The Craft Behind Luxury: A Glimpse Behind Bentley's Craftsmanship

2021 Bentley Bentayga V8 Wheel

Quality and luxury are core tenets of the Bentley experience, with every model in the Bentley lineup exuding refinement and sophistication from the inside out. When you step inside a Bentley car, you’re transported to a thoughtfully adorned oasis on the Glendale roads, complete with handcrafted details and bespoke design. Learn more about what kind of materials make up Bentley’s hardware and discover how the craftspeople at the Bentley factory in Crewe, North-West England, create vehicles that deliver unforgettable driving experiences with this guide from Bentley Pasadena.

Bentley Quality Paints & Colors

When building your bespoke Bentley, the exterior paintwork is the first stop. Offering a wide range of colors, finishes, and Duo-Tone combinations, each Bentley becomes truly unique with the addition of one of the many pre-selected colors. Are you interested in personalizing your Bentley even further? The Bentley team also offers a digital color-matching option, allowing you to send in a sample of your favorite color to help you stand out on the Burbank streets. 

Choice is important, but nothing beats Bentley quality. Instead of using machines to paint, sand, and polish your vehicle’s exterior, the craftspeople at Bentley use a combination of machines and skilled manual work to sand and polish your new model. This skilled labor creates a finish unlike any other, with attention to detail applied to every inch of your Bentley’s hardware.

Inside a Bentley Car: Quality Materials & Artistry

The exterior of a Bentley is only the beginning. Learn more about some of the stunning work put into the cabin of your new Bentley below:

Veneers & Bespoke Marquetry

Bentley is renowned for its commitment to luxury and sustainability, and nowhere is that more apparent than in their selection of veneers. Boasting a wide range of real-wood veneers from sustainable sources, each veneer is carefully mirror-matched from the same section of a single tree for a continuous grain pattern around the cabin. Newer options, such as Dual Veneers and Carbon Fiber, offer even more ways to add a personal touch to your new Bentley. 

For enhanced individualized style, consider adding bespoke marquetry to your new Bentley. An age-old technique used for setting images into veneers, bespoke marquetry allows you to inlay your Bentley with contrasting wood, gold, mother of pearl, and more to create a custom image in your vehicle’s veneer.

Leather Hides, Stitching, & Embroidery

Bentley quality starts from the outside and moves inward, with special attention paid to the leather hides used for your seating. Inside a Bentley car, Los Angeles drivers will find no plastic leather substitutes, with every seat made out of leather hide that undergoes a full inspection before being cut and trimmed to suit your Bentley. 

Once the hide is prepared, the leather moves to our 120-member needlecraft team, who use a combination of sewing machines and hand-sewing to ensure equidistant stitching and perfect fit throughout the cabin. Custom embroidery is also available, offering a wide range of colors and stitch styles for your bespoke interior.
