The highlight of the interior is the cascading rear center console finished in dark veneer. The console houses a bottle chiller, double-folding writing tables & a mobile phone compartment. Additionally, concealed within the the console are remote controls for the Bentley’s office and entertainment systems.

The mobile office & entertainment system consists of a TV tuner, DVD player, Sony PS2, twin Sony VAIO notebooks & a central in-board computer. Twin LCD monitors fitted to the back seats fold out and can display any peripheral device.

An Infra-red keyboard with integrated mouse is specifically crafted to tuck away in the front seat. The keyboard controls the central computer which is responsible for internet access and e-mail.
