UK charity, Rays of Sunshine, teamed up with HR Owen and Lamborghini UK to secure one of the dealership’s Lamborghini Aventadors, in which it was re-sprayed in candy pink – allegedly making it one of its kind in the world.
Behind the wheel to escort eight-year-old Emilia on her dream drive was Top Gear presenter, Richard Hammond, who greeted her at the door to find her dressed in her pink racing suit.
It wasn’t just a quick poodle around town either; Hammond took Emilia to the track to show her exactly what the raging bull can do.
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 HR Owen for pulling out all the stops.’
