Bentley has published a colorful teaser for the exclusive Bacalar Roadster

The image of the luxury British car, which was published by the press service of Bentley, could win the design competition.

Bentley recently held an online competition in which company employees and their families were tasked with developing the perfect version of the luxury Bacalar convertible from the Mulliner court atelier. Automotive Design Director Stefan Silaff chose this rainbow-colored creation from a woman named Eleanor the best work among all participants.

 Unfortunately, this striking design will probably not be on one of the 12 planned production instances of the Bacalar model that go into production unless the customer specifies it separately. However, the luxurious British brand claims that the use of the full range of colors on the vehicle is possible.

Starting from the top of the car and moving down, the Bacalar body wears seven different shades.

Dragon Red II is a vibrant color that previously appeared on the Continental GT coupe with a V8 engine in 2012 and most recently on the Bentayga V8 crossover. Orange Flame uses paint with mica pigment and powdered aluminum. The Yellow Flame is the same shade that the Bacalar body was painted when it was just making its debut. Apple Green is one of Bentley’s custom-made exterior colors. Jetstream II is a signature blue color with a metallic finish. Sequin Blue was ordered by a buyer who wanted a car in the color of his favorite ball gown, and is now part of the affordable color palette for the brand’s cars. And finally, the shade of Azure Purple was also created “on a whim” of the client – this color corresponds to the flower of African violet.

 All 12 copies of Bacalar already have buyers, and the company charges 1.5 million pounds for each of them. Under the hood of a roofless roadster, there is a 6.0-liter W12 with two turbines and a capacity of 650 horsepower (900 Nm). Bentley claims that acceleration from 0 to 100 km / h will take 3.5 seconds and a top speed of 322 km / h.

    Not so long ago, we wrote that the Bentley Flying Star or the company’s never-created station wagon. Ten years ago, an Italian design studio created the Flying Star station wagon specifically for Bentley. But the car never got into the series.
