Bentley has created a version of the classic Christmas carol, The Nutcracker, entirely from the sounds found in its carbon-neutral factory with the help of several skilled engineers and craftsmen. Sounds include leather scissors cutting, sewing machines whirring, as well as many other unique factory sounds.
Some other sounds used for the song’s recreation include wheel nut guns, paint sprayers, power windows being tested, doors opening and closing, and the many parts of a Bentley being slotted, screwed, and sewn into its place. It all starts with birds singing over the factory’s solar panels and ends with a sound that warms the heart of every engineer and craftsman: the roar of a kettle and the clink of a teaspoon in a cup.

Creating The Nutcracker using factory sounds highlights that when engineers walk through the factory, it’s not just what they see that matters, but the sounds they hear are also distinctive. Commenting on this, SC Lause, Director of Elves, Northern Europe, said: “Then it occurred to me that creating the Bentley Orchestra would be a unique way to celebrate the extraordinary skills of Bentley’s craftsmen, as well as showcasing its modern future. and sustainable. .”
In a separate development, Bentley recently teamed up with shoemaker Dominic Ciambrone, known as The Surgeon, to launch a limited edition line of 10 Bentley-inspired sneakers, all currently reserved for Mulliner customers and collectors. As part of the partnership, Bentley will also unveil the 1 of 1 Bentley x The Surgeon vehicle next month during design week at Art Basel Miami. In addition to the car, a buyer will also receive a matching 1-of-1 pair of sneakers: the ‘Bentley x The Surgeon adidas Forum Low’.
