Bentley has teamed up with British pop art creator Sir Peter Blake to produce a one-of-a-kind ‘Continental GT V8 S’ convertible. The unique car will be auctioned for Charity by Bonhams at the Goodwood Festival of speed on June 24th 2016. Sir Peter Blake’s signature is incorporated onto the panelling and embroidered on all four seat headrests. To finish, storage cases feature a ‘piano black’ veneer outer but with ‘continental yellow’ and ‘St James red’ internal linings to reflect the bonnet colour theme. A treadplate, signifying that this is a Sir Peter Blake design, labelling ‘no. 1 of 1’ finishes the car. Bentley has donated the car to the care2save charitable trust, which provides palliative and hospice are around the world. Via designboom
