If it’s one thing the English are good at when it comes to the automotive industry, it’s that they have a knack for creating the world’s most iconic grand tourers. One brand in particular has just entered its 100th year of creating luxury GTs for the discerning to enjoy. Bentley was founded on July 10, 1919, under the helm of W.O. Bentley.
In celebration of their century of automotive creation, Bentley has released a short film called “Together we are Extraordinary: The Story of Bentley Motors”. Inspired by a single piece of aluminum, engineer W.O. Bentley had taken his first steps towards the company’s success in innovation, craftsmanship, and motorsports, creating a revolutionary aluminum piston design. His goal, in his own words was to build “a fast car, a good car, the best in its class”.
In the film you’ll see real actors that were 3D scanned and turned into metal sculptures. You’ll even recognize a few Bentley Motorsport greats, such as Wolf Barnato, three time Le Mans winner, and Sir Tim Birkin, racing driver and fighter pilot. Gorgeous visuals and computer generated imagery is courtesy of Oscar-winning visual effects company, The Mill, also responsible for a wide portfolio of short films ranging from automotive brands, to causes that support United Nations initiatives. Also impressive is the fact that the entire film was shot using a 4K ALEXA Mini camera with the help of custom rigs.
You’ll also see iconic Bentleys used in motorsports, and the storied success that the marque has had all the way up to their flagship vehicle, the Continental GT. The film is also inspired by the excellent level of craftsmanship and materials used that are found in every Bentley that rolls off the manufacturing line.
