Canvas by Bentley, artwork by Blake

Brought together in support of the visionary Care2Save Charitable Trust, the Bentley By Blake initiative combines the iconic prowess of two British stalwarts – Bentley Motors and Sir Peter Blake – with the ambition to produce an inimitable one-of-a-kind Bentley Continental GT V8 S Convertible…that you could own.

The Car

Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band – set about designing the world’s first pop art Bentley.

Drawing on inspiration from his celebrated career at the forefront of the British pop art movement, the exterior of the car utilises bold use of collage and colour whilst the interior embraces Sir Peter’s expression of individuality, incorporating the artist’s signature to create a truly symbolic finish.

The Cause

caring nurse with senior patientEvery year, 40 million people around the world are in need of palliative care, yet 86 per cent of these – that’s 34.4 million people – will not receive the care they need. This needs to change.

Together with a shared vision, the Care2Save Charitable Trust and Bentley Motors aims to address this global issue through unique fundraising initiatives and make a significant impact on the lives of thousands of people around the world who are in desperate need of help.

All money raised from the Bentley By Blake campaign will go towards significantly improving quality of life by increasing comfort, promoting dignity and providing a support system to not only the person who is ill, but to those who lovingly care for them.

The Auction

The Bentley By Blake Continental GT V8 S Convertible will be auctioned by Bonhams at the world famous Goodwood Festival of Speed on 24th June 2016, where tens of thousands of motoring enthusiasts will gather to celebrate the best from the past and present of motoring and motorsport.

Naturally, interest in the strikingly iconic Bentley By Blake is high, therefore we are encouraging people to contact Bentley well in advance of the event. To secure your copy of the catalogue, click here and complete the form at the bottom of the page.
