As rare wood is becoming more common on premium cars and is not exclusive anymore, Bentley came up with a great ideea. The option of inserting stones in your Continental`s dashboard. Sounds crazy?

It is real. Bentley Motors’ bespoke coach-building division, Mulliner, is introducing the next level of automotive luxury: stone veneers.

The slate and quartzite stone is sustainably sourced from hand-selected quarries in Rajasthan and Andhra Pradesh, India – a nation with an ancient and rich culture of stone masonry. The sections of stone are split from larger pieces and cured using glass fibre and a bespoke resin. Finally, they are shaped and hand finished by Bentley’s world-renowned Mulliner coachbuilding team at the company’s headquarters in Crewe, England.

And if you thought this will weight a lot to a car that is already heavier than an elephant, think again. The stone surfaces of the veneers are just 0.1 mm thick, meaning that they are both extremely light and translucent, allowing the elegant grain and pattern in the stone to be visible to the interior occupants.

Mulliner is now offering Stone Veneers in a natural finish, in four different colours on Continental and Flying Spur: Galaxy, Autumn White, Terra Red and Copper. 

But, if you have enough money and as with any bespoke feature, customers that are interested in Stone Veneers can get in touch with Mulliner’s bespoke team, and they promise will work with each individual to discuss their unique requirements.
