Lamborghini Aventador Turned Pink For A Girl’s Bucket List

Lamborghini UK have turned their Aventador Roadster Pink for a little girl named Emilia and her bucket list item who is sadly severely ill. We highly respect Lamborghini for doing such a wonderful thing!  Rays of Sunshine Children’s Charity exists to grant the wishes of children who are living with serious or life-threatening illnesses between the ages of 3-18 who live in the United Kingdom. For your chance to make someone’s wish come true please do visit their website.

Her wish to ride in a Pink Lamborghini driven by Richard Hammond came true on 29th September when the Top Gear presenter, Richard Hammond flew into an airfield to collect the bright pink car from HR Owen and drove to her house. After a surprise knock at the door, Emilia rode with Richard to the airfield where friends and family were waiting to witness Emilia experience the rush of driving at a high speed down the runway.

Afterwards Emilia’s mum Rachel said:

“Emilia had an incredible time. The fact that the wish was turned around so quickly, meant that she was still physically able to enjoy it. This was a fantastic day that we will all remember as a family. We are so grateful to Rays of Sunshine and everyone involved for making every aspect of Emilia’s wish happen. It’s not until something awful happens that you get to find out how kind people can be.”

Richard Hammond said:

“It was a real privilege to be asked to make a contribution to such an inspiring, positive, unique and uplifting occasion. Emilia was charming and wonderful. There was every chance she could have been shy, but she chatted nonstop. It is truly inspiring how brave people are. Hearty congratulations to Rays of Sunshine for organising yet another unique and special occasion and to H R Owen for pulling out all the stops.”

Joe Doyle, CEO of H.R. Owen said “We’re delighted to be able to help Rays of Sunshine make Emilia’s dream come true with the pinkest Lamborghini I’ve ever seen. Rays of Sunshine is a fantastic cause and HR Owen are thrilled to be a part of such a special charity.”

The Lamborghini Aventador Roadster which has the original colour of white was plastidip’d (it’s getting quite popular now) with the car remaining pink for few days. I personally hoped they left the car pink for longer as would have been nice to see a change from the usual colours but sadly it is already back to white.

You can see the original colour below:

CSRozell says:

Right in the feels. It’s awesome what a little plasti dip and a car ride can do for someone. Also I love the color.

Russ says:

Actually looks very good in the colour

Jeroen says:

So, is Nicki Minaj buying this now?

David Girgis says:

Everyone saying “it’s not that bad” because it’s for a severely ill girl. But if you saw it on the streets or anywhere else you would’ve been cussing at it the entire day.

Sara Näse says:

There are worse shades of pink, that’s not so bad :) With black wheels it actually looks pretty interesting (and over the top, of course)!

pinkcarrally says:

Wonderful! We use our pink cars to help children too, via the http://www.pink-car-rally.com which raises funds for ‘real hair’ wigs for children who lose their own hair, primarily through cancer treatments. It’s such a shame we didn’t know about this initiative, because the little girl could have joined our recent rally….. I would love to talk to @lamborghiniuk whilst the car is still pink, to see whether we can use it to help other children too!

Aimar Ruiz says:

Im male and i like it, it isnt that bad.

Alan Mariscal says:

Yeah, I actually kind of like it :)

NeonMunky says:

I second your opinion actually, it’s a nice change among all the white Aventadors

Bu Ali Mahfooz says:

They should have also given matte black accents to that pink to make it look more aggressive.

Aimar Ruiz says:

Its for a little girl, why would she want it more “aggressive”?

tom suessegger says:

because the little girl knew what a Lamborghini was and wanted it to be driven by Richard Hammond, so she obviously know about top gear and possibly watches it all the time making her a car person and car people like aggressive.

Stephen Michael says:

^agreed. if i were to drive that i would feel l should be in gta vice city, and would proceed to blast ‘bark at the moon’ followed by ‘2 minutes to midnight’

Federico Flores says:

It doesnt look that ugly either

James says:

RESPECT to Lamborghini and the people involved in this.
