Unique Bentley goes up for auction

Unique Bentley goes up for auction

A classic Bentley that has been airbrushed by the contemporary artist Paul Karslake will go under the hammer on November 30.

The re-sprayed model, dubbed 'The Empire', features a Union Jack with a Lancaster bomber flying across it on the roof. Scenes from the battles of Trafalgar and Waterloo are also depicted on the side of the car.

There are also images of Sir Winston Churchill and a depiction of the Battle of Britain, as well as the Falklands War and The Queen.

"I am sick and tired of wishy-washy art. I wanted to do something that was detailed, concise and patriotic and I think this ticks all the boxes. Never Surrender! Haha!" Karslake said.

The car is expected to fetch between £10,000 and £15,000 when it goes under the hammer at Historics auction house in November, with interest in the piece expected to be high.
