Das Bentley Batur Convertible: Eine Exklusivität mit W12-Power und Abschiedscharakter



The Bentley Batur Convertible is an exceedingly pricey W12 luxury car.

Only 16 units will be crafted of this stunning 740 horsepower open-top vehicle.

The farewell journey for the W12 engine continues, with the Batur being one of its final showcases. The model derives its name from a crater lake in">Kintamani, Bali. What you're looking at is essentially the convertible variant of the Batur Coupe, which made its debut in 2022. However, this convertible iteration is even more limited in availability. While the hardtop Batur was released in a batch of 18 cars, only 16 fortunate individuals with substantial bank balances will have the chance to own the convertible version.

While it's not the ultimate iteration of Bentley's 6.0-liter twin-turbo, the Batur Convertible remains one of the final few models to boast the twelve-cylinder engine. Similar to the Batur Coupe, it represents the most powerful version to date, delivering 740 horsepower and 1,000 Nm of torque. The now-iconic power unit is set to be retired sometime next summer.

The esteemed TSI engine has been a staple in Bentley vehicles for over two decades. During this period, it has undergone significant enhancements, boosting its power by nearly 40% while also achieving a 25% reduction in fuel consumption. Its lavish power is transmitted to all four wheels via an 8-speed dual-clutch transmission. In the Batur model, a titanium exhaust system from Akrapovic is utilized, featuring massive tailpipe trims produced using 3D printing technology.

All the official photos depict the Batur Convertible with its top down, yet it's clear that there's a fabric roof concealed behind the seats. With the simple push of a button, this element can effortlessly open or close in just 19 seconds, even while the car is moving at speeds up to 50 km/h. The luxury car manufacturer based in Crewe offers endless customization possibilities, allowing virtually every inch of the vehicle to be tailored to the buyer's preferences.

Bentley is presenting the vehicle solely as a two-seater, contrasting with the open Continental GT which can accommodate up to four passengers if necessary. Unlike the coupe which features an active rear spoiler, this latest variant with unlimited headroom sports a modest spoiler lip at the rear. Additionally, it boasts redesigned 22-inch wheels and a cover for the convertible top when it's retracted.

The prototype #0 showcased here is adorned in a rather vibrant shade of "Vermillion Gloss Satin" orange, complemented by shiny carbon fiber details. Inside, the vehicle features rose gold inlays, likely matching the iPhones of some Batur buyers.

The opulent interior, with its array of traditional buttons, a rotating panel for navigation or conventional circular dials, and a classic analog clock, strongly resembles the Continental GT Convertible. Bentley has not yet disclosed the price of the Batur convertible. However, it is likely to be at least as much as the nearly 2.4 million euros charged for the sold-out coupe version. This represents a significant premium over its own starting point – the open-top Continental GT Speed begins at just over 320,000 euros.

Despite the imminent discontinuation of the W12 and the approaching end of the famed V10 powering the Audi R8 and Lamborghini Huracán, the VW Group still has some powerful engines in play. The Lamborghini Revuelto will continue to grace our presence with its V12 for some time, and Bugatti is gearing up to unveil a new V16 hypercar to succeed the Chiron.
