Santa visits Birmingham Children’s Hospital in a Ferrari GTC4Lusso T

Autosport International Ferrari Santa

Most believe that Father Christmas delivers his gift by means of sleigh and magical reindeer but the Bearded One decided to plump for something slightly more impressive when he visited Ward 1 at Birmingham Children's Hospital earlier this week.

Santa arrived fully loaded with a sack full of Ferrari teddy bear gifts for the children, which were stashed in the boot of a luxurious and powerful Ferrari GTC4Lusso T.

The heart-warming stunt saw Autosport International and Ferrari team up with the Rays of Sunshine Children's Charity, which brightens the lives of seriously ill children by granting their wishes and granting hospital ward wishes, to deliver some Christmas cheer.

According to Kate Woodley, Show Director for Autosport International, the stylish Santa made more wishes come true when he showed children around the turbocharged V8 supercar, which is capable of rocketing from 0-60mph in just 3.5 seconds.

Woodley said: "We are so happy that Santa could pay the youngsters at Birmingham Children's Hospital a special visit at what is arguably his busiest time of year.

"There is surely no better way for his presents to arrive than in a Ferrari, the iconic marque which will be playing a feature role at our show in the New Year".

Emma Walsh, TV personality, singer and social media star, was also on hand to help Santa deliver some seasonal cheer to some of the children aged from just six days to 17 years old.

Rays of Sunshine Children's Charity was set up to brighten up the lives of children with serious and life-limiting conditions aged between 3 and 18 across the United Kingdom and grants individual wishes, hospital ward wishes and hosts outings and events for large groups of seriously ill children.
