A Rolls Royce belonging to footballer Eric Cantona was customized by JonOne and auctioned off in January 2013 for the sum of 125,000 euros. All proceeds were donated to the Abbé Pierre Foundation. JonOne was commissioned by the former footballer to give his 1984 Corniche a graffiti makeover live on stage for a November episode of Le Grand Journal, a famous French talk show. Eric Cantona then auctioned off the car to raise money for the Abbé Pierre Foundation, of which he is one of the sponsors, to fund projects supporting the homeless.

Priced at 20,000 euros, the customized Rolls Royce attracted a great deal of interest. Two bidders fought it out for the exceptional prize. A French collector finally placed the winning bid, well exceeding the used price of the vehicle, in what was described as a new record by the Artcurial auction house.
