Bentley Bentayga Falconry edition is as local as it gets
As per their own words, Bentley has created the “ultimate accessory for the falconry enthusiast”, with the new Bentayga Falconry by Mulliner.
Mulliner is Bentley’s individual customisation division, and the Bentayga Falconry features a bespoke installation in the rear which houses all the equipment required for a falconry expedition.
In the boot of the Bentayga Falconry by Mulliner are two individual natural-cork-fabric-trimmed units: a master flight station and a refreshment case. These sit on a movable tray that allows for easy access. Inside the master flight unit is a special Piano Black veneered drawer with a Saker falcon crest, containing GPS tracking antennas, tools, tethers for the birds and a 3.5-inch wooden handled Buck Knife.
Beneath this is a “laser-embossed Hotspur hide” stowage tray with individual compartments for the GPS bird tracking unit, binoculars and hand-crafted leather bird hoods and gauntlets. The refreshment case houses three metal flasks and durable cups, a blanket and refreshing face cloths.
Two individual perches are stored in a special natural-cork-fabric-trimmed case which slots into a hard pocket built into the side of the boot. A boot-floor and rear-sill protection cover – also in cork – is discreetly integrated into the rear of the Bentayga. Using this reversible feature in conjunction with the in-car perch, falconers can prepare their bird in comfort and shade.
Inside the Bentayga’s “Hotspur hide” trimmed cabin, there is a removable transportation perch and tether on the central armrest. The sweeping desert scene on the dash was created using 430 individual pieces of wood sourced from all over the world and hand-crafted over nine days, so no two dashboards will be the same.
The specific breed of falcon featured is the Saker Falcon, exceptional examples of which can apparently fetch as much as US$ 1,000,000.
The price of the UAE-targeted Falconry Mulliner model is unknown, but we drove a regular Bentley Bentayga recently.
