The Story Behind Rolls-Royce’s Smallest Ever Bespoke Car

Rolls-Royce unveiled a very special bespoke car for the most unexpected customer. The tiny bespoke Rolls-Royce is to be used in St. Richard’s Hospital Pediatric Day Surgery Unit to allow children to have fun and drive themselves to the operation room while waiting for a surgery. The corridors of the Pediatric Unit are currently covered in traffic signs for this special purpose. Two children were welcomed to the Rolls-Royce home as the very first test drivers and to see the unveiling of the car, in the same way for all of Rolls-Royce’s VIP customers. The young test drivers got a chance to enjoy their first drives on the production line, a rare privilege that is usually reserved for the Chief Executive for the validation process.

This adorable mini Rolls was created by the dedicated Bespoke Manufacturing team from scratch. For each Rolls-Royce Bespoke order, there is a vigorous process to fully understand what the customer wants. The small bespoke car was specified with a two-tone colour palette of Andalusian White and Salamanca Blue, finished with a hand-painted red coachline. The interior of the car was designed with the same level of finesse and attention to detail as with any other Rolls-Royce vehicle. The top speed is 10mph achieved in seconds and the power is derived from a 24 volt gel battery that gives the car its distinct whisper-quietness. It took over 400 hours for the Bespoke Manufacturing team to develop and hand-craft this one-of-a-kind Rolls-Royce. This very special bespoke model allows children to relax and enjoy moments of fun in a situation that can be extremely stressful for young kids. While luxury cars mostly exist to serve the purpose of adults this is a refreshing take on how it can also brighten up the lives of children during difficult times.
