This year marks a century of business for British automaker Bentley. The newest offering from the company declaring the company centenary is a series of limited-edition coffee-table-sized books.
“The Bentley Centenary Opus” is priced at $3,800, and features a blend of photographs and narratives chronicling the brand’s history. In fact, there’s so much Bentley lore included in the book that its curb weight is a whopping 66 pounds. The book is bound in the premium leather used in Bentley’s cabins, and its print run is limited to just 500 copies.
Those looking for an even more limited choice can opt for the $16,000 Mulliner Edition. Limited to 100 examples, the book boasts a handmade clamshell case complete with an engine spin finish, Bentley CEO Adrian Hallmark’s signature, and a piece of the rubber from the vehicle that won the 2003 24 Hours of Le Mans race.
In true Bentley style, there’s an even more limited version, the Carat Edition, which is available for around $256,000. Production of the luxurious tome is limited to seven, and each book will boast a cover clad with 100 carats of diamonds.
