We love art car. Well, let’s be honest, not always. When you push a luxury car as classy as a Bentley, only two things can happen, that the result of the work of art is excellent, or you’ve destroyed a beautiful car. We’ll leave it to the readers to judge what has happened with this Bentley Continental GT. In any case, we still have to welcome the fact that this work of the british artist Sir Peter Blake to hide behind a charity. Because a Bentley Continental GT, decorated with colors so bright and hearts is definitely not something to which we are accustomed.
Its creator is the same one who designed the cover of the Sgt. Pepper’s, the Beatles…
The aesthetic chosen, on the other hand, is not very different from that usually offers the designer Ágatha Ruiz de la Prada. Without going any further server already had the opportunity to park in the garage, and fellowship, with a Nissan Micra full of hearts designed by the Ágatha Ruiz de la Prada (see history of the Nissan Micra of Ágatha Ruiz de la Prada).
The goal of Peter Blake was the to create a Bentley art car aesthetics pop art. And probably the most indicated to do so, according to among his works is the design of the cover of the album Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band, the Beatles, among others.
Underneath that huge heart he hides a V8 engine twin-turbo 4.0-liter 520 HP of power (more information on the Bentley Continental GT, 2015). The base is a Bentley Continental GT V8 S Convertible, a super-luxury convertible and high-flying. See test of the Bentley Continental GT Speed Convertible.
As I said at the beginning, the objective of this art car is to be auctioned by Bonhams at the Goodwood Festival of Speed this year, and raise funds that will be destined to the organization Care2Save that is dedicated to raising funds for various charitable causes.
