Bentley’s Mulliner division is know for their upholstery expertise which by now has become an industry standard for bespoke and the highest quality levels of work. The Mulliner division recently put their hands together and crafted what can only be summed up as a fisherman’s delight and installed their handy work in Bentley’s Bentayga.
The Mulliner’s kit looks almost too good to use. With the entire rear trunk area of the Bentayga setup to house fishining equipment, Mulliner trimmed everything up in saddle leather and Burr walnut. Lift up the rear trunk cover and four individually wrapped leather tubes are exposed which house four sets of fishing rods.
There’s also a refreshment case to keep the owner’s supply of Pimms nice and cool that comes with posh fine-china tableware and metal flasks. Meanwhile a waterproof wader stowage trunk keep wet and muddy waders from ruining the interior after a day out on the river.
All of the fishing-related kit can be removed so the usual boot space of the Bentayga can be claimed back when undertaking the usual Chelsea tractor duties. Oh, and you get a dehumidifier to stop the wet from ruining that lovely quilted leather interior.
“The Bentayga Fly Fishing car showcases the breadth and level of detail a customer can expect from Mulliner,” said Geoff Dowding, director of 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.”
