Rolls-Royce SRH

Children who grew up on an estate with a name won't have access to Rolls-Royce's one-of-one ride-on toy.

It's going straight to the St. Richard's Hospital Pediatric Day Surgery Unit in England.

This toy is built for children who are going to surgery, so they can drive themselves to the operating theater.

The idea is that this will help lower the child's stress levels ahead of surgery.

Rolls-Royce's in-house Bespoke Manufacturing wing spent over 400 hours of their own time building the SRH.

To commemorate the SRH's build, Rolls-Royce brought two children and their families to Goodwood Studio, where they received the same VIP treatment that car buyers do.

The project team used 3D printing to create parts like the paddle controls and the Spirit of Ecstasy.

The children also took drives on the production line, which is usually reserved for the CEO during new vehicle development.

It'll go up to 10 mph, but it can be set to max out at 4, which is probably safer inside a hospital.

I'm not crying. You're the one who's crying.
