If you thought the current trend of alphanumeric nameplates leaves most cars sounding like places on a bingo card, just get a load of the latest from Vauxhall. General Motors' British subsidiary has outfitted one of its Corsa hatchbacks with over 2,000 bingo balls hand-applied to a pastel bingo sheet all over the car's surface.
The one-of-a-kind promotional "art" car will be displayed at a special game event at an old church in Manchester, England. 500 participants will be on hand to play under the special Vauxhall's watchful eye, with a chance at winning one to take home for themselves... sans the bingo ball motif.

VAUXHALL CREATES BESPOKE BINGO BALL CORSA FOR SPECIAL EVENT
VAUXHALL MOTORS BINGO CLUB
1st December 2010 – 8.00pm till Midnight
The Monastery, Manchester, M12 5WF
On Wednesday 1st December Vauxhall Motors is teaming up with great music, design, and style talents to drive some bingo-fuelled excitement into a very, very old church in Manchester for a one-off night of high jinx and game madness.
After the astounding success of the Vauxhall Motors events in London (Vauxhall Skate, Vauxhall Ice Skate and of course Vauxhall Motors Bowling Club this summer), we've decided to hop in the car and head to the bright lights of Manchester for our next uniquely wondrous event.
We've tracked down a mysterious, yet infamous, bingo sect who can be found travelling in a pack from New York to Nottingham, Las Vegas to Leeds spreading their own bespoke bingo vision to the unsuspecting public. On 1st December they'll be putting on a Vauxhall Motors show like no other, with a brand new Vauxhall Corsa (worth over £10,000) up for grabs as the bingo jackpot.
Ahead of the evening Vauxhall has provided a sneak preview of a unique four-wheeled art commission that will act as the event centrepiece.
The special Corsa has been wrapped in an eye-catching pastel bingo sheet design with over 2,000 bingo balls carefully stuck on by hand around car contours and features. The colourful bespoke car will even house the bingo cage on the roof. The car will take pride of place at the event, resting on the church altar!
Providing music to watch balls fly, Northern legend and British fashion icon Henry Holland and Manchester DJ Rob Ellis (Galaxy FM) will be on hand to entertain during game interludes.
Tickets are FREE but strictly limited to 500. To be in with a chance of getting your dabbing fingers on an exclusive ticket to the bingo bonanza of the decade, please email email@example.com with your full name (every ticket comes with a +1).
So, start practicing your bingo lingo, as we wait for no man when it comes to calling those balls. Be warned: This is not bingo as you know it.
