Bespoke Bentley Continental GT Art Car Goes On Display

This unique Bentley Continental GT is wearing a piece from Icelanding artist Katrin Fridriks art show dubbed ‘Speed of Light – Commander’ and will be on display at Jack Barclay Bentley, the world’s oldest Bentley dealership, until October 7th.

Afterwards, it will be showcased at special events over at the JD Malat Gallery, allowing visitors to admire the so-called frequency between black and white, or what Fridriks describes as the “Grey Area.”

“I’m so excited about working in partnership with Jack Barclay Bentley to create this unique automotive artwork. It’s the perfect marriage of the cornerstones of my art – capturing speed and energy, design, craftsmanship, precision and a strive for excellence,” said the Icelandic artist.

The way the colors work here is that they allow for the car’s bold lines to come through the energetic liquid shapes, while the abstract organic forms follow the Continental GT’s elegant design, adding a sense of motion.

There are flow marks in the front that accelerate towards “splattering paint” on the back, making the car look different depending on a variety of viewing points.

Aside from its artsy new looks, this Conti GT is also the proud wearer of a 6.0-liter twin-turbocharged W12 gasoline engine, which apparently wasn’t modified in any way, meaning it is still producing 626 HP (635 PS) and 664 lb-ft (900 Nm) of torque.

Despite its 4,960 lbs (2,250 kg) weight, the luxury grand tourer can accelerate to 62 mph (100 km/h) in just 3.7 seconds before maxing out at 207 mph (333 km/h).

    How to make a Bentley art car:
    1. Prepare a bucket of white paint, any paint will do, as long as it can dry out.

    2. Spill the paint onto the Bentley while it moves. Make sure the sides panel got spilled on too…

    3. Drive the Bentley as fast as possible on the highway until the paint dries out.

    4. To make your painting stay longer and look shiny, apply the overcoat.

    You have the Bentley Art Car.

      Oh come on…you are just hating cause you don’t understand art☺️☺️☺️

      Your absolutely correct. I am a professional artist, and this “art” is just pure laziness. This took zero effort, and adds no value to expand human conscience.

    In my opinion, there is no better combination of performance and luxury on the market. The Bentley Continental GT is the gold standard.

    IMO, the best art cars were from BMW in the 70s and 80s. Lichtenstein and Koons were the ones that introduced me to the idea of “art cars.” Some of the more current art cars seem kinda lazy and boring.
