as well as the effortless performance, the bentley ‘grand convertible’ is matched in style because of its hand-polished silver liquid metal finish to the bonnet and windscreen, and the sequin blue color to the right and left sides. the interior also reflects this elegance and the abilities of the motor company’s craftsmen with the progressive-diamond quilted, naturally tanned leather hides that are used for the seats and doors. the light hide which has sequin blue thread cross-stitched through, contrasts with the beluga leather around the top of the doors and extends to the rear. at the back, the tonneau represents automotive tailoring to its highest with the hand-applied book-matched, mirror-finished and dark-stained burr walnut wood veneer.
