Called the ‘Bacalar’ and hand-built by the company’s Mulliner division, the special EXP 100 GT-inspired car has promised to deliver “Grand Touring at its most exhilarating.” Alongside it on Bentley’s stand will be this thing—the new Mulliner-spec Continental GT Convertible.
“Created to appeal to those customers wanting an even greater focus on beautiful details” over and above the normal Continental GTC, the Mulliner gets a new diamond-themed front grille and side vents, quilted leather on literally every surface (even the tonneau cover), and 22-inch polished alloys with floating center caps that remain upright as the wheels rotate.
Beyond that there are new leather and trim choices, seven different kinds of mood lighting, a Breitling clock, and much Mulliner branding. Buyers also get a leather-covered key that matches their car’s interior.
No mechanical changes to speak of, but that’s ok. You can either have the V8, which manages 319kph and 0-60mph (97kph) in 4sec, or the 333kph, 3.8sec-to-60mph W12.
The Continental GT Convertible is already as opulent a convertible as money can buy short of a Rolls-Royce Dawn. Does it really need all these Mulliner bits and pieces? You decide. Price? If you have to ask...
