Exclusive, Expensive and Only Twelve In Production: The Bentley Mulliner Bacalar Roadster

Own It
BY : JustLuxe Team | 2020

The dimensions of the 2021 Bentley Mulliner Bacalar define what Ultra High Net Worth means to this high-end automobile manufacturer and twelve buyers. The Bacalar is one of the most exclusive and expensive cars to be launched this year; only twelve will be made, each priced at just over $1.9 million, before options and taxes, and each one has already been purchased. The Bacalar is produced in the world’s first certified carbon neutral factory for luxury car production. Its design includes a wrap-around cockpit and semi-enclosed rear compartment. The dashboard is cut from Riverwood, a sustainable wood taken from naturally fallen trees preserved for 5,000 years in peat bogs found in the Fenlands of East Anglia, England.

It has a roofless design, and is the result of collective interaction between the Bentley Mulliner design team and each individual customer, as the models are handcrafted, according to the individual customer’s personal tastes. At the heart of the Bacalar is Bentley’s 6.0-liter, twin-turbocharged W12 TSI engine, balanced with a technically-advanced drivetrain. The Roadster’s dual-clutch, eight-speed transmission offers faster, more efficient gear changes and an adaptive chassis uses Bentley’s 48-volt Dynamic Ride System to ensure a responsive ride and exceptional handling in all conditions.

Bentley has called the Bacalar the "most exclusive and bespoke Bentley of the modern era.” Surely, among the rarest also.

2021 Aston Martin Vantage Roadster Available to Order

Own It
BY : JustLuxe Team | 2020

Aston Martin’s sports car range just got that little bit faster with the introduction of the new Vantage Roadster. Joining the Vantage Coupe, which was launched in 2018, this convertible model amplifies the emotional appeal of a model renowned for delivering a compelling blend of potent performance, outstanding dynamics and everyday usability.

  • New Vantage Roadster joins Coupe in Aston Martin’s most driver-focussed model line
  • Powered by 4.0-litre, 510PS/685Nm twin-turbo V8 mated to eight-speed ZF transmission
  • Maximum speed 190mph. 0-60mph in 3.7sec
  • Fabric hood features ultra-compact mechanism with sub-7 sec operation – the fastest for any fully automatic automotive convertible roof
  • Prices start from $161,000. Now available to order. Deliveries begin Q2 2020

As you’d expect from a dedicated sports car, a choice of Sport, Sport + and Track chassis modes - also tuned specifically for the Roadster - give the driver control of its dynamic character and behavior. Working in harmony with Sport, Sport+ and Track powertrain modes retained from the Coupe offers the ability to progressively increase the car’s overall responsiveness and excitement, meaning the Roadster has a tremendous breadth of ability and feels equally at home on road or race track.

Experience a Rare and Timeless Masterpiece From Royal Salute

Own It
BY : JustLuxe Team | 2020

Inspired by the power of time, the limited edition Royal Salute The Time Series 52 Year Old Single Cask Finish is the finest addition to any collector’s repertoire. This winter the ‘King of Whisky’, Royal Salute, launches an ultra-rare, limited edition blend: The Time Series 52 Year Old Single Cask Finish. With only 106 bottles available, at a price tag of $30,000 a bottle, this luxury and exceptional Scotch has been expertly crafted by Royal Salute Master Blender Sandy Hyslop, using some of the oldest and most valuable whiskeys in the Royal Salute collection. A true collector’s item, the all-new expression is housed in a hand-blown Dartington Crystal decanter engraved with a unique number, sitting in a stunning box featuring five layers of wood, each representing a decade of the blend.

The Time Series 52 Year Old is a single cask finish blend with remarkable character that’s flawlessly balanced with a creamy sweet finish. The liquid is intensely fruity on the nose, with notes of ripe plum, toffee red apples and dark chocolate covered hazelnuts. The taste is enhanced with flavors of sweet orange marmalade with a hint of ginger and scented cloves intermingled with soft ripe pears in syrup and a tantalizing touch of licorice. Out of the 52 years of slow and patient maturation, the last 14 were spent in a single cask, which gave the whiskey a soft and creamy texture
