Rolls-Royce’s newest, and most compact model is an open tourer-badged SRH. It took 400 hours of bespoke hand-crafting to create, its two-tone body mirroring more grown-up models like the Wraith with an Andalusian White and Salamanca Blue paint job, finished with St James Red coachlines.
Signature Rolls-Royce features for the first electric Rolls include self-righting RR wheel centres, two-tone steering wheel and of course the famous Parthenon grille, topped by a version of the Spirit of Ecstasy created using a 3D printer.
All in all a very special Roller then…and it is for some very special people. The clue is in the name: SRH stands for St Richard’s Hospital. The model car – created at Goodwood by members of the firm’s Bespoke team in their spare time – is Rolls-Royce’s gift to the Chichester hospital’s paediatric day surgery unit.
Children awaiting surgery will soon be driving themselves along hospital corridors to theatre in a Rolls-Royce. All whisper-quiet of course at a top speed of 10mph.
