The phones created by Vertu are much more than a simple mobile device that connects you to phone calls or messages. It’s an impossibly safe data storage device, a personal assistant, concierge, professional camera and holder of music from the London Symphony Orchestra, all while being crafted from the world’s finest materials and small enough to fit in your pocket.
It only makes sense that an automotive manufacturer that creates luxury models of the same quality caliber would partner with them. Bentley and Vertu formally announced July 7, 2014 that the two had entered a five-year partnership, with plans to create five new phones during that time. Today, a release from Bentley announced the second of those phones, the new Signature for Bentley.
Design was inspired by the Bentley Mulsanne Speed, with details like the carbon fiber pillow, polished stainless steel sides detailed with a knurled finish and Beluga Black calf leather, which was sourced from the same tannery that Bentley uses. Tying it all together is the Bentley Flying B Titanium emblem under the key pad.
It’s much more narrow than the Bentley Signature Touch phone released Oct. 15, 2014, making it perfectly sized to fit in any coat pockets. This new Signature will be officially launched Sept. 18, and when it is available for sale, buyers will find it to be far more customizable. Pricing has yet to be released.
As the release states, an online design configurator will be made available, with 2,300 possible combinations. This will allow the phone to better reflect each owner’s Bentley, further bringing the driving experience into other aspects of life.

It has been made available for pre-order beginning today, the same day it makes its debut at the Goodwood Festival of Speed.
