Romero Britto’s Bentley Continental GT news - Flower power returns - 2009

When we saw the gold-paint-and-flower-decals Asi
Tetsu Bentley Conti
 last year, we thought we’d found the campest, most
bewildering Bentley known to man.

It seems we were wrong. This is the ‘Britto-Bentley’, a squiggly, cartoony
art-thing from renowned Brazilian pop artist Romero Britto, created in
conjunction with the Bentley designers themselves.

The Britto-Bentley is on display at Romero’s ‘Come to my World’ exhibit in
Berlin and, according to Romero himself, has been created to ‘put a smile on
people’s faces’.

“Since everything in life moves toward an end”, says Britto, “we should
fill our life with colour and hope.”

When the Berlin show finishes, the Britto-Bentley will be auctioned off for

A fine cause, but does that really excuse dressing up a Bentley in flowers and
hearts? Thoughts please…
