Bentley Batur, Bentley Bentayga SUV, Limited edition Bentley, fresh details

The ultra-exclusive Batur line-up from Bentley now has a convertible body style. The Batur convertible is not only likely to become Bentley’s most expensive car yet but also one of the most powerful combustion-engined convertibles to come out of Great Britain.

The new Batur drop-top is the third bespoke model line from Bentley's Mulliner coachbuilding division, following the coupe – on which it is based – and the closely related Bacalar. Although, unlike the latter, this new model does feature a retractable roof. Just 16 examples will be built, each featuring extreme levels of personalisation and costing over GBP 2 million (about Rs 20.9 crore).

  1. Batur Convertible among last Bentleys to use W12 engine
  2. No two examples will be alike
  3. “Infinite” paint choices on offer

Derived from the Continental GT, the new two-seater will be one of the last cars to feature Bentley's 6.0-litre twin-turbocharged W12 engine; production ends in the summer. Here, as in the Batur coupe, it is tuned to give 750hp and 1,000Nm, and while Bentley has not given full performance figures, it's expected to match the hard-top's 3.4sec 0-100kph time and 336kph top speed.

No two examples of the machine will be alike with the scope of personalisation offered by Mulliner, and it's “limited only by their imagination” when it comes to designing their car.

They can choose the colour and material used for “practically every surface”, says Bentley, with “infinite” colours on offer, along with hand-painted graphics, different types of finish for the metal bodywork trim and even an ombre-style effect for the front grille.

So customers choose the material used for the convertible top and the wraparound cockpit can be optionally decorated throughout with 3D-printed rose gold-trim elements – including the 'organ stop' vent controls.

Confirmation that the Batur Convertible will be “one of the last ever” models to feature Bentley's biggest engine suggests the W12 is not ready to retire just yet, and further 12-pot special editions could come before the firm replaces the motor with a new V8 hybrid arrangement for its core models.
