Damien Hirst car to raise Aids cash

A car transformed into an artwork by Damien Hirst is set to raise hundreds of thousands of pounds when it is auctioned off at Sir Elton John's White Tie and Tiara Ball.
Hirst is known for his spin paintings - and the buyer of his latest creation will be able to take the valuable work out for a spin.
The candyfloss pink paint-splattered Audi A1 car has been spin painted by Hirst in his Gloucestershire studio and is described as "fully driveable and road legal".
The annual glitzy bash is held at Sir Elton's home with partner David Furnish and raises money for the Elton John Aids Foundation.
This year's event will be held on Thursday.
