Bentley has released a new photo of the Mulsanne Extended Wheelbase, but this isn’t any ordinary picture. Called the ‘gigapixel’ image, Bentley says it is 4,425 times larger than a typical smartphone image and contains about 53 billion pixels (53,000 megapixels).
Thanks to its large size, viewers can use a zoom function to look from a large panorama of the Golden Gate Bridge all the way into the interior of the Bentley driving across it. Using NASA technology, a powerful camera took 700 individual photos which were stitched together into this image. If the photo were to be produced in standard print format, it would be as large as a football field.
“Nowhere is Bentley’s famed attention to detail better demonstrated than with our new Mulsanne,”said Kevin Rose, Bentley’s board member for sales and marketing. “We wanted to commission this shot to capture both the exquisite detailing of the Mulsanne and the epic scale of our brand’s ambitions. We believe the result is truly extraordinary.”
The car is finished in Rose Gold over Magnetic duo-tone.
