the colour and exterior and interior finishes. They can choose from eco-friendly materials like natural fibre composites and leather with low carbon emissions. Additionally, 18-karat gold can be 3D printed.

The grille was partially visible in a previous Bentley teaser. The flying B logo for the company is raised high on the nose. A chrome grille with a V-shaped mesh pattern is located below it.

The open-roof Bacalar is to be replaced by the Batur, according to Bentley. There were only 12 made by the company. Each car took six months to produce due to the handbuilt production and extensive customization. Each one cost £1.5 million, or about $1.9 million at the time due to exchange rates.

The Bentley EV, which will make its debut in 2025, will take after the appearance of the Batur. Adrian Hallmark, the company’s CEO, suggested the electric model could generate up to 1,400 horsepower (1,044 kW).
