As if the Bentley Bentayga wasn’t niche enough already, the British car maker’s bespoke coachbuilding division, Mulliner, has created the Bentayga Fly Fishing by Mulliner.
Adding to the master tackle station, refreshment case and waterproof wafer-stowage trunk, are a waterproof boot floor, rear-sill protection covers, electronic dehumidifier, along with Mulliner ‘Welcome Lights’ - new to the Bentayga.
However, when you’re not feeling like a day on the riverbank, the entire set can be removed from the Bentayga’s boot to ensure maximum luggage capacity.
Geoff Dowding, Mulliner’s director, said the Bentayga Fly Fishing by Mulliner embodies the unique customisation capabilities and attention to detail of the coachbuilding division.
“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,” he said.
“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 fishing station into the car in a luxurious, accessible and elegant way.”
According to reports out of the UK, the Bentayga Fly Fishing special is priced around 80,000 pounds ($141,380) higher than the standard Bentayga, which in Australia kicks off at $420,600 plus on-road costs.
Update: A spokesperson from Bentley's local arm has confirmed with CarAdvice the Fly Fishing by Mulliner specification is available to Australian buyers, for a cool $210,000 plus stamp duty on top of the Bentayga's $420,600 (plus on-roads) starting price.
That takes the base price of a Bentayga Fly Fishing by Mulliner to $630,600 plus on-road costs in Australia, $6000 more than the starting price of the Bentayga First Edition, which starts at $624,400 before on-roads.
