- The Middle East is Bentley’s most successful market anywhere in the world for bespoke vehicles, and the customers are particularly known for their appreciation of Mulliner’s craftsmanship
- The Batur is more than just a car – it is a vision of Bentley’s future that meets the needs of customers and car collectors in the Kingdom
The Bentley Batur has made its first public appearance in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. On display at Bentley Saudi Arabia’s showrooms in Riyadh, and Jeddah, it was also displayed at the Riyadh Car Show, one of the major events during the Riyadh Season.
There will be just 18 examples of Bentley’s Ultimate Grand Tourer available, with several reservations coming from the Middle East, while deliveries are expected to begin in mid-2023.
The Middle East is Bentley’s most successful market in the world for bespoke vehicles, with its customers particularly appreciating Mulliner’s craftsmanship. Mulliner’s design team guides each client through the design process, leading to a truly unique vehicle.
The Batur is the most powerful Bentley yet, with a 729+ Bhp (740+ PS) version of the iconic, hand-assembled 6.0-liter twin-turbocharged W12 engine that has metaphorically and literally powered Bentley’s success for the last two decades.
As the engine enters its twilight years as part of Bentley’s Beyond100 transformation journey to being fully electrified, the Batur forms the first part of a celebration of the W12’s extraordinary power, torque, and refinement. Engine performance will be matched to the most advanced Bentley chassis ever, with Speed-tuned air suspension, electric active anti-roll control, eLSD, four-wheel steering, and torque vectoring.
Customers will be able to specify the color and finish of practically every surface of the Batur, to create a car as individual as they are. From the main exterior paint to the surface finish of the air vents, and literally everything in between, each customer will specify even the tiniest of details.
Commenting on the news, Peter Smith, General Manager of Bentley Saudi Arabia, said: “We are pleased to introduce the ultimate Grand Tourer from Bentley to the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. With a veritable display of cutting-edge techniques and materials, the Batur offers a level of luxury only Mulliner can offer. This Batur is more than just a car – it is a vision of Bentley’s future that meets the needs of customers and car collectors in the Kingdom.”
The Mulliner Bacalar was the first coach-built project in recent years, which gave significant insight into Bentley’s customers and customer choices. For Batur, an even greater selection of options has been developed, not only including colors, materials, and finishes, but also new technology such as the Mulliner by Naim Audio system. This takes the Naim Audio system from the Continental GT and transforms it with 20 new Focal speakers, exclusively configured for Batur and custom tuned into a truly immersive class-leading Audio experience.
