Bentley’s Perfect Connections
First shown at the 2011 Frankfurt Show, the Mulsanne Executive Interior Concept has now become a reality, thanks to a very enthusiastic response from customers. Whether you’re after business-focused specs or you simply want your car to be a relaxing space to watch films and television, listen to music or enjoy the internet, Bentley can oblige.
Specify the Theatre package and rear-seat passengers can enjoy DVD movies or TV on a centrally located HD LED screen. Alternatively, you might prefer separate 8-inch screens on the back of each headrest, so that each passenger can lose themselves in the entertainment of their choice, listening through Bluetooth headphones. And business folk can justify the package as the HD LED screen can be used to display information from the boot-mounted Apple Mac computer. The passenger can navigate the technology by means of an iPod touch and, in case you need to unwind after a hard journey’s work, the frosted door of the Bentley designed, luxury bottle cooler (with space for two full-size Champagne bottles) slides open at the touch of a button to reveal three hand blown and hand-cut lead crystal champagne flutes, highlighted by white LED accent lighting.
Select the iPad package, meanwhile, and two electrically deployed veneered picnic tables provide a soft hide writing surface for rear-seat passengers. This time, the press of a button sees twin iPads with wireless keyboards revealed, so that each passenger can work (or play) quite separately.
Both the Theatre and iPad Specifications of Mulsanne Executive Interior can be ordered with some sumptuous finishing touches – such as a Tibaldi fountain pen hand-veneered to match the car, and discreetly stowed in a dedicated dock in the centre armrest.
