After modeling, all the parts were manufactured. 1,846 individual parts are designed again and 230 of these parts were assemblies, that means thousand needed fixings and also the interior trim parts are included. After building up the Blower Car Zero, the endless tests were started. Bentley’s Director of Mulliner, Paul Williams is really excited by the work and also added:
The very latest digital design techniques came together with genuine artisanal hand-crafted artistry – often using manufacturing methods true to the 1920s. It’s only through this fusion of old and new that we could craft these cars, with the skills of our engineers mirrored in those of our specialist suppliers
