Would You Drive a Rainbow-Colored Bentley Bacalar?

The ultimate anti-Hippie car

If you’re part of the richest 0.1% and want to show off your enormous wealth, you’ll probably resort to buying a really expensive car. As luck would have it, there are many, many multi-million-dollar cars on the market these days and Bentley peppered up that list not too long ago with the Mulliner Bacalar, a $2 million version of the Continental GT Convertible with a speedster-like tonneau cover.

Bentley’s world-famous coach-builder ups the exclusivity ante with jaw-dropping speedster

Add Bentley to the growing list of automakers that have taken the bold step of introducing a roofless speedster in their vehicle portfolio. The British automaker took to the Interwebs to introduce the Mulliner Bacalar, a $2-million open-top sports car that was named after a lake in Mexico’s Yucatan peninsula, features paint made using rice husk ash, and interior trim that includes wood accents taken from trees that fell way before Jesus was born.
