CREWE - August 11, 2017: The Bentayga Falconry by Mulliner is an exquisite installation designed to house everything you need for a successful falconry expedition, fitted into the boot of your Bentayga. Hand-crafted by Bentley’s bespoke commissioning division; it is at once practical while delivering the pinnacle of luxury that Mulliner promises.

THE PERFECT EXPEDITION STARTS HERE
Each Mulliner Falconry set is made to order and features two bespoke unites which fit seamlessly in the rear of Bentayga and keeps every piece of equipment you will need for a successful falconry outing to hand. It features two bespoke units – a master flight station and a refreshment case that are fitted to a moveable tray for easy access.




Both the Refreshment Case and the Master Flight station are trimmed in luxurious yet practical natural cork fabric. Crafted from thin sheets of sustainably harvested cork, its pleasing natural patterns draw they eye. It is extremely easy to maintain and is very durable, making it the perfect choice for harsh, rugged environments.

A PLACE FOR EVERYTHING EVERYTHING IN ITS PLACE
Inside the master flight station, you will find a stowage tray with individual compartments, which can hold your GPS bird tracking unit, binoculars and hand-crafted leather bird hoods and gauntlets. A beautiful Piano Black veneered drawer features a striking Saker falcon crest. This stores your own GPS tracking antennas, along with various tools and tethers for your birds. Inside the refreshment case are three metal flasks with durable cups, for tea, coffee or other beverage of your choice. There is also warm blanket and refreshing face cloths for your comfort. The cork fabric boot-floor and rear-sill protection cover is neatly integrated into the rear of your Bentayga. This reversible feature, together with the in-car perch, gives you a safe and comfortable space to prepare your bird for flight, with everything you need in easy reach. There is also a removable perch and tether that fits on the central armrest inside the car, making transporting your falcon safe and comfortable.

INSPIRED BY THE MAJESTIC SAKER FALCON
The exquisite Hotspur hide-trimmed cabin of this special Bentayga is finished with a sweeping desert scene, featuring a Saker falcon. 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 first challenge in creating such a complex piece comes in selecting the right pieces of veneer. Each wood is chosen for its particular qualities. The speckling of Lacewood perfectly mimics the rippling of the wind-swept sand dunes, while dark Fumed Chestnut and snowy-off white Holly were chosen to capture the subtle colors and textures of the Saker’s feathers. Each piece of the inlay goes through four separate processes of cutting, hot sand shading, pressing and double cutting, before being assembled by hand with infinite care and patience. Before it is pressed, the final inlay is checked under magnification to ensure the perfect fit and finish.
