This is Why You Don't Let Kids Design Cars

By Aatif Sulleyman on at

Ignoring the wishes of worn-out parents up and down the country, Bentley's decided to survey 1,000 kids aged between 6 and 12, to find out what their dream car would be like. As you can imagine, the car maker got some pretty ludicrous feedback.

Not a peep about fuel efficiency or Bluetooth connectivity. While we don’t envy the person whose job it was to tell the kids to get real, we’re glad to hear that there’s a charitable angle to the whole thing. Bentley and The Care2Save Charitable Trust have teamed up to raise money, which will go towards improving palliative and hospice care around the world. The Bentley by Me campaign went live this week, and runs until 14th August. By the way, you can win a Bentley Continental GT V8 if you take part.
