If, like us, you spent most of your school days sketching wild and futuristic cars on the back of your textbooks, the following few pages might just take you on a trip down memory lane. That’s because these are the winners of Rolls-Royce’s lockdown design competition, which tasked kids under the age of 16 with creating their dream Rolls of the future.
There were no rules or specified judging criteria, and the Rolls-Royce design team ended up picking four winners and three highly commended entries from the 5,000+ total.
Ours were mostly terrible back in the day – that’s why we got into writing about cars instead of drawing them – but this lot have some cracking talent and some properly wacky ideas. All seven were transformed into digital renders by the clever folk at Rolls too, and the four winners will apparently each get a chauffeur-driven journey to school with a best mate for company. Balling.
The winners were Bluebird II, The Capsule, Turtle Car and Glow, with Bolt, Prosperity and the brilliantly named House of Esperanto being highly commended. Fantastic work all round.
