Miniature versions of expensive cars are not a new concept, but this Rolls-Royce SRH is a one-of-a-kind model.
The car gets its SRH name from the St. Richard’s Hospital Pediatric Day Surgery Unit, for which it was built. The hospital is located in the same town as Rolls-Royce headquarters. It was provided to St. Richard’s for patients to drive down to the operating theater. The hallway to the theater is decorated with road signs, too. Rolls-Royce CEO Torsten Müller-Ötvös said in a press release, “We hope that the Rolls-Royce SRH will serve to make the experience for young people during treatment a little less stressful.”
Attention to detail and the quality of the build remain top-notch, with features such as the a small Spirit of Ecstasy ornament on the bonnet, self-righting wheel centers and an interior with colours that match the larger version precisely.
The little car is powered by an electric motor coupled to a 24 volt battery. It has a top speed of 16 kph, controlled via paddles behind the steering wheel, though that speed can be limited to 6.5 kph.
