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).
