he engineering and craftsmanship of the interior of the new Continental GT exemplifies the attention to detail involved in the creation of an all-new Bentley.
Key interior components are specified to a tolerance of just 0.1mm – twice the thickness of a human hair. For example, the chrome strip that runs across the main fascia is exactly 3.0 mm thick.
The new Côtes de Genève technical finish to the centre console is machined on aluminium just 0.6mm thick. This beautiful watch-inspired finish is created by machining the aluminium from side to side to create a linear pattern. Each row is 5 mm wide and machined at an angle to give a truly three-dimensional finish, with each pass of the machine making a minute step of 0.5 mm.
The new "Diamond Knurling" design is available for the iconic Bullseye vents, bezels and other primary control rotaries and not only gives a finely faceted visual impact but serves to provide a precise technical feel when operating the controls.
Two different seats are available – a standard seat with 12 ways of movement, and an optional enhanced seat with 20 ways of movement based on customer feedback. Specific foam chemistries have been developed for the new seats, tuning the foam hardness for each individual piece to balance spring, damping and durability characteristics.
Pneumatically actuated active bolsters provide lateral support for the driver and respond to cornering forces. During development, particular attention was paid to designing the system to avoid creasing the leather. The bolsters automatically deflate when the car is switched off, to allow for an easier egress.
