Rolls-Royce make one-off pink Ghost

pink ghostRolls-Royce have joined the club of luxury car manufacturers who have produced a pink version of one of their models. The first ever pink Rolls-Royce Ghost has been designed and made especially for the cause of UK charity, Breast Cancer Care. The pink sedan, which has a custom extended wheel-base, hopes to raise £1 million for the cause.

Other luxury car companies such as Lamborghini, Bentley, Chevrolet, Seat and Lexus have all previously brought out limited edition pink versions of some of their most sought-after models, and now Rolls-Royce has got on board too.

The car was commissioned by an organisation called FAB1, which is owned by the ginger-haired TV presenter and DJ Chris Evans (who is also a noted Ferrari collector). The number plate is incidentally “FAB1”, which is the same as Miss Penelope’s from 1960s TV show Thunderbirds.

The FAB1 Million project aims to raise the million pound target by having the eye-catching car appear at various breast cancer charity events across the country, as well as being available to hire throughout the year – with all proceeds going towards the fund. Those philanthropic people who choose to hire out the pink Roller will be treated to a luxurious experience – it boasts hand-veneered picnic tables, a Blushing Pink and Crème Light leather clad interior, personal 9.2 inch LED screens and a champagne cooler. Other exclusive features include pink-accented umbrellas, hand-embroidered headrests, pink floor mats made out of lambs wool and FAB1 tread plates.

The pink Roller’s year-long charity tour has started in Land’s End at the very south of the country, and will go on to chauffeur a number of celebrity passengers up to John O’Groats in the very north of Scotland. The celebrities taking a ride in the Ghost include pop-singer Gary Barlow, Top Gear’s James May, Professor Brian Cox and cook Mary Berry.

Despite the daring colour, which looks seemingly very much like the iconic model has had a pink paint job, the effect is actually achieved using an impressive vinyl wrap, provided free of charge by a vinyl car wrap company. Who would’ve known?!

Dudley limo company fined; caught without private hire licence

Splash Limousines, a Dudley-based limo hire company catering to school proms, have been fined £1000 for not possessing a private hire licence or a valid insurance. The limo hire company were caught during a council sting operation that revealed their lack of a private licence invalidated their insurance policy.

Lee Jeavons and Rachel Marson, owners of the company, have denied any wrongdoing stating that they were under the impression that the council authorities did not require a private hire licence. They have also told Dudley Magistrates Court that their company may face closure due to the court proceedings.

Splash Limousines defence Mr Shabir Qureshi said: “Five years ago there was a lot of talk among other limo companies that a private hire licence may be required, but Miss Marson was given the clear impression that there was no need for this in Dudley.”

However, enforcement officer Trevor Parkes told the court that Dudley council had started licensing limousines three years ago after a change in law. He also said that Splash Limousines should have been aware of this development and made changes to their licence as required.

Prosecuting, Tim Holder said that the company insurance policy only covered private hire cars. The lack of a private hire licence nullified the policy, leaving Splash Limousines without a valid insurance.

The entire matter came to light when the parent of a student, looking to book a limo hire for his daughter’s school prom, enquired whether Splash Limousines hold a licence. Mr Jeavons and Ms Marson, who also drove the limousines, told the court that they believed that they were covered by their insurance policy. The couple also claimed that they had only been sent licensing information relating to taxis and Hackney carriages by the council.

Ferrari smash caused by driver swerving to avoid hedgehog

A German businessman found himself with a battered Ferrari and a bill for £30,000 after he swerved to avoid hitting a hedgehog on a woodland road.

The 53-year-old Ferrari driver spotted the small animal in his headlights while driving down a road in Germany close to a forest. To avoid hitting and killing the small hedgehog, German businessman, Joerg Daecher, slowed down and attempted to steer the powerful Ferrari Testarossa away from the animal, however the sports car skidded on wet leaves and ended up colliding with a crash barrier.

The accident happened on Friday close to a wooded area near Eschershausen, Germany. No other vehicles, save the classic 1995 sports car, were involved in the crash.

While both the driver and the hedgehog were uninjured following the accident, the same could not be said for the red Ferrari which had sustained considerable damage to its frontage as the bumper had been ripped clean away after colliding with the barrier.

The state of the art Ferrari sports car, which is believed to cost in the region of £85,000 brand new, is expected to cost the businessman approximately £30,000 to put right following the hedgehog near-miss crash.

If you were behind the wheel of that Ferrari would you have swerved? Have you had a bump as a result of trying to avoid an object, animal or person in the road? Let us know your thoughts and stories related to the topic by dropping us a line below.
