bentley reels out the ultimate luxury car for fly fishing enthusiasts




bentley fly fishing mulliner: hand-crafted by the luxury car manufacturer’s bespoke coachbuilding division, the ‘bentayga fly fishing’ by mulliner is an exquisite installation which houses all the equipment required for a successful day on the river. the rods are stored in special tubes trimmed in saddle leather with linen cross-stitching and located on the underside of the parcel shelf. a pair of landing nets in matching leather bags are stored in a bespoke, carpet-trimmed hard pocket built into the side of the boot. at the heart of the chest are three individual, saddle-leather-trimmed units: a master tackle station; a refreshment case; and waterproof wader-stowage trunk.

the master tackle station and refreshment case sit on a sliding tray that allows for easy access. inside the master tackle unit is a special burr walnut veneered drawer containing a fly-tying vice and tools, as well as a selection of cotton, hooks and feathers. beneath this are four machined-from-solid aluminium reel cases trimmed in saddle leather with a linen cross-stitching. the interior of the refreshment case is trimmed in linen leather, and contains up to three metal flasks and a set of mulliner fine-china tableware, as well as a separate food storage compartment. with a quilted leather finish on top, it can also be removed entirely and used as additional seating.

waders and boots are conveniently stowed in a hand-crafted and saddle-leather-wrapped wood trunk, lined with hard-wearing neoprene material to keep the items in a waterproof environment after use. of course, all three units can be removed from the ‘bentayga’s’ boot whenever maximum luggage space is required. waterproof boot-floor and rear-sill-protection covers are discreetly integrated into the rear of the ‘bentayga fly fishing’ by mulliner, as is an electronic dehumidifier unit to ensure the area remains fresh and dry.

for the first time mulliner ‘welcome lights’ are also featured. these are built into the underside of the doors and project the bentley and mulliner logos on to the ground when the doors are opened. in addition as a bespoke option, any personal logo or graphic can be individually specified on a ‘bentayga’ order.

geoff dowding, director of mulliner, said, ‘the bentayga fly fishing car showcases the breadth and level of detail a customer can expect from mulliner. this is an individual bespoke solution and our skilled craftspeople can design elegant and exquisitely executed bespoke solutions to complement any customer lifestyle or hobby. fly fishing is a sport that requires a variety of equipment and clothing, so it was essential to package the rods, reels, waders, boots and fly-tying station into the car in a luxurious, accessible and elegant way – and the end result is truly extraordinary.’

it offers the widest range of on- and off-road drive settings of any vehicle via bentley’s drive dynamics mode and optional responsive off-road setting. up to eight modes are available, allowing drivers, at the turn of a dial, to select the perfect dynamic set-up for any surface or road condition. this versatility is complemented by bentley dynamic ride (electrically activated 48v active roll control) and electric power-assisted steering (EPAS).

the responsive off-road settings allow the customer to select the appropriate vehicle settings for a wide range of off-road surfaces, while the driver information panel displays information on pitch, roll, wheel articulation, steering angle, compass bearing and altitude. as with all bentleys, the ‘bentayga’ comes with multi-mode air suspension. the driver has four different modes to choose from: high 2, high 1, normal and low. high 2, for example, can be manually selected when tackling more severe off-road surfaces. drivers can also lower the rear suspension via a switch in the boot, to ease loading and trailer hitching.
