It is summertime in Europe, and as always, the French Riviera is bustling with guests from the Middle East. They’ve brought along some interesting cars and thanks to G-E Supercars, we can enjoy the sights and sounds of Cannes as well.
One of the highlights of the day though, was the $2 million Bentley Bacalar. The rare convertible GT was spotted outside the Carlton Hotel. Painted in a fairly discreet shade of grey/silver, this particular Bacalar is owned by the prince of Qatar.

The Bacalar was designed by renowned coachbuilder Mulliner, and was inspired by the EXP 100 GT Concept. It has a low-slung front grille flanked by oval headlamps and a redesigned front bumper. It gets slimmer LEDtail lights and 22-inch wheels that are unique to this car.
Under the bonnet is a 6.0-liter, twin-turbo W12 engine. It produces 650 hp and 667 lb-ft of torque. The motor is paired with an 8-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission. Bentley claims that the car will hit 62 mph in 3.5 seconds and has a top speed of 200 mph.
