To deliver a fine in-cabin experience, Bentley has used advanced computer-aided technology to eliminate noise, vibration and harshness (NVH). With this, Bentley says that it continues to fulfil its founder W.O. Bentley’s aim of creating a high-performance luxury car with a quiet cabin. When he launched the 8-Litre in 1930, he said, “I have always wanted to produce a dead silent 100mph car, and now I think that we have done it."

Among the standard in-car features, the onboard air ionisers emits negatively charged particles from the central air conditioning vents of the cabin, enhancing air purity in the surroundings. The new wood veneer options for the cabin include open-pore veneer finished with an ultra-thin matt lacquer solely for protection. Crown Cut Walnut, Dark Burr Walnut and Koa veneers have been made available in an open-pore finish for customers to choose from.

Apart from the final product, Bentley has also made significant changes in the manufacturing procedure. As part of its sustainable goal, advanced virtual design processes have been utilised in the testing and production cycles of the third generation Flying Spur, reducing the need to manufacture physical parts. Virtual Prototyping also helps achieve zero-waste in test phase. The company's ultimate goal is to be end-to-end carbon neutral by 2030.

The virtual process also saved time as well as helped engineers keep the vehicle's weight to a minimum while increasing its agility to offer a driver-focused experience. "By using Virtual Prototyping, Bentley succeeded in what we set out to do –optimise every component of the Flying Spur firstly in the virtual world before we create physical parts," says Simon Noble, Acoustic Engineer at Bentley Motors.
