The newest addition to Bentley's lineup fits in the back seat of the Continental GT. No, it's not that rumored two-seater they keep teasing. It's a set of golf clubs.

The new Tech Collection from Bentley Golf utilizes multi-material technology to maximize performance, not unlike what can be found in Bentley automobiles. The clubs are designed for everyone from a seasoned professional to a beginner.

The irons feature titanium faces and carbon-fiber backs. Both wedge options have CNC-milled face grooves and back cavities, with a rounded sole. The putter combines high-density steel, super-soft aluminium and carbon-fiber detailing that offers support for off-centre strikes.

Designers wanted to balance the appearance of the club with the traditional hallmarks of the Bentley brand and modern materials. Motifs from the new Continental GT appear on the club grips and faces in the form of Bentley's distinctive knurling. Bentley has employed the iconic styling-line of its car haunches in the crown and sole of the wood. Distinctive "B" screens are in place and the wood heads and grip ends feature replicas of the unique wheel centre from the famous Le Mans winer, the EXP Speed 8.

The clubs were revealed for the first time at the PGA Merchandise Show, Orlando in January 2020, and will be available to purchase this spring. To register interest in the clubs, visit www.bentleygolf.com.

A long-standing collaboration has resulted in two new audio system products. A Naim for Bentley Mu-so Special Edition wireless speaker for the home and the new Focal for Bentley Radiance headphones bring the high-quality sound of a Bentley vehicle audio system outside the vehicle.

The world's most powerful in-car sound system available in the market heightens Bentley's extraordinary drive with music that speaks to the heart.

Both products are distinctively Bentley in style and feature interior and exterior styling aspects of a number of Bentley vehicles including the Bentley Mulliner Bacalar and EXP 100 GT. The products both have a recurring lattice pattern that is inspired by the diamond shapes of Bentley's seat quilting.

Bentley Motors and Naim Audio have been associated since 2008. Their teams work together to optimize vehicle and audio system design to deliver a high-quality experience for owners. The new Radiance headphones are the debut collaboration between Bentley and Focal.

"Bentley, Naim and Focal share an enthusiasm for innovation, dedication to engineering excellence and a true passion that drives our respective areas of expertise.

A bespoke fabric was created to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the Range Rover.

Savile Row tailor Henry Poole & Co has created a unique jacket fabric to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the Land Rover Range Rover. The pattern was designed by Prof Gerry McGovern OBE, Land Rover's Chief Creative Officer.

Inspired by the original Range Rover color palette of Tuscan Blue, Bahama Gold, and Davos White, just 120 meters of the dog-tooth check lambswool fabric has been produced. That's enough to make just 50 bespoke jackets.

The fabric is woven in Somerset, England, by a Fox Brothers & Co Ltd.

Henry Poole will create the men and women's jackets from the Range Rover fabric, tailored to meet each customer's individual requirements.

The same colors that inspired the jacket pattern also are present on the Range Rover Fifty, a limited edition model that also celebrates the 50th anniversary of the SUV. Land Rover is building the special model on the Range Rover Autobiography SUV. It rides on unique 22-inch wheels, has "Fifty" script badging on the exterior and interior, and comes with a number of bespoke accents. Each SUV will be individually numbered.

Buyers can get the Range Rover Fifty in either a standard or long wheelbase body design. Customers can choose from four paint jobs: Carpathian Grey, Rosello Red, Aruba, and Santorini Black. A very limited quantity of models in Tuscan Blue, Bahama Gold, and Davos White heritage paint colors will be offered by Land Rover Special Vehicle Operations.

Just 1,970 Range Rover Fifty SUVs will be sold.

The partnership with Henry Poole & Co isn't the first fashionable endeavor Land Rover has been a part of this year. The Land Rover x Elliot Brown collaboration created one of the world's toughest watches. The watches were worn by four rowers - Oliver Dawe-Lane, Arthur Chatto, Harry Lidgely, and Charles Bromhead - who successfully rowed around 2,000 miles of U.K. coastline to raise money for the British Red Cross and JustOneOcean, an environmental charity.
