Bentley Bentayga EWB Will Make Public Debut in September
The Bentayga EWB defines the benchmark for combining world-class luxury and technological innovation whilst demonstrating new heights of craftsmanship and comfort. Over 132 hours are required to handcraft the new Bentley flagship by the skilled craftspeople at home of Bentley’s carbon neutral factory in Crewe, England. The new model showcases lofted quilting, intricate veneer and metal overlays, and offers a unique interior ambience with Bentley’s Diamond Illumination.
Over 50% of customer orders include the Bentley Airline Seat Specification or Bentley Diamond Illumination, whilst circa 30% of customers include the extended paint range, metal overlays in the veneer and open pore wood. All demonstrating the importance of the hand craftsmansip at Crewe.
Bentley’s quilting has been reimagined in a new design. Developed and executed through a combination of digital craftsmanship and precision technology, the symmetrical pattern at the top of the seat backs stretches the diamonds as they move away from the centre line of the seats. The doors boast an asymmetric pattern that accentuates the length of the door and the rear cabin as a whole.
Shaping and polishing wood veneer to tolerances measured in tenths of a millimetre bring an intricate, beautiful element of natural luxury to the cabin. The wood set in each Bentayga EWB takes over 10 hours to curate, and will see the first use of the Metal Overlay in Veneer feature in series production for the class-leading SUV.
A further optional feature introduced for Bentayga EWB is Bentley Diamond Illumination. The illumination effect is achieved using a total of 68 LEDs that emit light through small perforations 1 mm in diameter in the leather trim on the door panels.
New features like Bentley Diamond Illumination demonstrate how technology combines with contemporary craftsmanship to deliver incredibly modern design in luxurious materials. With 24 billion trim combinations alone (and a total number of possible specifications running into the trillions), the cabin of the Bentayga Extended Wheelbase is capable of offering the most individual Bentayga ever.
