It’s couture meets technology meets luxury wheels – and we’re a little bit in love with it

Sure, it's not a conundrum many of us have faced - we're talking how to accessorise with your Bentley - but if you ever find yourself in that oh-so-exclusive category, may we suggest this: the brand new Vertu Signature Touch for Bentley smart phone.

It's actually the third model Bentley and mobile manufacturer Vertu have released and it follows the runaway success of its predecessors - apparently, there really is a market for this kind of thing. But if you were umming and aahing over the first two, you're going to be glad you waited, as this latest model has the best bells and whistles by far.

Cloaked in two-tone Beluga and Hotspur Bentley leather with Hotspur stitching and the Bentley logo in miniature, the new phone can be completely customised, with eight leather colours and 16 stitching options to choose from (so you can coordinate perfectly with your car upholstery, should you wish), as well as personalised engraving. It also boasts Dolby Digitual Plus surround sound technology, the most vibrant display screen ever made by Vertu and an app exclusive to Bentley customers. No word on the price tag just yet - but we're guessing it's a strictly POA situation.
