Drive away in a limited edition Sir Peter Blake-designed pop art Bentley Continental GT V8 S Convertible

B1
How do you fancy owning a true one-off piece of pop art? You might just be able to if you bid high enough for this amazing Sir Peter Blake-designed pop art Bentley Continental GT V8 S Convertible.

The car is quite obviously a ‘Blake’, with those bold colours and trademark imagery distinctive from quite a distance. But there are some more subtle details too, such as Blake’s signature on the passenger-side dashboard and all four headrests and a St James Red heart motif hand-painted onto the Continental Yellow bonnet. Each seat is also trimmed in a different shade of leather too.

Of course, this is a sought after car in itself, with its 4.0-litre V8 engine able to hit a top speed of 191mph. Not on UK roads though, obviously.

So that’s car, how do you get one? Well, one is the operative word here as this a a limited edition of just one. It is being auctioned off at Bonhams’ Goodwood Festival of Speed sale on 24 June 2016, with the proceeds going to Care2Save, a charity that provides hospice care around the world.
