With all luxury marks that exudes class and style in the automotive world, Bentley is adding that extra something for those customers that want something a little different.
Thanks to the help of the Crewe-based firm’s custom coach building division, Mulliner, the ante has very much been raised, when it comes to specifying the interior of your Continental GT or Flying Spur.
Stone veneer is the latest fashion that Bentley and Mulliner have brought to the high quality interiors that the British car maker is renowned for. This finish, which is state-of-the-art, is made up of slate and quartztine stone that has been formed over the past 200 million years, hand-picked from selected quarries in Rajasthan and Andhra Pradesh, India.
Larger pieces of the stone sections are used, split apart and cured using a combination of glass fibre and a bespoke resin. This is before the dashboard stone veneer inlays, which are just 0.1mm thick, are shaped and hand-finished by Mulliner’s coachbuilding team at the Crewe headquarters.
The veneers themselves are also translucent, which allows the owner of the car to see the intricate pattern and elegant grain of the stone itself, which is available in four different colours:
- Autumn White
- Terra Red
Mulliner’s bespoke customisation team, who will deal with any enquiries that customers have, when it comes to individual requirements and requests, are the best people to speak to, if your Bentley requires that certain “je ne sais quoi.”
