The Batur Convertible by Bentley impresses as one of the last chapters for Bentley’s revered W12 engine. Named in honor of Bali’s breathtaking Lake Batur, this convertible serves as a direct offspring of the 2022 Batur coupe, yet it outshines it in terms of exclusivity with only 16 units manufactured—two fewer than its forerunner. This convertible isn’t merely a farewell to the W12; it’s a display of its pinnacle performance, delivering an impressive 740 horsepower and 737 pound-feet of torque, matching the robust output of the coupe model.

This newest version of the W12, a twin-turbo 6.0-liter engine, signifies the culmination of more than two decades of exceptional engineering. Over its lifecycle, the engine has witnessed a nearly 40% boost in power output, alongside a 25% decrease in fuel consumption. Power from this potent engine is transmitted through an eight-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission, fine-tuned for the opulent driving experience anticipated from Bentley. Further enhancing its power, the Batur Convertible boasts a bespoke titanium exhaust system meticulously crafted by Akrapovič, featuring striking 3D-printed embellishments.

Bentley has furnished the Batur Convertible with a functional and swift-operating soft top, retractable in a mere 19 seconds even while cruising at speeds of up to 30 mph. The convertible offers unparalleled options for personalization, enabling owners to customize nearly every facet of the vehicle to match their preferences. In contrast to the more practical Continental GT Convertible, the Batur features a strictly two-seater layout, elevating its exclusive ambiance with an seamlessly integrated ducktail spoiler and distinctive 22-inch wheels.

Reflecting the opulence of its coupe counterpart, the Batur Convertible exhibits an interior embellished with rose gold accents and a fusion of classic opulence and contemporary style characteristic of Bentley’s grand tourers. While the pricing of the vehicle remains undisclosed, it is expected to surpass the $2.1 million price tag of the coupe, solidifying its position among the most prestigious and limited offerings in Bentley’s range. As Bentley gears up to retire the W12, the Batur Convertible stands as a fitting homage to an iconic powertrain, blending timeless sophistication with peak automotive performance.
