British manufacturer and marketer of luxury cars and SUVs, Bentley Motors has launched the Bentley Mulliner Batur, a new two-door grand touring coupé that embodies the start of a design revolution at Bentley.
The Batur showcases a new design DNA that will ultimately guide the design of Bentley’s future range of Battery Electric Vehicles (BEVs).
According to the statement, “The collection of just 18 series examples of the Batur is the latest project by Bentley’s in-house bespoke and coachbuilding division, Mulliner, and succeeds the Bacalar that relaunched coachbuilding at Bentley. Like the Bacalar, the Batur is named after a beautiful natural body of water.” All 18 examples of the Batur have already been reserved.
The company said that “the Batur will also be the most powerful Bentley yet, with a 740+ PS version of the iconic, hand-assembled 6.0-liter twin-turbocharged W12 engine that has metaphorically and powered Bentley’s success for the last two decades.”
The engine performance will be matched to the most advanced Bentley chassis ever, with Speed-tuned air suspension, electric active anti-roll control, eLSD, four-wheel steering, and torque vectoring.
The Batur sits on unique 22” wheels, with the ‘standard’ option being painted in Black Crystal and then surface bright machined and polished. The two-seat interior space of the Batur is designed for the ultimate in personalization and long-distance grand touring.
“The exterior paintwork of the launch Batur is a bespoke color – Bonneville Pearlescent Silver – with bodywork underscored by carbon fiber front splitters, side skirts, and rear diffuser painted in Black Crystal,” the company added.
The most powerful and exclusive Bentley coupe to date, the Batur will also be the most dynamic. “The driver can select the balance between ride comfort and body control using the four-mode Drive Dynamics Control in the center console, choosing between Sport, Bentley, Comfort, and Custom, which also changes the behavior of the 48V electric active anti-roll control system, providing up to 1,300 Nm of anti-roll torque in 0.3 seconds or completely decoupling the wheels at either end of each axle,” as per the statement.
