We live in a world where everybody wants everything specially individualized and brand new. That's just where the markets for almost about every product have gone. Take what we eat for example.
After hearing all those fast food places make bullshit claims about "made fresh, built-to-order, personally selected," it's easy to glaze over when you hear other commercials and advertisements saying something about hand-made or hand-built. It's like we've just come to expect lies from companies trying to tell us how everything is organic or real (heads up, it's actually not). Now, try to stay with me as I compare disgusting supersized value meals to some of the most luxurious cars in the world.
Statement of the century: Bentleys are not hamburgers.
Who knew? What I'm getting at is that when Bentley tells you that its leather is individually tested and hand-stitched and that these care are carefully built by the hands of experienced artists, they aren't kidding. How do you think those seats with those gorgeous cross stitching patterns came to be? How do you think the gorgeous designs in the veneers were created crafted? With an extremely set of steady hands, a flat chisel, an exacto knife, some tape, and a lined table, that's how. I watched, as a gentleman demonstrated the process of shaping the ash, eucalyptus, burr walnut, or chestnut wood (those are just a few of the options).
Take an up-close look at these men at work (we even got to thread a few stitches!) and check out the rest of the all-new 2014 Bentley Flying Spur. We'll let you know what we think of the ride when take a test drive.
