    Emilia Palmer, an 8-year-old British girl suffering from lung problems, recently experienced her dream of riding in a pink Lamborghini with Richard Hammond, star of the BBC’s “Top Gear”.

    The charity that put the ride together was Rays of Sunshine, an organization that grants wishes to gravely ill children between the ages of 3 and 18.

    They orchestrated this one in a matter of days. Coordinating the wish involved getting Richard Hammond to Emilia’s home and having a Lamborghini Aventador Roadster donated, transported, and painted bright pink.

    For all of those efforts, the girl’s father expressed his deepest gratitude.

    He said, "This wasn’t just any old wish. This was a wish of a dying girl and I am obliged to all those involved…for us, as a family, to have a very bright day in what have been a dark few months."

    The surprise came just before the Palmers began the process of assessments to determine if Emilia is able to receive a transplanted lung.

    If she is and a donor is found, the surgery could give her as many as ten more years of life.
