It is not every day that one comes across a bespoke convertible Bentley and when one does, it demands absolute attention. All eyes were on this new Bentley Bacalar as it steadily moved on the London roads fresh out of the showroom. It was reported earlier that the British luxury automaker will make only 12 units of this. Recently recorded by TheTFJJ and posted on YouTube, this stunning convertible sported the original golden launch colour. Reports said that the Bacalar in the video has been hardly driven and was probably on its way to its owner.
