Here’s another model from our lovery british mad folks. In 1997, Bridgell released, under it’s luxury brand, Orchid, the Belmond. It aimed at the selected clients with the most refined taste for luxury, sporting a silky smooth V12 under the bonnet, mated to a even smoother electronically controled gearbox, with AWD, so there’s nothing that can prevent you from reaching anyone’s manor. The back heated seats recline and slide back and forth, and also feature massagers. Most of the conforts from a high class hotel room can be found inside. The cabin is fully soundproof, including electromagnectic/vacuum operated door latches, so all the moments inside it can be lived in absolute silence. A high tech, fully adaptative suspension guarantees the smoothest ride possible, and to top it off, you can take your designer trimmed fur children with you, on a practical and luxurious compartment on the rear. The production was limited to 100 vehicles a year, and all the colours and textures inside and outside were fully customizable. It’s trully how peak land travelling looks and feels like. The model lasted untill 2007, when a new, even more luxurious and confortable sucessor was released. 897 units of this rare pearl were made, and most of them are still selling in auctions for about the same, or even more than the 200.000,00 G$ they were worth new.
