The Bentley Mulliner Batur previews company’s future design language

The Bentley Mulliner Batur is the most powerful road-going Bentley to date and while its powertrain might be old school, it does give us an idea of what future Bentleys will look like. Only 18 units will be built, and they're already accounted for!

The Mulliner Batur is an ultra-exclusive W12-powered luxury grand tourer. 

Bentley Mulliner’s Batur is a sleek coupe that marks the debut of a new design language for the brand. The Batur is also the most powerful road-going Bentley to date, thanks to a familiar behemoth of an engine under the hood. Yup, before Bentley goes full-electric in 2030, the brand is giving the W12 a proper send-off.

In terms of design language, the round split-headlight design of the Continental GT has been replaced by a single unit that houses three main LED clusters. There’s a sleek DRL bar running above the main beams, stretched beyond the outer edge of the headlight.

The grille is also redesigned (with red detailing in the images here), while the profile shows a rather unique silhouette, thanks to an almost fastback roofline. The rear gets horizontal taillights with three LED units and a pop-up spoiler.

Inside, the Batur is slightly less brave, with a layout that is reminiscent of current Bentleys. However, it does get the option of using sustainable materials inside, like faux suede and recycled yarn carpets. If it's opulence you’re looking for, you can get certain 3D printed elements in 18-karat gold.

As mentioned earlier, powering the Batur is the iconic 6.0-litre twin-turbo W12, which produces 729bhp and a whopping 1,000Nm of torque. It also gets an eLSD, four-wheel steering, and an active anti-roll system powered by a 48-volt system.

Bentley will only make 18 examples of the Batur, which will have a starting price of Rs 15.97 crore (before Indian taxes and duties), and yes, all 18 units have been sold out. Better luck next time!
