Redefining open-air driving, Bentley Motors unveils Bentley’s Grand Convertible. A true beauty in Sequin Blue, originally a bespoke color created from one single sequin from a customer’s haute couture gown, the Grand Convertible features a silver “liquid metal” finish to the bonnet and windscreen frame. Elegant beyond compare, and as breathtaking as it is luxurious, the interior of the Grand Convertible is a showcase to the abilities of Bentley’s master craftsmen. Fourteen naturally tanned leather hides are merged together with progressive diamond quilting – the shape of the pattern changing over the seats and doors in the cabin. Bright blue is used to highlight the extraordinary skill of Bentley’s trim specialists, cross stitched by hand, the linen colored leather with sequin blue thread contrast the light hide. Beluga leather around the top of the doors, frame the polished chrome and contrast the entire rear tonneau. The tonneau itself provides the most significant example of Bentley craftsmanship. Mirror finished and dark stained Burr Walnut fashioned entirely by hand can only be compared to the creations of the world’s best furniture makers.
The Bentley Grand Convertible will be on display at the Los Angeles Auto Show from November 19, 2014 and then at Art Basel in Miami.
