Bentley organized during the closure of the lockdwon plants, due to the spread of the coronavirus pandemic, an internal competition, reserved for employees and their families, to imagine their own personalized Bacalar. Although production will in fact be limited to 12 exclusive specimens, the imagination was not lacking for those who faced the challenge.
Stefan Sielaff, Bentley’s head of design, selected the winning project by choosing Eleanor’s Bacalar for the exterior style, which coloured the supercar following the rainbow theme as a symbol of gratitude and hope for the future. While waiting for the go-ahead for the opening of Crewe’s industrial facilities, Bentley’s 3D printers have produced more than 30,000 visors for the care sector in Cheshire. The British manufacturer is also participating in a programme to donate personal protective equipment such as gloves, face masks, safety glasses and seat covers.
