Bentley showcases the beauty of technology – in this case Bentayga’s wiring image

The Bentley Bentayga might be one of the earliest examples of ultra-luxury SUVs, but that doesn’t mean the hulking crossover is the best sight out there.

But sometimes the model can deliver quite beautiful shots. For example the fact that it’s a model overflowing with gadgets, some of them might actually turn into careful pieces of automotive art. For example the seats that electrically adjust in a myriad of direction are also heated, ventilated, and have massaging functions. The stereo system has up to 20 speakers. There’s also four-zone climate-control, fridge, radar sensors, cameras, a separate 48-volt system for the active roll control system. And all these gadgets need of course lots of raw power – no less than 90 computers. What we’re saying here is the electrical system of the Bentayga is a hulking project in itself.

So Bentley decided to showcase these CAD shots of the monumentally complex electrical system – while it looks like a true maze, you can actually make out the vehicle’s outline and the placement of all major parts. The harness itself is huge, it comes bundled on a pallet the size of the car – it’s extremely stiff, so it must be a nightmare stuffing all the wires in the tiny holes such elements live in. While heavy at 110 pounds, no two harnesses are alike – too many combinations result in different options most of the time, so the harness is custom built to each vehicle. So this is weirdly beautiful…
