If you have the money to spend on a $229,000 Bentley Bentayga, there is also a high likelihood that you drive your luxurious SUV around the city with a couple more expensive items - could be a watch or in a different kind. Now, there is nothing for you to worry about when it comes to storing your valuables because Bentley now offers a storage box for the vehicle’s center console.
Moreover, there is no need to worry about losing keys to this because there actually is none, and it is replaced with a fingerprint scanner instead, making things much more safe and convenient.
It was Bentley’s Mulliner customization division that came up with the idea for this safe inside your car. Now, the center console has been turned into a secured space that features an aluminum cover with capacitive fingerprint scanner.
In the secured area, Mulliner made sure that your valuables will stay safe so it had been padded all over. It also features multiple USB ports and an auxiliary charging mobile devices that connect it to the infotainment system’s Apple CarPlay support. If you are driving and suddenly need to access your phone that’s locked in the safe, there is no need to worry as this tech allows the owner to authorize multiple fingerprints to open it. Meaning that your partner or your children can have access to this too.
This is the first time Mulliner has offered this to Bentley customers. Usually, what they are more known for are lavishly bespoke Bentleys. Despite the model still being quite new, Mulliner had already built a couple of special edition Bentley Bentaygas. For instance, they built one that is specially made for fly fishing. This was designed with leather rod covers, matching bags for nets, and a tackle holder in beautifully constructed wood.
Another special model they built with a unique, picnic theme - from fine china tableware, silver cutlery, to crystal stemware and a champagne chiller. Aside from those, there is also the falconer which was equipped with cork cabinets in the back for all the necessary gear, and even a perch for the bird.
Mulliner is not just limited to customizing for fancy hobbies, as they also built a Bentayga that took inspiration from The Jockey Club at Cheltenham Racecourse. For this particular one, they included several gold horses and jockeys all over the extensive Burr Walnut trim in the cabin.
Bentley Mulliner has been around for quite some time now, and they have been working on some pretty awesome modifications. But this new biometrics technology, we would say, is a first in the industry, and we are quite sure that this will be a hit for their fancy customers.
