Rolls-Royce has pulled the covers off a special model for poorly children.

To launch the new vehicle, Rolls-Royce Motor Cars welcomed two patients from the hospital's paediatric unit - Molly Matthews and Hari Rajyaguru - to the Goodwood manufacturing base, where they saw the auto unveiled before test-driving it on the production line.

When you think Rolls-Royce, the words "big" and "opulent" don't merely walk past your thoughts and say hi.

The Rolls-Royce SRH, officially unveiled at the company's Goodwood headquarters on Wednesday, was built specifically for children awaiting an operation at St Richard's Hospital Pediatric Day Surgery.

Seating just the driver, the Rolls-Royce SRH is powered by a 24-volt gel battery driving an electric motor that propels the vehicle to a top speed of 10 miles per hour (16 km/h).

Molly Matthews, eight, and Hari Rajyaguru, seven, were chauffeur-driven to Rolls-Royce's headquarters in Goodwood where they tested the SRH around the factory. Like a full-size Rolls-Royce, it comes with a two-tone exterior paint finish complete with hand-painted coachline. The experience of "self-drive to theatre" aims to reduce child patient stress.

"We know boys and girls alike will love driving it and in the coming years it will help turn a daunting experience into a more fun and enjoyable one for hundreds and hundreds of children".

The interiors, with the two-tone steering wheel, seats and self-righting wheel centers colour-matched to the St James Red coachline, make the SRH more of a kid's chariot.
