A dozen lucky owners are in for a treat. The 2022 Bentley Bacalar prototype testing has begun in order to deliver the ultimate British roadster. This project serves as the first car from Bentley’s Mulliner Coachbuilt portfolio. The top brass gave their custom shop a blank check, and work began on “Car Zero”. Comprised of 750 unique parts, 40 new carbon fiber bits are found inside and out.
The shakedown procedures have already subjected the car to 20 weeks of flogging. High-speed runs, bumpy roads, hot and cold soak chambers, and the skidpad have been used to find any faults. Now the team has a schedule of simulating how the dozen production cars will be used in the real world. It shares no body panels with their other offerings, and if you need a roof you’re out of luck. The twin-turbo W12 offers 650 horsepower and 667 lb-ft of torque to all wheels. The closest Bentley we have to offer is a new Continental GT for sale, so click the button below and stay with us for all your Bentley news.
