Last Call: The Bentley Mulliner Bacalar is a beautifully expensive mouthful

This car is so over the top and excessive, but that’s exactly what makes it so intriguing. For $2 million you get a completely custom vehicle designed and built by the Mulliner division at Bentley. The car was inspired by the EXP 100 GT concept that we saw last year which you can see in the headlights and much slimmer brake lights.

One of my favorite parts of this car is the paint that is described as “yellow flame” is made using ash from burned rice husks to mimic the metallic effect while being more environmentally conscious. Sticking with that theme, it also uses Copper-Infused Riverwood that comes from 5,000-year-old trees that have naturally fallen. All this luxury and you don’t get a roof, but it really is a sight to behold. Only 12 will be made and they’re already spoken for. I guess I’ll have to find something else to spend my imaginary 2 million on.

Last Call indicates the end of Hooniverse’s broadcast day. It’s meant to be an open forum for anyone and anything. Thread jacking is not only accepted, but it’s also encouraged.

    The story behind drama at Norton Motorcycles continues this Two-wheel Tuesday!

    Forged signatures! Stolen motorcycles! A CEO of whom it’s said, “People in the business referred to him as a ‘satanic mill owner’”! A lovely footnote at the end of the page that says, “This interview was conducted in the weeks leading up to BDO being called in to Norton as administrators. In the fullness of time, the reasons why it hasn’t been published until now will become apparent.”

    I’m not sure 5,000 year old trees match the moon rock on whatever luxury automotive trinket featured that a while back

      It sure is a limited ressource though, and hard to track:

        Thanks, I hadn’t really been aware of that but a google search brings up a story from 2000 about huon pine being poached in Tasmania, complete with reference to summary justice being considered if the authorities didn’t act.

    Roadster bodywork…bright yellow paint…”shooting star found”…

    …Is someone at Mulliner a Speed Racer fan?
