“We were overwhelmed by the number of entries we received.

“Lewis’ design instantly captured our attention due to his creative use of characters and colours. Clearly he is talented and his passion for superhero’s were certainly evident in his design.

“We are delighted to introduce two new family cars to our range and felt a competition aimed at young people would be an excellent way to showcase their arrival.”
