Bentley Bentayga owners can now purchase a fly fishing set made especially for their car.
Famed Bentley coachbuilders Mulliner produce the car, the ‘Fly Fishing’ part of which comprises four hand-made rods and a host of fly fishing paraphernalia, contained in a luxurious three-piece trunk set.
The fishing set is comprehensively stocked; a full fly fishing kit is fitted, including cotton, hooks and feathers, as well as reel cases, a fly-tying vice and all the tools a fly fisherman might need. All of this is stored in three saddle leather-trimmed trunks, including a waterproof trunk to store wet fishing clothing. The fishing clothing is also included.
The other trunks are used to store refreshments and a ‘master tackle station’, and a pair of leather bags containing two fly fishing nets are also built into the side of the boot.
Mulliner has also installed a waterproof boot floor and sill protectors into the car to minimise damage from the wet equipment. A built-in dehumidifier also keeps the car’s interior dry.
There are also projector lights built into the bottoms of the doors, which project Bentley and Mulliner’s logos onto the ground upon opening. Aside from this, the rest of the car remains unchanged over the standard Bentayga.
The fishing set is entirely removable for when the driver doesn’t need the kit, although the fitted parts still mark out the fly fishing edition Bentayga out from its standard counterparts. Bentley and Mulliner identified fly fishing as an area of interest for the Bentayga demographic, but wouldn’t rule out a similar style pack for other outdoor pursuits, depending on the amount of demand. Mulliner’s on-demand service leaves the scope wide open, though.
There’s no limit on production because the edition is built to order. It’s available to order immediately, although waiting times are subject to build times as well on top of the waiting list for the standard, £160,000 Bentayga.
