Blake’s Bentley

One-off Bentley by pop artist Sir Peter Blake to be auctioned for charity

 

Akin to the Rolls-Royces created by Nicolas Bijan Pakzad in terms of its unique style, a Bentley designed by the pop artist Sir Peter Blake is to be offered by Bonhams on 24th June at their Goodwood Festival of Speed sale.

Based on a 2016 Bentley Continental GT V8 S convertible, this anything but discreet vehicle features Sir Peter’s trademark St James red heart motif hand-painted onto a yellow bonnet as well as his signature on each of its headrests. A collage of bright shades decorates the exterior and the cabin is described as being “an expression of individuality” also with each seat trimmed in a different hide colour.

 

Of his creation, Sir Peter Blake commented:

 

“I am proud to have been involved with transforming this beautiful car, and have enormous admiration for the people at Bentley who brought my design into being, to produce this one-off lovely car”.

 

All funds raised from the sale of the – and that of seventy-five “I ♥ Bentley” prints created to accompany it – will be donated to the Care2Save Charitable Trust. An estimate for the vehicle has yet to be released.

    1. It is not to my taste but it is definitely collectable. The V&A should buy it. It is time they had some cars in their collection.

    2. I agree with Martin – the right cars, and I don’t mean the cars that petrol heads worship, would be a terrific draw to foreign visitors ……..particularly cars that belonged to iconic people, film and pop stars
