3D Gold Batur - 1

One of the most attention-grabbing details in the upcoming Bentley Mulliner Batur is the use of 18ct yellow gold in the car's cabin. What makes it really unique is the company's use of additive manufacturing to produce these pieces. Recycled from old jewelry that has been ground into a fine powder, Bentley enlisted the help of the goldsmiths over at Cooksongold in Birmingham, England, who hand finished the gold after the pieces were 3D printed. These gold elements are used in the 'Charisma Dial' (above), the Organ Stop vent controls, and in the steering wheel.
