Bentley: Mushroom leather and jellyfish material will soon be an option for vegans

We do know that a few people are not into animal leather. In today’s world, more and more people are learning to stay away from leather or anything that would cost an animal’s life, and veganism is not just limited to what we consume.

So as an automotive company, how do you cope with this change? We know that they usually just offer fabric or leather to finish off the seats and the cabin of their cars. But guess what? Bentley is way ahead of its competitors and according to Stefan Sielaff, Director of Design, the company has already been exploring several vegan-friendly options for upholsteries and trims. This is part of their plan to produce more eco-friendly vehicles in the near future, and by that I don’t just mean hybrid or electric vehicles, though that is still part of the plan.

During the Financial Times Future of the Car Summit, Sielaff said that “you can’t sell an animal containing product like a Bentley, with 20 leather hides, to someone with a vegan lifestyle” - and clearly, this is where their idea rooted from. These customers ask the company for leather alternatives that they can offer, so if they want to make a sale, then they will have to keep up with changing trends. Even if this means they have to begin from research and development - just to keep customers satisfied, especially if your company offers custom-made solutions to customers.

Bentley is considering more Bentayga variants to stay competitive

Should Bentley come up with more variants of the Bentayga? Well, according to their CEO Wolfgang Durheimer, it seems that they should do that so they won’t get left behind by their rivals. In an interview with Autocar, Durheimer said that derivatives are important because of the urgency to be “the newest kid in town for customers”.

The British automaker has got some very exciting plans for its plans to expand its lineup. For instance, the company wants to build a quicker version of what is already out there. So what variants should we expect from Bentley? Well, they did a rendering of a coupe version so that’s likely to be on their plate. They also intend to produce a more potent GT3 R in line with the Continental that bears the same name.

But CEO Durheimer has made it clear that none of these ideas are certain yet.

Genesis G90 Special Edition is likely inspired by a Bentley

Genesis Motors, the luxury vehicle division of South Korean manufacturer Hyundai Motor Company, takes a step further from their usual designs as they unveiled the G90 Special Edition - a vehicle that represents a marriage of luxury and technology. Hyundai also announced new developments at the latest Seoul Motor Show this week.

Dressed in a two-tone paint finish, the G90 Special Edition showcased three different versions. The first one came in a metallic brown and matte grey combo, the other one was a matte grey and silver, and last but not the least, a metallic blue and solid white finish - all of these colour combinations were “inspired by a finely-tailored gentleman’s pin-stripe suit” according to the company.

We strongly feel like the South Korean automaker is shying away from conservative designs and instead is leaning towards something different this time. The Special Edition vehicle features an upgraded interior with Nubuck leather trim, accent stitching, upgraded carpeting, and more. While each of them has a hand-painted coach line running all around the sides of the vehicle’s exterior. At first glance, you would think it is a Bentley. You’ll just be surprised that it is a Genesis when you have a closer look. Perhaps it’s because the former design director of Bentley, Luc Donckerwolke, has been leading the design brand since early last year.

Bentley releases gigapixel image of Flying Spur W12 S in Dubai

As a child, most of us would’ve probably enjoyed going through numerous hunting expeditions trying to find the guy with the red-and-white striped shirt called Waldo or probably Ronald McDonalds hidden behind a post in a festival scene or something like that. You might also remember the moments when it took you hours of literally having to stick your face into the photo just to find them.

These things may sound oddly old school to the new generation as there are now new technological innovations such as the NASA-derived technology called the Gigapixel that allows people to zoom into an image further than what has been previously been possible.

One of the current users of this technology is none other than British automaker Bentley. Last year, Bentley set-up a special camera 2,300 feet away from the Golden Gate Bridge to snap a gigapixel image of the Mulsanne Extended Wheelbase crossing it. Seven hundred photos were taken from the same location and then stitched together into one photo.

We are all aware that certain models and configurations of the Tesla Model X, as well as the Bentley Bentayga, both cost over six figures. So, what if both models were combined together? Well, it had already been done by Tesla tuner, TSportline. It gave this Model X such a grand makeover that anyone on the roads will definitely do a double take.

With over $60,000 worth of customizations, the model is stunning. For instance, it has a bespoke Bentley Red leather interior - with perforated leather and signature diamond stitching. The interior alone costs $25,000. And it’s not just that of course, it comes with two-toned gloss carbon fiber and Bentley leather steering wheel that costs an additional $3,200, plus a gloss carbon fiber interior package, and extra thick hand-carved floor mats.

The sound system, which is priced at $11,500, is a Rockford Fosgate 3sixty.3 EQ Processor that can individually tune 13 component speakers to create the perfect sound. The good thing is that this custom sound system does not draw power from the battery system.

Slated for its premiere at the 2017 Geneva Motor Show this coming week, Bentley introduces the Bentayga Mulliner ahead of its timetable. And what have we got so far? Well, let’s just say there’s an optional gold clock worth 154,000 USD and a champagne cooler to go with it.

Bentley’s “ultimate luxury SUV” was built by the British marque’s Mulliner bespoke division --- just in case the standard Bentayga model’s well-appointed cabin isn’t enough to please everyone on board. And that’s even after considering the fact that a regular Bentayga SUV already costs $200,000 and comes with an impressive level of luxury.

But since there is always room for improvement, it only means Bentley is no exception. However, if judging from the overall exterior, there seems to be nothing new as compared to the standard version of the SUV. At least in terms of shape.

Bentley launched its Bentayga ultra-luxury SUV not too long ago. In fact, the Bentley Bentayga is still on its second model year, following its introduction in 2015 as a 2016 model. It quickly became a symbol of true opulence as it perfectly combines power, luxury and grandeur. However, if you think that the Bentley Bentayga has become old news or just needs some extra frills, you can always turn to Lumma Design.

Based in Winterlingen, Germany, Lumma Design has been known for creating customized elements for different vehicles of different builds and makes. For the Bentley Bentayga, Lumma Design has created an exclusive wide body kit for both the SUV’s W12 petrol and diesel versions.

This customized creation -- called as Lumma Design CLR-B900 Wide-Body kit – further heightened the grandeur of the Bentley Bentayga. Likewise, this Lumma Design CLR-B900 Wide-Body kit made the Bentley Bentayga appear wider, resulting to a more imposing presence on the road.

On the surface, a luxurious Bentley with a Startech body kit may seem to be an unlikely combination. But on second thought, a heavily customized Bentley Bentayga in special Verdant Green body color ticks all the boxes of what you’d look for in an unconventional high performance vehicle.

Startech is a subsidiary of the more popular Brabus after-market tuning company. Brabus has been specializing in high end brands such as Maybach and Mercedes-Benz. The company has also ventured into tuning Smart Automobiles which is the compact car division of Daimler AG. On the other side, Startech has been known for customizing off-road vehicles like those coming from Range Rover, Land Rover and Jaguar. The Bentley Bentayga as we know is the most expensive and luxurious sport utility vehicle in the UK.

In case you’re wondering how it all went, the odd combination of a Bentley in green color and Startech’s exterior upgrades has turned into something marvelous. By all means, the owner of this Verdant Green Bentayga would be more than pleased to see the final result.

When Bentley Motors unveiled the EXP 9 F luxury SUV concept at the 2012 Geneva Auto Show, not a few expected the British carmaker to launch a premium SUV sooner or later. Because of the interest vested in what could be the world’s first luxury SUV, this concept paved the way for the introduction of the Bentley Bentayga premium SUV a few years later.

Bentley followed up the EXP 9 F luxury SUV show car by unveiling the EXP 10 Speed 6 luxury sports coupe concept at the 2015 Geneva Auto Show. Given the reception for this two-seater luxury sports car, it wouldn’t be surprising if Bentley does decide to introduce a production version. Likewise, considering Bentley’s history, it wouldn’t be a big surprise if the luxury sports coupe would have its own convertible version.

To see whether a coupe convertible from Bentley would make a business case – at least visually – it could be better if the EXP 10 Speed 6 luxury sports coupe concept has an open top variant. As for a graphical representation of a convertible variant of the EXP 10 Speed 6 luxury coupe concept, we could turn to visual artists specializing in automotive renderings. One of these artists is rc-workchop.

Sometimes, being on top isn’t enough, especially for this Bentley Bentayga, which has been thoroughly tinkered by German tuning firm DMC. In terms of the fusion of power and luxury in the SUV world, the highly premium Bentley Bentayga could be considered as the authority.

Aside from its luxurious and technology laden bespoke interior and its hegemonic exterior, the Bentley Bentayga deserves to be called the most powerful SUV thanks to its potent core -- a monstrous 6.0-liter twin-turbocharged W12 engine.

This W12 engine can deliver up to 600 hp (447 kW) of output and up to 663 lb.-ft. of peak torque, allowing the Bentayga to sprint from a standstill to 60 mph in just 4.0 seconds and eventually reach a top speed of 187 mph (300 km/h). Massive, isn’t it? For DMC, however, it wasn’t enough. That is why this German tuner decided to place its stakes higher and create what it dubbed as the DMC Bentley Bentayga "Gigante."

Bentley once again confirmed its plans to push PHEV into their future lineups. As a matter of fact, the Bentayga SUV will be the first to have the plugin hybrid technology, which will also be using a V6 engine. Next on the line would be none other than the new generation Bentley Continental GT. And there’s more to come.

During a recent press interview with Automotive News, Wolfgang Duerheimer reiterated the fact that plugin hybrids no longer serve as “temporary bridge technology”. Instead, it now offers the best features of both cars with internal combustion engine as well as those of electric powered vehicles.

The CEO also considers the fact that the upcoming plugin variants would be their answer to the consumers who want to use their cars to go to places where gasoline and diesel engines would no longer be allowed.

British carmaker Bentley wasn’t joking when it said it would introduce the “most extreme Bentley ever.” Here it is, the new 2017 Bentley Continental Supersports. Aside from being Bentley’s most extreme model in terms of acceleration and speed, the new Bentley Continental Supersports is now the world’s fastest four-seat model.

The introduction of the new Continental Supersports shows that Bentley has yet to be done with the current generation of the Continental GT.

As we expected, “the most extreme Bentley ever” ultimately points to the Continental Supersports’ awesome performance on the road that could even dominate other four-seaters in terms of speed and acceleration.

Bentley will be launching the next generation of its Continental GT coupe sometime late this year. This has got us very excited. After all, the current generation of the Continental GT has been in existence for nearly six years. It’s high time that Bentley introduces a new generation of its grand tourer.

But it seems Bentley isn’t done yet with the current generation of the Continental GT – the second one as it plans to unveil a new version that would render the previous Bentleys speechless. In fact, Bentley has released a short video clip that teases the newest – and probably the last – iteration of the second-gen Continental GT. This version has been dubbed by the British carmaker as the most “the most extreme Bentley ever,” which could ultimately point to its performance on the road. All will be known when Bentley takes the wrap off this latest vehicle on January 6, 2017.

While the short video teaser didn’t say something about this Bentley being a Continental GT, the Continental GT is the only current model that allows the marque to push its performance limits further. We could speculate that the model shown on the teaser video is the Continental Supersports. The first generation of the Continental GT features a Supersports version. The Continental Supersports was the most powerful version of the first-gen Continental GT, with its 6.0-liter W12 twin-turbo engine providing 621 hp (630 PS or 463 kW) of max output at 6,00 rpm and 800 Nm (590 lb.-ft.) of torque available at 1,700 rpm.

Having a blacked-out Bentley Mulsanne Speed is already menacing by itself but by naming it as the Bamford X, it became all the more imposing. This model was made by the brand’s very own bespoke department Mulliner, and was developed specifically for JCB heir and watch customizer George Bamford.

In terms of dimensions alone, the Bamford X is showing that it is not something you play around with. Overall length stands at 5,575 mm (219.5 in.) with total width of 1,926 mm (75.8 in.) and height at 1,521 mm (59.9 in.).

Looking at the exterior, the Bamford X follows a black-on-black theme, which is the signature of many of the Bamford Watch Department’s customized timepieces. For the bodywork, the brand made sure to give it that Beluga black finish. Much like the color scheme, this color is similar to what Bamford gets during the different processes like Graphite Particle Coating and Military Grade Titanium Coating.

Known for its luxurious bespoke interiors, the Bentayga's $275,000 price tag seems to be worth every penny for some people. However, Bentley happens to have overlooked something very important while assembling the production model for its latest Bentayga SUV. As it turns out, the bolts on the posh vehicle’s seat mechanism and dashboard were not properly secured. (tsk, tsk)

We know for a fact that a loosely tightened screw could compromise the vehicle’s overall safety. Over time, the frequent vibrations could make it lose its alignment completely. This is not something you’d expect from an SUV that costs an arm and a leg. Among Bentley’s bespoke interior add-ons include a fishing set, a Breitling tourbillon clock and a Linley hamper set that you can stuff with an exclusive picnic menu from Gloucestershire England’s Daylesford organic farm.

Only this year, Bentley added a new engine range for its famous Bentayga model. The Bentayga diesel comes with 4.0 litre V8 turbo charged direct injection engine. It uses the same powerplant as that of Audi’s SQ7 SUV. Thus, allowing it to produce as much as 429 hp and 664 lb-ft of torque. Basically, the Bentayga diesel can go from zero to one hundred kilometres per hour in less than 5 seconds, with top speed reaching 168 miles per hour.

When BMW revealed its X7 SUV, the goal was to make it a rival not only to the Range Rover but also to the GLS from Mercedes-Benz. The brand however appears to be taking it to the next level as a possible contender versus the Bentley Bentayga as BMW unveiled plans of coming out with a 4-seater version.

Given the change from a 7-seater to a 4-seater, this means that this new version will offer additional space for the two passengers sitting in the back. However, this is not the only change as some features of the exterior have been modified with the interior getting an upscale treatment.

BMW said though that even if the two versions of the X7 will be manufactured alongside the Rolls-Royce SUV, the former will be using a different platform altogether. Mainly the X7 will utilize the 7-Series as it will also be using the 6-cylinder engine or the 8-cylinder unit. It will be combined with an electric powertrain and maybe even a V12.

Many are now likely acquainted with the Linley hamper that can easily be slotted to the trunk of the Bentley Bentayga. As if to highlight a good use for this hamper, organic farm Daylesford created a picnic menu which, according to Bentley, highlights the fall produce that comes from Daylesford’s farm located in Gloucestershire, England.

The menu itself has a number of really delicious offerings that include a carved pumpkin that has been stuffed with green kale, crispy bacon, apples, and toasted seed, with honey mustard dressing added to it. Other offerings include the buckwheat tabbouleh; chocolate praline slices, and lemon and raspberry gateau; raspberry macaroons with buttercream filling; red kuri squash, chilli, and chickpea cakes; roasted squash and balsamic red onion tartlets; and wild mushroom, truffle, and gruyere arancini. Indeed, looking at all of these, delicious may not be enough of a word to describe it.

According to Chef Fuller, late autumn is always a good period for Daylesford as it becomes teemed with a number of produce. Since it is during this period that the weather starts to grow cold, Fuller revealed that they wanted to focus on the strong and earthy flavors of the farm’s many types of beetroot, squash, and pumpkin. Each of which has been grown during the summer months using rich organic soil. Through the use of careful slow cooking methods, he added, the subtle sweetness of these produce is brought out. Combined with game, wild mushrooms, or even grass pastured beef, the end result is an excellent way to celebrate the season.

For many people, the word Bentley generally refers to luxury, beauty, and refinement. A good example of this is the 2017 Bentayga which was first revealed back in 2015. While undoubtedly the most expensive SUV on the market, it also boasts of being the fastest with electronically limited speed at 187 mph.

However for Germany-based Mansory, this was clearly not enough as the celebrated tuning company has taken a shot at the 2017 Bentayga and has come out with a version that does away with the English country feel and instead brings with it a look that’s much sportier and far more exciting.

It was back in May of this year when Mansory first offered a glimpse of how they would approach the 2017 Bentayga. Then they showed a grille and hood made of carbon fiber and fitted with the 23-inch multi-spoke wheels. While there was no word on the interior, there was a promise that inside would be a mix of carbon fiber, wood, Alcantara, and high-quality leather.

Bentley Motors has just released the specs of the new Bentayga Diesel. Obviously, we couldn’t wait to share it here since it’s the first ever diesel model to come out of the British brand’s long automotive history.

To begin with, the diesel-powered SUV bears the world’s most powerful and fastest V8 powertrain. It goes without saying how Bentley’s highly advanced technology and expertise have helped them create this astonishing 32-valve, 4Litre, triple-charged diesel engine.

The Bentayga Diesel can go from 0-100km/h in just 4.8 seconds with top speed of 270km/h. It also makes a very good 429bhp and 664lb-ft of torque unlike anything that is already there.

Bentley Motors is now unveiling the Flying Spur W12 S, the new flagship of its Flying Spur range. The Flying Spur W12 S is power, luxury and style fused into a single four-door Bentley. It is targeted towards customers seeking a more athletic Bentley that boasts of more power, torque and responsiveness.

In fact, this new Flying Spur flagship is powerful enough to cruise over 200 mph – making it the fastest Flying Spur to date. This sterling performance is thanks to its 6.0-liter, twin-turbo W12 engine that has been calibrated and tuned to deliver 635 PS (626 bhp) of max output (plus 10 PS) and 820 Nm (605 lb. ft.) of peak torque (plus 20 Nm), available from just 2,000 rpm.

Technically speaking, this amount of power allows the Flying Spur W12 S to achieve a top speed of 325 km/h (202 mph), with the ability to dash from zero to 100 km/h in just 4.5 seconds (0-60 mph in 4.2 seconds). Power from the twin-turbo W12 engine is translated to speed through the all-wheel-drive system. Thanks to a 40:60 rear-biased torque split, the Flying Spur W12 S is able to deliver sporty and dynamic driving experience in any road and weather condition.
