This is the new Bentley Batur Convertible, and there are two things we should state from the outset.

First, just like the hardtop Batur, it was built by Bentley’s in-house coachbuilder Mulliner.

And second, it still uses the brand’s iconic W12.

The W12 is definitely one of the most recognizable motors ever built.

First launched in 2003, Bentley has used it to power a long list of cars, from the Continental GT to the Flying Spur.

Then, a few years ago, the automaker began adding somewhat of a disclaimer with every new W12 car.

‘This might be our last W12 vehicle’, is what they’d usually say.

Not verbatim, but that’s usually the gist.

Fortunately for the car world, the new Batur Convertible still uses legendary W12, delivering 750 PS (739 hp) horsepower in total.

The Batur Convertible completes the trio of limited-edition, coachbuilt vehicles developed Mulliner.

The first one was the Bacalar, and the second one was the Batur in its coupe form.

Visually, the key difference is of course the removable top, which folds back in 19 seconds, even while you’re on the move, at speeds of up to 30 mph.

The front grille and 22-inch wheels are also new, and designed specifically for this car.

The flagship model, which Bentley calls Car #0, is finished in Vermillion Gloss with a Dark Titanium accent, and adorned with 3D printed rose gold touches, such as the Bentley Drive Mode Selector.

That’s the model you see here in the pictures, but customers will obviously be able to customize their car at will.

Production is limited to 16 units.

Bentley hasn’t revealed how much it costs but, just like this car’s hardtop cousin, it won’t be cheap.
