Ahead of the release of Bentley’s Flying Spur, the company have unveiled an interactive image of Dubai – clocking in at 57.7billion megapixels. The campaign invites users to move around the scene in order to locate their latest car model.
The team suspended a camera 264 meters up the Cayan Tower (where else?!) in order to create what is now officially the world’s most detailed landscape image. A whopping total of 1,825 individual frames were electronically stitched together in order to produce the final result.
As you can imagine, there were numerous obstacles encountered during the shooting process – for one, the camera had to cope with 40°C heat which was creating a haze, as well as 25 km/h wind. Bentley reportedly approached NASA for the tech to take the picture.
Zooming in on the photo will reveal a Bentley Flying Spur W12 S parked at the marina. So high is the image resolution that you can actually get so close to the car’s badge to read it despite the camera being so far away.
Bentley have previously created a 53 billion pixel image of the Muslanne on Golden Gate Bridge in California.
