Bentley Mulliner customer firsts
Bentley Mulliner has completed the first customer cars in both of its new series of bespoke projects, each being the first of their respective twelve-vehicle series. Bacalar Car One marks the first customer delivery of Mulliner’s new coachbuilt barchetta, while Blower Car One – an accurate recreation of Sir Henry ‘Tim’ Birkin’s 1929 supercharged 4½ Litre – is the first customer car of the company’s inaugural pre-war continuation series.
Bentley’s director of Mulliner, Paul Williams, commented: “Years of work have gone into the design and development of these projects, and seeing them together is incredibly rewarding. These cars are totally unique, absolutely bespoke, and yet have been built to the same quality standards as any other Bentley.” As with every car in the two series, strictly limited to twelve examples apiece, the first have had every detail specified by their imminent owners, and as such are unique to them. Due to the nature of these personal commissions, Bentley is not able to reveal the identity of the customers, nor where the cars will be heading. However, the company promises that “each customer shares a love of driving, along with an avid appreciation for craftsmanship, authenticity and attention to detail.”
