When a mysterious man calling himself Mr W Wonka phoned Mansory - the German tuning company responsible for this and this - and asked them to build him a Rolls Royce Ghost completely from chocolate, people said it was crazy. People said it couldn't be done...
But Mansory is nothing if not dedicated. For months those inventive spannermeisters toiled, fashioning grab handles from nougat, indicator stalks from caramel and floor mats from that weird Revels filling that no one likes.

Now they have finished, and the result is magnificent. This is the Mansory White Ghost Limited, the first car ever constructed completely from confectionary-based products.
Through the addition of a pair of mint-chocolate turbochargers, even the Ghost's power has improved, up from 563bhp to a sickly-sweet 629bhp. Though photos are yet to be released, Mansory is believed to have fitted a trio of ‘storage pods' in the Ghost's boot, each ideally sized for carrying an orange skinned midget.
Sometimes we have been guilty of mocking Mansory's wares, but here we must applaud heartily. We await Mansory's rumoured ‘roast dinner' Bentley Mulsanne with bated breath.
