Watch: Gorgeous Bentley Video Shot with iPhones and Edited Using Mulsanne’s Built-In iPads

Bentley Mulsanne

Those gorgeous leather-wrapped mechanisms that deploy iPad minis and matching keyboards from the front seatbacks in a Bentley Mulsanne—part of the $27,640 Entertainment Specification package—aren’t just the most expensive way for rich blokes to play Candy Crush Saga. Turns our they’re for rich blokes to . . . edit car commercials. Bentley shows off this use in a beautiful black-and-white spot narrated by Bentley’s head of exterior design and director of design; it was shot entirely using iPhone 5S phones and edited on the iPad minis in the Mulsanne’s back seat. (It came to our attention via PetaPixel.)

Bentley Mulsanne

There really isn’t a better way, we think, to show off the productivity-enhancing qualities of a rear-seat iPad setup—or the insane capabilities of iPhones. While we assume well-to-do businesspeople are surely tickled (and massaged) by the Mulsanne’s rear-seat accommodations, we’d still go for the front seat. After all, the Mulsanne might weigh more than 6000 pounds, but one we tested hit 60 mph in 4.9 seconds. An iPad can do many things, but it can’t do that. And it doesn’t have 505 horsepower, either.
