The 2012 Bentley Mulsanne Executive Interior, found on Bentley's flagship line of ultra-luxury vehicles, was designed with the needs of two divergent populations in mind.
Given the "Theatre" and "iPad" designation respectively, each is designed with luxury, comfort, and flawless design in mind.
Both concepts come with similar design options such as a customized Tibaldi fountain pen and a blended wood veneer that epitomizes yachting.
But the Theatre specification is geared towards a consumer market who is seeking a peaceful place to unwind on the way home from work, whereas the iPad specification is for those who take their work on the go.
The Theatre interior has customized crystal champagne flutes along with two bottles of champagne kept cool in an easily accessible bottle chiller, to take the edge off the evening commute.
In terms of electronic amenities, there is a centrally mounted, 15.6-inch high-def LED screen which is suited for both DVD and Television viewing, along with a customized lighting option to ensure optimal illumination.
In addition to the centralized screen, each rear-seat occupant can enjoy a separate eight-inch screen with Bluetooth-linked headphones, mounted on the front headrests.
Work on the Go
For those for whose commute home is "business as usual", the iPad specification on the 2012 Bentley Mulsanne Executive interior has many enviable features. Each rear-seat passenger has an electronically controlled table covered in a soft hyde writing surface, with a fully functional embedded iPad equipped with a removable wireless keyboard.
Business people can also take advantage of the Apple Mac computer mounted in the trunk, with the drop-down LED screen serving as the display. With the twin USB ports located in the central console, it is possible to upload films, music and data for use during the journey.
Both the central screen of the Theatre interior and the writing tables of the iPad interior are designed with stowing capacities, ensuring that the 2012 Bentley Mulsanne Executive interior remains as functional as possible.
