Taking inspiration from a Bentley Continental GT, Ray’s 1975 Caprice had high standards from the jump. The exterior is an authentic Bentley Neptune Blue shade, and owner Ray kept it in the family with its unique Bentley brown leather, as well. For the shoes, Ray kept it classy with brushed-face 26-inch Forgiatos boasting subtle hints of Neptune Blue in the windows. Ray explains the thought process on his whip: “It’s one of the nicest convertibles in the game today, because I took a high-end European theme and executed it on a classic American car. The car is the total package; everything works like new.”
