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.
