BENTLEY SPOTTING

It's the Rolls-Royce of Bentley websites.

Oh My Ghost.

Ostrich leather has an interesting surface.
 
 
It's on my wife's favourite handbag:

But let's add a bit of 'Oz' - not 'Os':
 
Hey Joey.
 
 
 
And put it all in a car:
 

'Rolls-Royce Ghost by Carlex Design'

 
Here it is in a graveyard:
 
 
 
It's an interesting shade of green.
 
 
But inside you'll find Joey the 'roo and his feathered friend....
 
 
Woahhhh....!
Poor things.
 
 
 
 
 
 
Ghost save us all.
 
 
Here's GTspitit.com 's story on the car:

"Although Rolls-Royce offers the most demanding clients a number of configuration options inside of their luxury saloons, there are others which ask for more unique interior upgrades with a personalized character. Leather and upholstery specialists Carlex Design have exactly offered this in their latest project called 'Ghost Save the Queen'. "

 

(If you can read music, I assume these are the notes - Irvine)

"First of all the luxury car was painted in a deep green exterior color. In addition to the characteristic color, the inside offers numerous upgrades like a royal crown embroidered in the seats."

"The relief is completed by wool rugs with a pile length of 2.5 centimetres, chrome parts and the usage of luxury ostrich and extremely flexible kangaroo leather, which proved to be an ideal material for the piping. "

 

"The project took almost two months, but the effects are overwhelming, according to the Polish company.

(One month spent trying to find a willing Kangaroo and Ostrich....- Irvine)

 

 

I really shouldn't voice an opinion on this one.

It is quite unique and I think I sort of like it but in different colours maybe, possibly, kind of....

Ostrich leather has been used on many other Rolls-Royce and Bentley cars over the years. We're going to see how many more we can find. They're out there.

The notes in the dashboard appear to be the opening few bars of "God Save The Queen."
