Batur Convertible becomes the third coachbuilt Bentley of the modern era

The Batur Convertible is Bentley's third modern-era coach-built model by Mulliner, featuring a limited edition of 16 units and the iconic 750PS W12 engine, all in an open-air Grand Touring design. Share

The Batur Convertible emerges as the third modern-era coachbuilt Bentley by Mulliner, evolving from Bentley’s core design DNA and capturing the essence of open-air Grand Touring in a progressive design inspired by the Batur. Defined as the ultimate expression of personalised luxury and individualism, this model is a canvas for the imagination, offered in a strictly limited edition of 16 examples worldwide. These cars showcase unprecedented innovation in colour and materiality for a production Bentley, inspired by the depths of nature. Selected clients are invited to co-create something uniquely theirs, engineered and built by the original master craftspeople of bespoke coachbuilding.

The Batur Convertible features a two-door, two-seat configuration under a beautiful retractable roof, offering expanded personalisation options such as the ‘airbridge’ and Rose Gold interior detailing. Each of these convertibles is among the last ever Bentleys to utilise the iconic 750PS W12 engine. Following the sold-out Bacalar barchetta and Batur coupe, the Batur Convertible demonstrates Bentley’s continued innovation in luxury and performance.

The Batur Convertible is unveiled as a continuation of Mulliner’s legacy in crafting truly individual cars, each tailored to the desires of extraordinary clients. This model retains the most powerful iteration of Bentley’s W12—a hand-assembled 6.0-litre twin-turbocharged engine that has been a cornerstone of Bentley’s success for the last two decades. With the W12 set to conclude production this summer, the Batur Convertible represents one of the final opportunities to experience this remarkable powertrain.

Reflecting on Bentley’s rich heritage of open-cockpit designs, the architecture of the Batur Convertible allows Mulliner’s designers to blend the design elements of the Bacalar and Batur, enhancing the usability of a convertible. This design includes a wraparound cockpit inspired by the Bacalar, and features like the dramatic ‘airbridge’ and tapered cowls at the rear not only enhance aesthetics but also provide a semi-enclosed luggage compartment behind the front seats.

The convertible roof itself adds a layer of beauty and modern functionality, capable of transforming from closed to open in just 19 seconds while the car is moving at speeds of up to 30 mph. This transition allows the car to shift from a luxurious coupe to an open-top Grand Tourer seamlessly. In the cabin, the exclusive option of 3D-printed rose gold can be applied to key driver touchpoints such as the Bentley Drive Mode Selector and the iconic Organ Stop vent controls, all crafted by expert goldsmiths from Birmingham’s historic Jewellery Quarter. This highlights Bentley’s commitment to merging advanced manufacturing technologies with traditional materials and finishing techniques.

Mulliner’s in-house design team works closely with each client using a specially created visualiser that allows any part of the car to be customised in colour and surface finish, with a variety of unique materials bringing texture and individuality to the design process. Clients can specify the colour and finish of almost every surface, with options for custom paint colours, hand-painted graphics, and exterior brightware in various finishes. Additional personal touches include a graduated contrast colour for the front grille, creating a vibrant ombre effect.

Each Batur Convertible will be meticulously handcrafted over several months at Mulliner’s facilities in Bentley’s carbon-neutral factory in Crewe, England. The Batur Convertible not only showcases Bentley’s expertise in luxury coachbuilding but also sets new benchmarks for performance with its extensively recalibrated W12 engine, delivering 750 PS and 1,000 Nm of torque, paired with an eight-speed double-clutch transmission and a titanium sports exhaust system for an exhilarating driving experience. The exterior of the engineering development car, Car #0, features bespoke Vermillion Gloss and Satin paintwork, with additional carbon fibre and titanium elements emphasising the vehicle’s sophisticated and dynamic design.
