Pediatric patients roll up to surgery in mini Rolls-Royce

WEST SUSSEX, England (KTRK) -- Undergoing surgery is a tough thing for any kid to go through, but one luxury automaker is trying to make the process a bit more fun.

Rolls-Royce has constructed a mini electric car for patients at Saint Richard's Hospital Pediatric Day Surgery Unit in England. Young patients zoom through the hallways in the tiny car on their way to the operating room.

The automaker said the cars help the kids feel less stressed as they head into surgery.

For now, the little whip is one of a kind -- Rolls-Royce has no plans to produce more for different hospitals.
