Bentley Americas and the SagerStrong Foundation collaborate on a piece of automotive art.
Late legendary sportscaster Craig Sager was known for his bold style and head-turning blazers. His “rose-colored glasses” approach to life was reflected in his style and his personality, and his SagerStrong Foundation founded by him and his wife Stacy to fight against blood cancer reflects his optimism for a brighter future. To celebrate his life and legacy, Bentley Americas partnered with the SagerStrong Foundation in creating a one-off 2022 Bentley Continental GT Speed Convertible customized by Mulliner and inspired by one of his most iconic moments.
The design of the car is inspired by a piece he wore at one of his last major experiences, which was the 2016 ESPYs when he accepted the Jimmy V Perseverance Award. The exterior of the car mimics the pattern of the blazer he wore at the event, using it to highlight the shape of the vehicle. His legacy also lives on in the form of the embroidery of his signature on the seats. To support SagerStrong’s mission, the car will be auctioned to support the foundation early next year, and won’t just be a unique expression of art, pop culture, and automotive excellence, it will also support an amazing cause.
