Bentley Debuts Falconry-Themed Bentayga

Bentley made waves last year with the release of its fly fishing-themed Bentayga. Complete with fly-rod holders, a wader-storage compartment, and drawers for flies and other equipment, the Mulliner-customized SUV set affluent anglers back $350,000. It didn’t hurt that the ride had a 12-cylinder engine capable of 600 horsepower, able to go from zero to 60 in four seconds, either.

Now Bentley has teamed up with Mulliner to create another custom Bentayga, this one aimed at the hunting market. Bentley introduced its falconry-themed Bentayga Falconry earlier this month, which, like the fly fishing model, is luxurious to the umpteenth degree.

“The Mulliner team is dedicated to creating cars that reflect your personality and passions,” Bentley’s website reads. “The Bentayga Falconry is just one expression of our capabilities, showcasing how our skilled craftspeople can devise and execute elegant bespoke solutions to compliment any lifestyle or hobby—from falconry and fly fishing to anything that you are passionate about.”

 

 

The interior features red and black leather with wood marquetry—real wood, hundreds of pieces of it. The design centers around an inlay of a falcon on the front passenger dash.

“The exquisite Hotspur hide-trimmed cabin of this special Bentayga is finished with a sweeping desert scene featuring a Saker falcon,” Bentley’s website reads. “Revered today, the breed has been used for hunting for thousands of years. This exquisite feat of marquetry has been created over nine days from 430 individual pieces of wood sourced from around the world.”

The Bentayga Falconry also comes with two removable perches for your bird of prey—one in the trunk and another between the front seats.

No pricing has been listed by Bentley, but experts believe the Falconry will run much higher than the fly fishing model. Much, much higher. The bird the SUV is themed around, the Saker falcon, is the most sought-after bird in the world. It alone is worth $1 million, so at that point, what does price really matter, anyway?
