Bentley Bentayga Field Sports Edition by Mulliner is the most luxurious hunting car out there

Article by Christian A., on November 23, 2017

We’re willing to bet that the Bentley Bentayga is not the first thing that comes to mind for most people who are into off-roading and outdoor activities. It just doesn’t have that kind of reputation; also, it has a whopping price tag of $229,000.

Well, regardless of what your reasons are for hesitating on purchasing one, the automaker, together with Mulliner, has built an outstanding vehicle that you would want in your garage. Both companies have joined forces to fit a Field Sports accessory kit to the luxurious SUV, and this optional kit includes everything you need for the ultimate hunting car, believe it or not.

The British automaker and aforementioned Mulliner got custom gun manufacturer Purdey to work with them. So Purdey designed storage in the cargo area as an added feature. But what makes this so special is the large sliding unit that comes with several compartments capable of carrying supplies that the passenger will require – ranging from a first aid kit to some extra ammunition. Of course, the storage is not just like any basic storage out there, as it has been finished in the finest, authentic handcrafted materials to make sure that it is still luxurious.

That’s not all, in between the rear, there is even a leather-trimmed locking stowage case that can fit two guns, which we have never seen before. Customers can also opt for a Purdey bag that includes things like a waistcoat, a waterproof cape, gaiters, field coat, shoes and an overnight bag - everything that you will need to go hunting, day or night. Because it is a Bentley, it comes with the same leather interior with quilted design, and of course, enough room for champagne flutes for a post-hunt drink.

As of today, the Field Sports accessory for the Bentley Bentagya remains as a one-off. But if the automaker notices a demand for this, then they could offer it to customers real soon. So far, this is Bentley’s latest modification for the Bentayga, and the latest in a line of over-the-top Bentagya builds. Some of the other Bentaygas that Mulliner has developed are the ultra-posh Daylesford picnic special edition, and the Bentayga Falconry.

Any Bentley Bentayga you choose to get, whether it is the hunting-ready Field Sports edition, or the picnic special edition, will come with the same 6.0 liter biturbo V8 under the hood, that brings out an impressive 600 horsepower (447 kilowatts) and 664 pound-feet (900 Newton metres) of torque. That should be enough power for whatever activity you may wish to do. As a result, the car is able to hit 62 miles per hour (100 kilometers per hour) in only 4.1 seconds so you could get to your hunting spot just in time.

BENTLEY BENTAYGA FIELD SPORTS BY MULLINER: THE ULTIMATE ACCESSORY FOR COUNTRYSIDE PURSUITS

Bentley has created the ultimate luxury SUV accessory for sporting countryside pursuits: the Bentayga Field Sports by Mulliner.

Two iconic luxury British brands – Mulliner, Bentley’s personal commissioning division, and Purdey, manufacturers of the world’s finest shotguns – have partnered to design the perfect Bentley Bentayga for field sports enthusiasts. The pairing is a natural fit, as Bentley and Purdey share a passion for painstaking attention to detail and exquisite craftsmanship.

The result is a one-off SUV designed to take occupants to the finest sporting events in total luxury, with all the accessories required for the perfect rural adventure.

The Ultimate Field Sports Lifestyle Accessory

As Bentley’s personal commissioning division, Mulliner uses only the finest authentic, handcrafted materials to create something special for each customer. Such extraordinary focus is complemented by Purdey’s belief in the same bespoke process.

When placing an order for a new Purdey, the customer begins a process of hand-crafting that takes up to two years to complete. Barrel tubes are machined to within four thousandths of an inch and each tube is then filed by hand. Such attention to detail – and eye for quality design – makes Purdey the perfect match for Bentley.

Inside the one-off Bentayga Field Sports by Mulliner, a twin-compartment sliding stowage unit forms the basis of the bespoke kit. Within this tray – located in the Bentayga’s spacious boot – there are tailored sections for the transportation of cartridges, drinks, binoculars and protective wear. The handcrafted kit also includes a beautifully made humidor and is lockable for extra security.

Between the rear seats sits an exquisite, leather-trimmed stowage case for up to two guns. For the discerning field sports enthusiast, an exquisite Purdey bag can be specified containing a waistcoat, waterproof cape, gaiters, field coat, shoes and an overnight bag.

Inspired by Purdey and classic countryside pursuits, Mulliner has used the finest authentic materials – and paid attention to every detail – to create this unique accessory for the rural sporting life.

Bentley Bentayga: The Go-Anywhere Luxury SUV

Powerful, individual and exquisite in equal measure, the Bentayga is for those who demand luxury without restriction. It provides a true Bentley experience, even in the most challenging environments and takes luxury to new places, unrestrained by climate, terrain or conditions.

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 simple 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 Setting allows 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 Bentayga 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. Customers can also lower the rear suspension via a switch in the boot, to ease loading and trailer hitching.

Purdey – The King of Gunmakers

Since 1814, James Purdey & Sons have been perfecting the art of the ‘Best’ London gun, making the finest-quality shotguns, rifles and shooting equipment.

When a customer orders a hand-crafted Purdey gun, they are joining a tradition of gunmaking excellence that spans over two centuries. The attention to detail and craftsmanship of this iconic British company also reflects in their range of clothing and accessories that complements the lifestyle of any passionate shooter.
