The World's Most Extraordinary Car Photograph

In order to promote the new Bentley Mulsanne, the celebrated auto brand has unveiled a photograph that outruns any previous car photo through sheer technological muscle power. It’s billed as The World’s Most Extraordinary Car Photograph, and that’s not just empty marketing hype, as the photo in question was taken with technology originally developed at NASA to photograph the surface of Mars.

The World’s Most Extraordinary Car Photograph shows a long shot of the Golden Gate Bridge, that can be zoomed in by the user all the way to a Bentley Mulsanne driving along the bridge, and then finally to a detailed view of the Bentley logo stitched on one of the headrests. That’s the kind of detail that 53 billion pixels will get you.

You can check out The World’s Most Extraordinary Car Photograph at Bentley’s website right here. If it fills you with the urge to own your own Bentley Mulsanne, it’s slightly cheaper than the Golden Gate Bridge at a little over $400,000. And you can watch a video about the photo below:
