Bentley just revealed a huge 57.7 billion pixel image of the Dubai skyline.

It's the world's biggest image, made up of 1,825 individual frames stitched together.

Bentley suspended a camera 264 metres up the Cayan Tower – one of Dubai’s tallest buildings. The camera used was originally developed by NASA, to see stars light-years away.

The supercam had to withstand 40-degree heat and 25-kilometre winds. It image took 48-hours to create, and over 18 hours just to download the images from the camera.
