  • How much power can the Bentley Batur make?

    The Bentley Batur can provide 739 horsepower and 1,000Nm of torque.
  • Who created the Bentley Batur?

    The Bentley Batur was created by Bentley Director of Design Andreas Mindt and his team.
  • Bentley Mulliner’s limited two-door grand tourer was a perfect fit for the occasion that highlighted automobiles and fashion. For the event, Bentley paired with the well-known fashion house Balmain. Both brands share a focus on unique design and authentic values.

    The Bentley Mulliner Batur was chaperoned during the parade by male and female models.

    “We are thrilled to return to Chantilly Arts & Elegance — it is the most beautiful and elegant concours anywhere in the world. It is a truly fitting place to reveal the Bentley Mulliner Batur in Europe, heir to the Bacalar. This limited production model offers a flavor of a new Bentley design language that will ultimately guide our future range of models,” said Bentley Europe Regional Director Balazs Rooz.

    The Bentley Batur is the Crewe-based luxury carmaker’s most powerful road car yet. It is powered by a 6.0-liter twin-turbocharged W12 engine that makes 739 horsepower (hp) and 1,000 Nm of pulling power.

    It uses the most advanced Bentley chassis ever with speed-tuned air suspension, active torque vectoring via eLSD, four-wheel steering, and 48-volt (V) electric anti-roll bars. An almost limitless array of options includes 3D-printed 18-carat gold, parts crafted in titanium, and sustainable Natural Fiber composites.

    Also celebrated over the weekend was the 70th anniversary of the iconic Bentley Continental. The original R Type Continental is one of the most celebrated cars in the company’s 103-year history, an embodiment of the brand’s grand touring DNA. At launch in 1952, the R-Type was the fastest four-seater and the most expensive car in the world.
