Bentley showcased a technology-laden Bentley Mulsanne concept aimed at business executives at the Frankfurt motor show.
The Bentley Mulsanne Executive Interior Concept features Apple iPads, full internet access and a 15-inch drop-down LED screen for movie or television viewing.
The iPads, connected to Apple Bluetooth keyboards, are stowed on foldable wood veneer picnic tables in the Mulsanne’s rear cabin. An Apple Mini Mac stored in the boot enables integration of the iPads with the keyboard and enables films to be viewed. An iPod acts as a control panel in the rear console.
Bespoke control keys on the rear console operate the picnic tables, reading lights, operate the HD LED screen and select video and audio options. The armrest contains a limited-edition Tibaldi pen and privacy telephone handset, and the rear centre console has an illuminated bottle cooler with a double-glazed frosted glass door.
Multi-directional reading lights are provided for each rear passenger and can be operated with Apple devices, while the rear centre console features mood lighting.
A fully operational concept, the cabin took more than 170 hours to create.
