The most expensive coupe of the Bentley's history revealed soon

~Most EXPensive~ Regarding luxury cars, Bentley is an expert. Well, it seems that the British car brand is not satisfied with some of the expensive car products it has produced and offered. Most recently through its bespoke coachbuilder division, Mulliner, the British marque is allegedly working on a second model after the Bentley Bacalar (an ultra-luxury roofless car of only 12 units made, and launched of 2020).

As quoted of Autocar, the upcoming two-door luxury car won't be as exclusive as the sibling. Due to the number of production would be increased up to 25 units, and another difference between the two Bentley's cars is the fixed-roof presence and styling cues stemming from the Bentley EXP 100 GT electric-powered car made of 2019.

The design of the as-yet-unnamed car is supposed to be a window into future Bentley models without combustion engines, adopting cues that will be taken by pure electric vehicles from Crewe-based automaker. According to the same report, the front fascia will look aggressive with a more angular theme and a refreshed typical grille, flanked by sleek LED headlights.

Then fat wheel arches are also included in the plans for the new coupe, as are sleek taillights and other details that will set the car apart from the "plain" Bentley Continental GT.

Meanwhile, the person in charge of the exterior appearance was Andreas Mindt, who had previously designed the Bentley Hunaudieres in 1999, although the 22-year-old concept car was never produced, it played an important role in the Bugatti Veyron's design process.

Next up is the drivetrain, which is said to come from a 6.0-liter twin-turbo W12 engine also installed in the Bentley Continental GT Speed, and is said to be capable of 650 horsepower (485 kilowatts) and 664 pound-feet (900 Newton-meters) of torque. With these settings, the high-performance coupe can sprint from still to 62 mph (100 kph) in just 3.6 seconds, with a top speed of 208 mph (335 kph).

The same power and performance is also expected to happen in this new Mulliner Coupe. While it also built based on the Continental GT Speed with large 440mm carbon-ceramic front brakes, stiffer suspension and a modified chassis, and this luxury coupe could mark the beginning of the end for the W12 engine. Autocar got information from reliable sources that the twelve-cylinder unit would be phased out "shortly after the launch of the next Mulliner model (in 2023)."

How about the price? You might be a little surprised to hear that. The basic version, if we can call it that, will cost from £1.5 million (around Rp.28.4 billion at current exchange rates), and able to increase up to £2 million (approx Rp.37.9 billion). Well, with so many high-end upgrades done by the Mulliner, it would be made it the most expensive variant in the Bentley history. So better for us right now, just wait and see. Que sera sera. *** [EKA | FROM VARIOUS SOURCES | AUTOCAR | CARSCOOPS | CARBUZZ | ID.MOTOR1 ]
