Bentley Americas and The SagerStrong Foundation, founded by the late Craig Sager and his wife Stacy, revealed a unique Bentley Continental GT Speed Convertible dedicated to bringing Craig’s spirited energy to life. The design of the car is inspired by the American sports reporter’s famous on-screen wardrobe.
One of Craig’s last major appearances was his speech at the 2016 ESPYs – accepting the Jimmy V Foundation’s ‘Perseverance Award.’ Inspired by the unique fabric sported that evening, the Mulliner team was able to mimic the flower pattern to complement the Bentley Continental GT Speed Convertible’s iconic shape, including its Power and Haunch lines. A statement of true sporting purpose, the new Continental GT Speed Convertible blends style with performance intent.
Our interpretation of “clothing” the Continental GT Speed Convertible in something Craig would have worn honors him and his vibrant, enduringly positive, and uplifting spirit. It’s our aspiration that further enhancing this car with the signatures of Craig’s family, both on and off the court, will create an iconic piece of rolling memorabilia: a lighthouse of hope for those that knew and loved Craig. – Scott Reynolds, Retail Marketing Manager, Bentley Motors, Inc.
Handcrafted and engineered in Bentley’s carbon-neutral luxury automotive factory, the new GT Speed Convertible offers enhanced chassis technology, including All-Wheel Steering, an electronic rear differential and the option of carbon ceramic brakes.
Stacy Sager, the driving force behind the SagerStrong Foundation, collaborated with Bentley to bring this car to life. This organization is an organic extension to the luxury automobile maker’s efforts to combat cancer.
