Sir Elton John’s 2014 Bentley Continental to be sold at auction
The Continental GT Speed from the legendary pop star's private collection will be hammered away by Silverstone Auctions at Silverstone Classic, July 21-22
The 2014 Bentley Continental GT Speed from Sir Elton John’s private collection is set for the yellow brick road. Heading for auction at the Silverstone Classic on July 21-22, this special Bentley has been estimated at £70,000 - £80,000.
Offering unique provenance from the garage of music royalty, the vehicle also serves up 626bhp and a top speed of 206mph. Should be more than enough to crown any new owner a legitimate Rocket Man…
- You won't believe that Elton John owned one of these...
- ...or that one of his Bentleys ended up here...
- After a classic Bentley? Step this way...
‘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.
