Elton’s Bentley leaves Yellow Brick Road

Riley Riley

A Bentley owned by Elton John will be one of the items up for grabs at the Silverstone Classic on July 21-22.

The 2014 Bentley Continental GT Speed offers truly unique provenance coming from the private collection of music royalty, Sir Elton John, one of the most highly acclaimed and successful solo artists of all time.

Originally delivered to Sir Elton in June 2014, the singer passed the car on to his partner, David Furnish, in April 2015 and it has remained in his name ever since.

The Bentley Continental GT Speed has been valued at up to A$142,000.

“It is a privilege to be able to offer this car at our headline sale of the year at the Silverstone Classic,” classic car specialist, Harry Whale, said.

“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.”

The Bentley GT Speed is the pinnacle of the Continental series with its 6.0 litre W12 engine producing an amazing 466kW, more than a McLaren F1.

The luxury car is finished in a dignified shade of Onyx Black and sits on 21-inch Speed alloys which have recently been refurbished.

Sir Elton’s selected options list stretches to three A4 pages, with the interior finished in Beluga leather with contrasting Hotspur Red stitching, with a number of carbon fibre fascia panels.

The Bentley has covered under 22,000 miles in the hands of its two famous owners.
