Photo: Square Pleats by Mansory

Auto Upholstery - The Hog Ring - Mansory Bentley Continental GT

When it comes to sewing pleats, square ones don’t rank very high in the category of difficulty — unless, of course, they’re noncontiguous.

The Le Mansory GT, a souped up Bentley Continental GT by German automotive tuning shop Mansory, features just that. Each of the squares sewn into its seat covers are separate, identical and mesmerizing.

Granted, they were likely stitched using a programmable sewing machine. Which is just as well, because I wouldn’t want to be the one who had to sew each one of those squares individually.

    Very nice work except for the ugly billboard on the headrest. Sorry to be so blunt but the block letters don’t belong on a Bentley headrest. Just my opinion.

    • I hear you about the block lettering. A more elegant font would have been better.

      However, I understand the billboard. People buy Mansory models because they’re Mansory and want to show it off. So they probably don’t get many complaints for that.
