Colourful GT designed to tie in with an art exhibition
6 July 2009

Bentley has unveiled a one-off Continental GT to tie in with an art exhibition in Berlin.

Artist Romero Britto has designed the special Bentley Continental GT as part of his Come to my World exhibition. It features “a large, happy flower, little stars, squiggles and signs dance on the elegant bonnet and colourful, comic-like figures adorn the doors.”

Britto said: “It is the most beautiful and elegant car in the world. The lines of the new design are perfect to paint as a clean canvas. What a way to start a fascinating and colourful journey.”

Like Britto, Bentley’s exterior design chief Raul Pires is Brazilian and he was central in creating the Continental GT and he described his countryman’s creation as the “the unique combination of exhilaration and relaxation in one package.”
