Bentley recently auctioned off a brand new luxury 2012 Continental GTC for charity to help raise funds for Children in Need, an annual charitable fundraiser organized by the BBC and aimed at helping disadvantaged children and adolescents.
During an auction at the star-studded event at the Hilton Hotel in Manchester, England, Bentley helped to raise more than $377,000 for the charity. During the event, singer Kelly Rowland and British TV personality Chris Moyles were in attendance.
In addition to getting the keys to a new car hand-delivered by X-Factor Gary Barlow, the winning bidders were invited to the Bentley factory in Crewe and will be able to select the woods and leathers for the interior of their new car. To further personalize the car, Bentley’s craftsmen will add signatures of several celebrities who attended the event in the interior, creating a car unique in the world as a special memento for a generous evening.
