Bentley is turning 100 years old and to celebrate, the luxury British automaker has unveiled three limited books entitled The Bentley Centenary Opus. Bentley has teamed up with a luxury publisher, Opus to compile the books that are every bit as collectible and exclusive as their cars.

At 30kgs (approximately 66lbs) the Bentley Centenary Opus is more than a coffee table book, it’s the biggest book ever produced on the story of an automotive brand. Beginning with a foreword from the notable collector, Ralph Lauren, the tome spans 800 pages of Bentley’s 100-year history. Each of the three editions includes has a genuine Bentley crest on the cover just like the hood and trunk lid of a Bentley car.

The standard Centenary edition will set you back $3,800 and there will only be 500 made. The Mulliner edition is $16,000 and is limited to 100 copies. The mid-tier offering includes large-format Polaroids and watercolor paintings on silk paper, as well as a piece of the left front Michelin tire from the Bentley Speed 8 which won Le Mans in 2003 on the inside cover of its clamshell case.

The aptly named Carat Edition costs $254,000, and comes encrusted in diamonds. For this one, there are only seven in the world.
