If you stand 700 metres away from the car you’re trying to photograph, it’s fair to say you’re doing it wrong. However, when Bentley did exactly that at the Golden Gate Bridge, it used the same technology used by the Mars Rover programme to stitch together hundreds of images, to create what it’s calling a 53 billion pixel image. And around about in the middle of it is the new Bentley Mulsanne Extended Wheelbase.

However, we do have to point out the detail only seems to focused on the portion in the middle you zoom in on when looking at the full ‘image’ on Bentley’s website, where new data loads every time you zoom in. Even if you could zoom in elsewhere, you aren’t going to have the same level of detail, so it’s not a ‘proper’ gigapixel image. Also, while we get that it’s supposed to zoom in on the Bentley logo on the passenger headrest, revealing all the individual stitches, when we look the logo isn’t in the middle, which is a bit of a fail.

Still, the image - or whatever you want to call it - is pretty cool. Check it out here.
