Bentley has already unveiled the Mulliner Batur, which is a very special addition to the lineup, since only 18 units of the two-door coupe will be built. For those lucky 18 buyers, Bentley has announced that the Mulliner Batur is available with up to 210 grams of 3D printed solid yellow gold.
The optional, 3D printed gold can be applied to the Charisma Dial, encircling the start/stop button and used to change driver modes. Gold is also applied to the Organ Stop vent controls on the dashboard, as well as a gold insert marker on the steering wheel itself.
Bentley has teamed up with goldsmiths Cooksongold to create the gold parts, which are sustainably sourced as the gold is created from 100 percent recycled jewelry. The old jewelry is ground into a fine powder.
“As Bentley embraces an exciting future, we see huge potential in advanced, innovative technologies. Processes such as 3D printed gold will be a springboard that allows our customers an even greater ability to personalize, further enhancing the individualization program offered on every car,” stated Dr. Matthias Rabe, Member of the Board for Research and Development at Bentley Motors.
The Bentley Mulliner Batur is already sold out with each one getting a $1.95 million price tag.
