A roomy two-seater with a 650-bhp W12 engine, Bacalar is just the first of what will be a new portfolio of cars sprung from a nascent division at Bentley called Mulliner Coachbuilt. The exterior of the all-wheel-drive, eight-speed Bacalar is defined by its wide stance, clamshell rear, and Barchetta, or roofless, body.
