Bentley creates bespoke Continental GT in tribute to Craig Sager

Bentley has created a custom Continental GT Speed Convertible unlike anything ever released before.

The car, which is covered in bright florals, was created as a bespoke tribute to the late Hall of Fame Sportscaster Craig Sager. 

The exterior of the car was designed to reflect the way Sager saw the world; through rose-colored glasses. 

And the new Continental GT blends style with performance. 

The six liter W12 TSI engine delivers 650 hp, launching from 0-60mph in just 3.6 seconds. 

It also has a top speed of 335km/h (208mph). 


The luxury car company created it together with The SagerStrong Foundation – which was founded by Sager and his wife Stacy. 

Together, they wanted to bring Sager’s overwhelmingly positive and exuberant energy to life. 

And the vibrant design, which drew inspiration from Sager’s on-screen wardrobe, resulted in a one-of-one masterpiece. 

Sager died following a two-year battle with acute myeloid leukemia in 2016. 

Following his death, his wife Stacy vowed to continue his work raising money for blood cancer research. 

As a result, the car will be auctioned for charity early next year, with all proceeds going towards blood cancer research.

Stacy Sager said the car represented the very fabric of who her husband was. 

“Craig had a deep-rooted passion for craftsmanship, it was reflected int he suits he had tailored and the cars he chose to drive,” she said. 

“If he were here today, he would be driving the family around, top down, smiling ear to ear in this perfect representation of his beautiful and powerful spirit.”

Bentley said designers worked hard to merge Sager’s legacy and flare for life, with “one of the most beautiful and powerful grand tourers in the world”. 

The new GT Speed Convertible has enhanced chassis technology; including all-wheel steering, an electronic rear differential and the option of carbon ceramic brakes.

The SagerStrong Foundation previously teamed up with NBA star Stephen Curry to create special Under Armour shoes in memory of the American sports reporter.

The sneakers were worn by Curry before also being auctioned off for the foundation.
