One of a kind Bentley Continental designed by Godfather of British pop art

A unique Bentley Continental featuring artwork from Sir Peter Blake has been revealed, prior to its charity auction at this summer's Goodwood Festival of Speed.

The Continental GT V8 S Convertible boasts a design by the godfather of British pop art himself, who worked together with the British luxury carmaker on the project.

Explaining his design, Blake commented: 'It's very basic colours: chelsea blue, british racing green, and I usually use red on the yellow for the heart. And the magenta is such a beautiful colour.
He continued: 'The heart symbolizes the care that people give to the people in the hospice.'

The hospice he is referring to is Care2Save - one of Bentley Motor's charities of the year.

All proceeds from the Bonham's hosted auction will go to the hospice, which is a global promoter of supportive, palliative and hospice care.
