These sit on a movable tray that allows for easy access. Inside the master flight unit is a special Piano Black veneered drawer – with a Saker falcon crest – containing modified storage for all the equipment required for this unique sport.”
The equipment includes a GPS bird tracking unit, binoculars, hand crafted leather brid hoods and gauntlets. There are two extra perches stored out back. With the hatch lifted, falcons can be prepared out back in the shade.

Exquisite craftsmanship commands the exuberant price tag of this car as the dashboard boasts a sweeping desert scene featuring a native Saker falcon which took nine days and 430 individual pieces of wood to craft. Each piece of the inlay went through 4 distinct processes of cutting, hot sand shading, pressing and double cutting, before being assembled by hand.
