Sure, Ferraris and Lamborghinis are awesome. But can they host a trained bird of prey?
Sadly, no. The new Bentley Bentayga Falconry by Mulliner, however, can.
“Hand-crafted by Mulliner – Bentley’s personal commissioning division – the Bentayga Falconry features a bespoke installation in the rear which houses all the equipment required for an enjoyable falconry expedition,” the carmaker said in a statement.
The Falconry treatment for the $230,000-and-up-ultra-luxury SUV adds everything the well-heeled falconer requires.
“At the heart of the Bentayga Falconry by Mulliner are two individual natural-cork-fabric-trimmed units: a master flight station and a refreshment case,” Bentley said. “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 bespoke storage for all the equipment required for this unique sport.”
According to Bentley’s Geoff Dowding, who runs Mulliner: “The Bentayga Falconry showcases what’s possible with our skilled craftspeople. They can devise elegant and exquisitely executed bespoke solutions to compliment any lifestyle or hobby. Falconry is regarded as the sport of kings in the Middle East, so it was vital that the kit we created was as luxurious as it was practical and durable to appeal to our valued customers there and around the world.”
Let’s take a closer look:

Time to let the falcon fly …
… he always comes back.
