Bonhams Auction – Goodwood Festival of Speed – Peter Blake Bentley

The stunning Bentley and Peter Blake collaboration made a big impact at Bonhams 2016 Festival of Speed Auction.

Bentley Continental GT V8 S Convertible Peter Blake

Bentley Continental GT V8 S Convertible by Peter Blake.

The world’s first and only British Pop Art Bentley.

Hand-built by Bentley’s Mulliner division to a unique design by British Pop Art icon Sir Peter Blake. Possibly the most striking feature of Sir Peter’s bold vision – instantly recognizable as a Sir Peter trademark – is a St James Red heart motif hand painted onto a Continental Yellow bonnet, a symbol in keeping with the compassionate work of hospices. The car was donated by Bentley and all proceeds from the sale are to go to the Care2Save charitable Trust, to support palliative and hospice care around the world. This one-of-a-kind motor car was sold by Bonhams, at their Goodwood Festival of Speed Auction, on Friday 24th June 2016, to a bidder in the room for £250,000.
