Bentley has created a 53 Gigapixel photo of their new Bentley Mulsanne EWB, the photo was taken using technology from NASA.
The photo took Bentley six months to plan and 6 days to shoot, it then took a further 2.5 months to retouch and optimize.
The image was created using technology originally developed by NASA to enable Mars rovers to take exploratory panoramic photographs. Viewers can use an innovative, interactive zoom function to travel from 700 metres out all the way into the Mulsanne’s cabin – right down to the 4,500 individual stitches in the embroidered ‘Winged B’ headrest logo.
An incredible 4,425 times larger than a typical smartphone image, this extraordinary photograph is made up of approximately 53 billion pixels (or 53,000 megapixels). It was created by taking 700 individual shots from the same location and ‘stitching’ them together digitally. The result, if reproduced in standard print format, would be the size of a football field.
