Bentley builds ultimate Bentayga for your six-figure shotgunsby Justin King
A special locked case can hold several shotguns, plenty of ammunition, a few bottles of the finest scotch and cigars for the whole hunting party.
Bentley has teamed with British gunmaker Purdey to create the ultimate Bentayga for 'countryside purists.'
Handcrafted by artisans in Bentley's Mulliner division, the Bentayga Field Sports is billed as an accessory for exclusive rural adventures. Its custom twin-sliding stowage unit is tailored for hunters, with dedicated space for a few bottles of scotch and fine cigars.
Buying an SUV as an accessory for shotguns may seem crazy, however Purdey's customers typically pay over $100,000 for a single over-and-under or side-by-side. Each is custom fit to the buyer and requires up to two years to complete. Such guns tend to foster more pride among owners than even a Bentley SUV can achieve.
"The pairing is a natural fit, as Bentley and Purdey share a passion for painstaking attention to detail and exquisite craftsmanship," the automaker says.
No price has been stated for the Bentayga Field Sports, though it presumably fetches a significant premium over the SUV's $229,000 base price.
