The Mulliner Batur may very well be the last Bentley to have an ICE. Additionally, it establishes the design aesthetic Bentley will use for its next EVs, which are anticipated to go on sale in 2025.
The Bentley Mulliner Batur, a brand-new two-door touring coupe, has been launched by British luxury vehicle manufacturer Bentley Motors. The Mulliner Batur has a new design DNA that may eventually influence the development of Bentley’s upcoming series of EVs.
The Bentley Mulliner Batur is the most potent vehicle to leave Bentley’s stables in Crewe, Cheshire. It is only restricted to 18 units, similar to the Bacalar, with all of them already sold.
The Batur is based on the Continental GT and employs the floorpan and mechanicals, but having a very different appearance from any Bentley. The automobile was commissioned by Mulliner, Bentley’s in-house bespoke designers, and features a reinvented front with a wide grille but a sharp teardrop-shaped headlamp in place of the twin-pod design.
The back of the car retains the GT’s design as well, but the lines flow more organically than they did on the Continental GT. Except for the door mirrors, the majority of the car has been entirely new. It has custom 22-inch alloy wheels.
The new design demonstrates how the manufacturer has developed its design philosophies for its first BEV, which is scheduled for release in 2025, and additional automobiles that will follow.
The Mulliner Batur is equipped with the most powerful Bentley engine ever. Advanced twelve-cylinder engine, 6.0-litre W12.
The W12 receives new turbochargers and intercoolers as it reaches its twilight years and Bentley gets ready for the electric future. The innovative 12-cylinder 6.0-liter W12 engine produces 719.59 horsepower and 1,000 Nm of maximum torque. Bentley’s eight-speed double-clutch transmission is mated to the W12.
The Batur expands on the fundamental aspects of the cabin design of its predecessor, the Bacalar, and adds additional sustainable luxury amenities.
Customers also had the option of picking from a choice of sustainable interior materials such as tannage leather, low-carbon leather, and Dinamica, an alternative material to leather.
The carpets are tailored to the leather and created from recycled yarn, a first for Bentley. Customers can select between bright or dark treatments for the interior, as well as options for titanium and brightware.
Before taxes or customs, the Bentley Mulliner Batur costs $2 million. Mulliner offers a number of optional additions that might raise the price even further. However, most people won’t be able to purchase the automobile from Bentley because of its price. Customers have already reserved 18 of these ultra-luxury vehicles, with the first few expected to arrive before the end of the year.
