There’s been a rash of ultra-luxury car brands in recent years that have gone “topless.” We’re not talking about “droptop” but instead “no top” at all, and the Bentley Bacalar is the latest hypercar to join this trend. The sexy two-seater won’t feature any top at all, making it a fair-weather car. Only a dozen Bentley Bacalars are slated for production and all of them have already been sold.
The Bentley Bacalar shares the same body with the Bentley Continental GT convertible but is a hyper exclusive automobile. Each of the twelve Bacalars will cost at least $1.9 million. The Bacalar takes its name from a lake in the Yucatan peninsula in Mexico and follows in the Bentley tradition of being named after extraordinary landmarks.
The Bacalar features much more aggressive styling than the Continental GT, helping it stand out from the crowd. While Bentley is known for its understated design philosophy, the Bacalar is a unique and distinctive car indeed.
The Bacalar will be powered by a W-12 engine that cranks out 650 horsepower. This hypercar should be able to hit 60 miles per hour in about 3.5 seconds and should top out at over 200 miles per hour.
While the Bacalar offers great on-road performance, you likely won’t be seeing them on the road. The cars haven’t gone through testing in the United States and are being sold exclusively as “show and display” automobiles.
Those lucky few who have managed to get their hands on a Bentley Bacalar likely aren’t looking to rack up miles anyway.
