- Fingerprint recognition technology creates descreet secure stowage
- Developed by Bentley’s personal commissioning division, Mulliner
- Technology affords Bentley customers additional peace of mind
(Crewe, 19 March 2018) Bentley is introducing capacitive fingerprint sensor technology with a secure stowage unit in the Bentayga – affording customers even greater peace of mind.
Developed by Bentley’s personal commissioning division, Mulliner, the fingerprint sensor technology has been applied to a high pressure die-cast aluminium secure stowage unit located in the cabin.
This discreet and unobtrusive locker creates the ideal place to stow valuables while at the beach, on the ski slope or utilising valet parking services.
With two USB ports and an auxiliary socket, it can also be used for connecting and charging mobile devices both inside and outside of the unit, enabling occupants to access Bentayga’s extensive infotainment technology, including Apple CarPlay.
Uday Senapati, Mulliner’s Head of Technical Operations, said: “The Mulliner Biometric Secure Stowage unit is hidden from view. We are incorporating the familiar capacitive fingerprint sensor technology from smartphones that can store multiple fingerprints, allowing the user to control who accesses their valuables.”
Mulliner – Rare by Design
Mulliner exists to respond to the requirements of Bentley’s most discerning customers. Any type of personalisation can be undertaken to create a unique Bentley of individual taste.
Recent examples of Mulliner’s craft include the Mulsanne Grand Limousine, with its one-metre stretch and private-aviation-style seating configuration in the rear cabin; and the Bentayga Field Sports – the ultimate luxury SUV accessory for sporting countryside pursuits – which features a bespoke installation in the rear with all the equipment required for a perfect rural adventure.
