From the outside, it really does look like another SUV – but it’s what happens on the inside that makes this Bentley have the “ultimate in-car falconry kit”.
Bentley oozes luxury with everything they produce, this time turning their sights to those who happen to own a bird of prey and want to take them along for a more accommodating ride.
With two special corks made just for the bird, there’s also an “intricate wood inlay in the shape of a falcon on the roof” just for that extra touch.
But that’s not all. From TIME:
The car comes set with a “removable transportation perch and tether” for the raptor, and a stowage tray with compartments for a GPS bird tracking unit, your all-important binoculars, bird-hoods, and gauntlets. (Those items are available with purchase ad add-ons.)
There’s even a “refreshment case” with metal flasks, cups, and face cloths, because falconry is an intensive sport that might require a respite from the exertion.
How’s that for a passenger? Pretty slick.
Of course, the falcon-centric vehicle isn’t cheap, retailing from $230 000 and up.
Here’s the beauty in action:
If that just happens to be a little out of your price range – and you are yet to call a bird of prey a pet – MINI’s new Countryman – roof tent included – could be the ideal substitute if you’re on the hunt for a bit of luxurious adventure.
