Rolls-Royce Young Designer Competition - The Results

Back in April, Andrew announced this very special competition.

The response was overwhelming. In all, over 5,000 entries from 80 countries. All online, by children using their imagination to dream up fantastical cars of the future. The winners in each category had their designs transformed by the Rolls-Royce design studio into dream-like creations. Some winners will get Rolls-Royce journeys to school with a friend. Here is the UK Winner.

UK Winner: Rolls-Royce is also delighted to announce the UK winner which is the Rolls-Royce Bumblebee 5000, designed by 11-year-old Sofia. Sofia's design has been transformed into a beautiful digitally-rendered illustration by the Rolls-Royce Bespoke Design Team. She will also enjoy a chauffeaur-driven journey with her best friend in a Rolls-Royce to school. In addition Rolls-Royce is donating a complete Greenpower electric car kit to Sofia's school, enabling its participation in future Greenpower motorsport events.
