Like Bentley Bacalar, customers will also be able to personalise Batur according to their wishes. One can wish for any colour and finish of every surface and component for creating a customised Bentley Batur unit. The company shared that material options include sustainable natural fibre composites, low-CO2 leather and even 3D printed 18K gold.
Bentley Batur will feature the W12 engine which will be able to churn massive power and torque though the automaker has not divulged the figures. As the brand slowly starts its transition towards electrification, Bentley is going all in to use the W12 engine in what it is calling the ultimate Bentley grand tourer, Batur. The chassis system of the new car will be the most advanced that will match the power of the powertrain which will give the grand tourer dynamic straight-line performance.
