Bentley Just Unveiled The World’s Highest-Definition Car Photo


Bentley has released a new photo of the Mulsanne Extended Wheelbase, but this isn’t any ordinary picture.

Called the ‘gigapixel’ image, Bentley says it is 4,425 times larger than a typical smartphone image and contains about 53 billion pixels (53,000 megapixels).

Thanks to its large size, viewers can use a zoom function to look from a large panorama of the Golden Gate Bridge all the way into the interior of the Bentley driving across it. Using NASA technology, a powerful camera took 700 individual photos which were stitched together into this image. If the photo were to be produced in standard print format, it would be as large as a football field.

“Nowhere is Bentley’s famed attention to detail better demonstrated than with our new Mulsanne,”said Kevin Rose, Bentley’s board member for sales and marketing. “We wanted to commission this shot to capture both the exquisite detailing of the Mulsanne and the epic scale of our brand’s ambitions. We believe the result is truly extraordinary.”

The car is finished in Rose Gold over Magnetic duo-tone.

    Too bad it still looks like a bad ’70s-style pimpmobile conversion of a 2008-2012 Malibu.

    I guess thanks for telling me about the picture, but I kinda hoped it would be included in the article…

    It is included. It’s the picture of the Golden Gate Bridge.

    I think, it is fake, not real 53b pixel photo. If it is real, I want to see details of the bridge on the far side, not only the car. I do commercial gigapixel photography, and I am sure that you can’t make selective focus at this distance, i.e. when the moving car is in perfect focus and the bridge is blurred around. The gigapixel photo might have been used to create this advertising, but it is definitely not real 53b pixel art.

    So they created an insanely high resolution picture that far exceeds the max resolution of any monitor, printer, etc. *smh* There’s no practical reason for that, except to use it as a marketing gimmick that the writer of this article obviously fell for.

    Wish I could have seen the picture on my Turbo2 phone, but, to many ads covered the picture. Guess ads are more important than article.
