TWO million pounds. Two million English pounds.
That’s a lot of money for a car. Even for a Bentley as rare and beautiful as this one, no doubt.
It is called Batur and3D printed 18k gold controls and natural fiber composite parts.
The powerful 750 hp engine is the most powerful in the Bentley.
The smooth body and slim lights beckonDesign.
Specify the desired color and finish.
Limited to only 18 cars. Everything reserved immediately.
But still £2 million?
I guess you’ll never see another one again and rich people will always want something no one else has.
But it got me thinking.
Batur is 4.9 meters long. This means it costs £4,082 per centimeter.
You could buy a lotEngines for a tiny part of this car.
Just 5cm is equivalent to a £20,000 Peugeot 208, 10cm to a £40,000 Ford Focus ST and 25cm to a £100,000 Porsche 911 T.
Or how about TEN Lamborghini Urus super SUVs for the price of one Batur?
Then you could have any color of Quality Street, not just the purple one.
That brings me nicely to this technical prototype, car #0.
I wasn’t gentle with it.
Even if my house doesn’t cover the deductible, it’s my job to make sure I return all hot, smelly and in need of a drink.
This W12 engine is a technical masterpiece. Six liter displacement and twelve cylinders full of fire and flames, 1,000 Nm of torque.
The performance is nothing short of overwhelming. The top speed is 209 miles per hour. But you’ll be blinking long before then.
Grip and traction as well as cornering speed are immense. This is ensured by the combination of all-wheel drive with all-wheel steering, electric roll stabilizer and air suspension. Nevertheless, the engine always dominates.
Now some of you will say that you can get all of these good things in a Bentley Continental GT for £200,000. You can. Batur is based on a Conti. But it’s wearing a tailored suit. And it will make you much more interesting and attractive.
You can tell your friends that the gold checks are 100 percent recycled from old jewelry and ground into a fine powder needed for 3D printing.
Then handcrafted and hallmarked in Birmingham’s famous Jewelery Quarter.
You can tell them that your car is named after Lake Batur in Bali.

But there are only two seats.
So you can only take the pretty one with you.
