Rolls-Royce professionally renders the design concepts of kids

Super-luxury brand Rolls-Royce has professionally rendered the dream cars of kids, as part of an international design competition. From 5000 submissions four winners were eventually selected, each in one of the following categories; technology, environment, fantasy and fun. Chenyang from China, aged 13, took the top prize in the technology category, with the Rolls-Royce Bluebird II. His streamlined design is powered by jet turbines, and is supposed to work on "land, water, and snow."

Promotional Ford Mustang to be auctioned for charity

Shannons are auctioning a Ford Mustang that was once used for Supercar Championship promotional duties. All proceeds from the sale will be donated to Camp Quality, a children's charity that supports kids aged 0-13 with cancer. The 'Velocity Blue' V8 manual example was originally used by Ford Australia as a media evaluation vehicle. It was factory-specified with 19-inch forged aluminium wheels, adaptive suspension and Recaro seats.
