To launch the Vauxhall UK Beatbox Championships 2010 - the annual event that celebrates the country's best human beatboxers - Vauxhall Motors has created a unique, bespoke, working microphone shaped like its Corsa model. The creation involved a team of artists, who made a Corsa-shaped mold before intricately wrapping it in wire mesh. The mold was then removed and the car-head affixed to a Shure SM58 microphone. The inside is hollow so the microphone is fully functioning and allows beatboxers to use it in the competition.
This great piece of kit, which is the only one in existence, will be presented to the winner of the grand final on 25 June 2010, where they will receive the prize of a Vauxhall Corsa SXi and, of course, the title of UK Beatbox Champion 2010.
