Last year Bentley Motors announced a collaboration with the SagerStrong Foundation on a custom Bentley to raise funds for blood cancer research in honor of late sports reporter Craig Sager. The idea was to create an expensive Sager style sports car and add dozens of autographs to it.
The one-of-a-kind Continental GT Speed convertible has been transformed by the Bentley bespoke division, Mulliner, into a piece of art that celebrates Sager’s legacy with a nod to his signature bright-colored fashion.
The car has traveled the country to various sporting events, with current and former athletes signing it along the way. The list of more than 60 autographs on it now includes Steph Curry, Shaquille O’Neal, Magic Johnson, Dikembe Mutombo, Jerry West, Bill Walton, George Gervin, Jerry Rice, Derek Jeter, Reggie Jackson, Ozzie Smith and others.
Many more are expected to be added when the car goes on display at the NBA All-Star Game next month and it’ll be offered for sale via Julien’s Auctions on Monday, Feb. 20.
All proceeds will benefit the SagerStrong Foundation to raise funds and support for blood cancer research and trials.
MSRP of the vehicle is $382,090 before any bespoke work or autographs adorned the car with an auction estimate of $400,000-$500,000.
