‘It is a privilege to be able to offer this car at our headline sale of the year at the Silverstone Classic,’ says Harry Whale, classic car specialist at Silverstone Auctions. ‘We feel incredibly honoured for Sir Elton to have entrusted his Continental GT Speed with us, and we’re delighted to offer this very special luxury car to our customers at auction.’

Finished in a rather dignified shade of Onyx Black, atop recently refurbished 21in Speed alloy wheels, the 6.0-litre W12 brute was originally delivered to Sir Elton in June 2014. He eventually passed the car onto his husband, David Furnish, in April 2015. It has remained in his custody ever since.

The specification sheet for factory-installed extras runs over three pages, with the interior finished in Beluga leather with contrasting Hotspur Red stitching, alongside a number of carbon fibre fascia panels. Not enough for you? There’s only 22,000 miles on the odometer. Barely run in and still capable of performing the greatest Circle of Life doughnuts.

Given only the best of care, the Bentley is accompanied by a comprehensive history file, with various stamps from Bentley Berkshire and HA Fox in Guildford.

‘This very special car comes from a highly exclusive private collection and presents an exciting opportunity to own not only one of Bentley’s most prestigious models but one that will be completely unique when compared with similar cars in the future,’ concludes Harry.
