Bentley has announced plans to hold an invitation-only art auction for the Christie Hospital in Manchester, England.

The exclusive event, set to be held at the Bonhams auction house on December 1st, will feature a "vast array of sculptures, painting, digital art and photography. Created in many different media, from sculptures in bronze and set in wood, to metal and leather, to Perspex, to palette knife and brush paintings on canvas, the works showcase the imagination of the men and women who design Bentley cars."

In total, more than 22 designers have contributed to the project. According to head designer, Dirk van Braeckel, "There has been a tremendous response from all the team from the day the idea was born. People have been doing additional work - after originally saying they would do one piece, they want to add more work."

If you're interested, online bids will be accepted through the website www.bentleydesignpassion.com until noon on December 1st.  A photo gallery of each piece is also available at the same web address.
