Toyota Dream Car Art Contest 2016 Entries

We’ve had a great response to our first ever local Ron Brooks version of the Toyota Dream Car Art Contest, with over 70 children in the Mansfield & Ilkeston areas submitting designs. We’d like to thank all who took part as well as the schools that encouraged their pupils to enter. We had a gallery on our showroom window for a week before they were sent off to Toyota HQ for the national competition, and customers and staff alike commented on the brilliance of the imagination that had gone into all of the entries.

Toyota Dream Car Art Contest

There have been some weird, wacky and wonderful entries for this year, but that’s what it’s all about – drawing your dream car, and your definition of a dream car is totally different to someone else’s. We’ve had a lot of animal-themed entries, including a Tortoise, a fish, a shark, a cat, a unicorn, a cat, a dog and even a bee! There are cars that fly, cars that go underground, cars that swim and some that do all three! Cars that run on rubble and flowers, cars shaped like fruit, cars that go into space, and even one shaped like an apple, aptly named the “Toyota Fruit Car”. Check our the full gallery of entries below.

Unfortunately there can only be one winner (of our local competition) however, and the prize of Alton Towers tickets goes to…..


A huge congratulations to Betsy, age 11, who designed “The Turtle Transport” Dream Car. We were won over by the vibrant, colourful design as well as the amount of effort and thought that went into it. The Turtle Transport is particularly impressive because it can walk, swim and even fly thanks to the propeller on the top of its shell, while the shell itself is made up of solar panels and that’s how it is powered. We’re also a fan of the Toyota logo-shaped steering wheel! Below is the winning picture.

We think you’ll agree that Betsy was a worthy winner. However, if you or your child entered and did not win our local contest, don’t be disheartened! All of the entries have been submitted to Toyota GB Head Office for the national contest, and just because they didn’t win our prize doesn’t mean they won’t win the National prize (an iPad and possibly a trip to Japan for the world final).
