Who would be chauffeured around in a brash head-turner like this?

This Roller would have been perfect for tragic pop star Prince, of course, while Lady Penelope of Thunderbirds fame would be right at home.

The Royal connotations of the colour purple would suit The Queen down to the ground but the bodywork is rather too gaudy for a lady in her 91st year.

Her Majesty would surely decline a red carpet to this motor while controversial Leeds United owner Massimo Cellino – and his fellow Italians – consider purple to be unlucky.

This stunning £250,000 Rolls-Royce Ghost Series II will be hitting the streets of Huddersfield over the next few days to raise awareness for the Forget Me Not Children’s Hospice .

The almost-new chauffeur-driven Roller has been loaned to the Brackenhall -based hospice by Together For Short Lives, a charity which supports children with life-shortening conditions.

Together Short Lives, in turn, has been given the car for a year by Rolls-Royce to boost its fundraising efforts.

Staff, volunteers and lucky families will be travelling in style on a grand tour of West Yorkshire.

On Bank Holiday Monday the impressive motor will be parked up outside the Eureka Children’s Museum in Halifax where youngsters – and grown-ups – can pretend to be A-list celebrities.

Chauffeur David Green will be ferrying passengers around the area until Wednesday and said heads would turn.

“It’s the nicest place to be if you’re on the road,” said David.

“It’s very easy to drive and substantially easier than you would imagine. The most difficult aspect is the in-built safety system.

“Other drivers want to speed up and overtake and take pictures and if they pull in front rather too quickly the car automatically puts the brakes on.

“We’ve had people hanging out of windows taking pictures. They think there’s someone famous in the back. Sadly, most of the time, it’s only me!”

The purple finish is, in fact, a plastic covering. Underneath, the car is midnight sapphire, a tasteful navy blue.

Inside the driver and passengers are cosseted in beautiful ivory leather with sumptuous headrest cushions.

There are front and rear massage seats, TV screens, a fridge for the champagne, picnic tables and even lambswool footmats.

When the VIP is safely ensconced in the back they can close their own door – to give the chauffeur a rest – at the press of a button. Keep the button pressed and the door glides shut with a gentle clunk.

The hospice, which was closed for repairs after a fire in January, needs £3.8 million a year to stay open. Just 6% of its funding comes from the Government and the rest is raised through fundraising.
