Purely powered by honey, has an observation room for animals and has a Butterfly spirit – these are the ideas of an eight-year-old child named Megan for a future luxury car, and Rolls-Royce has reinvented his sketch in a full-fledged rendering of the British brand’s luxury convertible.
This is just one example of how Rolls-Royce wants to reward the winning entry in its young designers competition, which began in April. Here is the complete concept of the Rolls-Royce convertible above.
The competition was overwhelming. Rolls-Royce had received more than 5,000 illustrations by the time the bid closed on July 2, 2020, the press release said. These sketches of children under the age of 16 were from more than 80 countries.
Out of more than 5,000 hand-drawn entries, Rolls-Royce has selected 220 entries – the winners will be chosen by mid-July, according to the company. You can see some of the preselected entries on the gallery at the bottom of this story, while the full set is available for viewing on The Rolls-Royce Young Designer Competition microsite.
As a reminder, the winner of the competition will be given an illustration of the design, like the one above, a ride in a Rolls-Royce with driver for the first day of return to school for the winner, with his best friend. Finalists will receive a hand-signed certificate from Torsten Müller-Ötvös, CEO of Rolls-Royce Motor Cars.
A lucky UK entry will be chosen to receive a new Greenpower electric car kit, in addition to the Rolls-Royce chauffeur ride. The car kit will be used as a school entrance to the Greenpower Challenge – a motorsport competition for schools in Great Britain.
