You’re an individual with a high net worth and you drive a Bentley Bentayga. Naturally, you have quite a number of valuables (wallet, watch, etc.) with you on your daily commute, but what if you need to leave those items while at the beach, on the ski slope or when handing over your car to a valet?

Well, Bentley has introduced a new solution courtesy of its bespoke division, Mulliner, which aims to provide a greater peace of mind for customers. For its first-ever SUV, the carmaker is offering a biometric security stowage unit that employs fingerprint sensor technology.

Located in the centre console is a high pressure die-cast aluminium stowage unit, which is both discreet and unobtrusive. Those familiar with biometric identification in smartphones should be pretty familiar with how the secure stowage unit functions. Owners will be able to store multiple fingerprints, allowing them to control who has access to their valuables.

To expand its functionality, the stowage unit also comes with two USB ports and an auxiliary socket for connecting and charging mobile devices both inside and outside of the unit, enabling occupants to access the Bentayga’s infotainment system, including Apple CarPlay.
