Bentley Made An SUV For Falconers Complete With Perch And Bird Tracker

Automobiles have been manufactured for over a century, yet in all that time, there is one customer who has always been ignored. That’s right, I’m talking about falconers. For too long those brave men and women who train birds of prey to do their bidding have gone without a vehicle built specifically for them. But thanks to Bentley, that’s no longer the case.

Following in the footsteps of the fly fishing-themed Bentayga comes the Bentayga Falconry by Mulliner. And it is every bit as opulent as one would expect.

The trunk contains a master flight station with a GPS bird tracking unit, binoculars, hand-crafted leather bird hoods and gauntlets, tracking antennas and various tools and tethers; a refreshment case with blanket, face cloths and three metal flasks; and an artificially-turfed perch.

The dashboard features an intricate desert scene complete with a native Saker falcon which took nine days and 430 individual pieces of wood to craft. And of course, there’s a perch between the front seats.

The Bentayga Falconry by Mulliner costs $260,000 — about $97,000 more than the standard price — but obviously that’s no issue when it comes to transporting your favorite bird of prey in complete comfort.
