Bentley says this is the world's first pop art Bentley. It is the second Continental GT that the British carmaker is donating to the Care2Save Charitable Trust, which is a global initiative to raise awareness and funds for palliative and hospice care
Sir Peter Blake incorporated his trademark St James Red heart motif, which is hand painted onto a Continental Yellow bonnet. Bentley says that this is a symbol in-keeping with the compassionate work of hospices.
Sir Peter Blake is best known for designing the sleeve for The Beatles iconic Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band album.
Sir Peter’s signature is incorporated onto the fascia panel and embroidered on all four seat headrests. Each seat is trimmed in a different hide colour, which is echoed on the steering wheel. The interior also features a vivid pink leather gear lever.
A distinctive treadplate, signifying that this is a Sir Peter Blake design, labelling ‘No. 1 of 1’ finishes the car.
Bentley's Mulliner division, which creates bespoke vehicles for customers, worked closely with Sir Peter to bring this design to life.
Sir Peter created the St Luke’s Blue colour for the car, which dominates the car's rear haunches, doors and boot lid. It was named in homage to St Luke’s Cheshire Hospice.
The Bentley By Me campaign allows people to donate any amount from £1 to help transform hospice and palliative care, with the opportunity to win a Bentley.

AS MODIFIED cars go, Sir Peter Blake’s new Bentley Continental GT is one of the most striking examples yet.

The artist, who is considered one of the godfathers of Pop Art and perhaps best known for co-creating the sleeve design for the Beatles’ album Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band, was commissioned by the British luxury car brand to create a one-off Bentley Continental GT V8 S Convertible to be auctioned for charity.

The Peter Blake Bentley  will be auctioned by Bonhams at the Goodwood Festival of Speed on June 24.
