Bentley has unveiled a groundbreaking ‘gigapixel’ image, featuring the new Mulsanne Extended Wheelbase in Rose Gold over Magnetic duo-tone crossing San Francisco’s iconic Golden Gate bridge. The image was created using technology originally developed by NASA to enable Mars rovers to take exploratory panoramic photographs. Viewers can use an innovative, interactive zoom function to travel from 700 metres out all the way into the Mulsanne’s cabin – right down to the 4,500 individual stitches in the embroidered ‘Winged B’ headrest logo.
An incredible 4,425 times larger than a typical smartphone image, this extraordinary photograph is made up of approximately 53 billion pixels. It was created by taking 700 individual shots from the same location and ‘stitching’ them together digitally. The result, if reproduced in standard print format, would be the size of a football field.
Designed for customers with a preference for being driven, the Bentley Mulsanne Extended Wheelbase featured in the gigapixel shot offers a first-class air-travel experience for the road. The 250 mm extension of the Mulsanne’s wheelbase is entirely to the benefit of rear-seat passenger legroom. To make the best use of the additional rear legroom, Bentley has developed airline-style electronic legrests which are integrated into the bases of the two rear seats. These extend outward and pivot, affording rear-seat passengers the luxury of choice between upright, relaxed and reclined seating positions.
