Grand Touring? Bentley Mulliner Bacalar to Debut at Geneva

Bentley Mulliner Bacalar Debuts at Geneva

Well,  it’s certainly grand in size…

Bentley says it will reveal the future of coach-building at next month’s Geneva International Motor Show with the unveiling of the Bentley Mulliner Bacalar. Hand-built by Bentley Mulliner, the oldest coach-builder in the world, the Bacalar “represents Grand Touring at its most exhilarating.” In Bentley’s view “sustainable and ethically-sourced materials are fused with a beautiful, yet dramatic design inspired by Bentley’s centenary concept car, the EXP 100 GT.

The autonomous and electric EXP 100 GT has Artificial Intelligence in a car that is capable of being driven or being enjoyed in driverless mode. Allegedly sustainable future luxury is created through the use of 5,000-year-old copper-infused riverwood; exterior paint made from recycled rice husks; 100% organic leather-like interior textiles derived from wine-making; Cumbrian crystal interfaces; British farmed wool carpets and embroidered cotton interior finishes.

With a battery electric power train, intelligent power and charge management, optional autonomy and a carefully selection of exquisite materials, the EXP 100 GT is an “environmental showcase” for the luxury automotive brand.
