Singapore's First Life-sized Seashell Race Car @ Royal Plaza on Scotts - WW


Saw this creative life-sized seashells race car displayed outside Royal Plaza on Scotts (RP). The hotel created the first life-sized seashells race car in the world to celebrate Singapore's seventh night motor racing season which will commence on 19 September.

The culinary team of 10 chefs and culinary staff, led by RP’s Executive Chef Darren Ong, took 1130 hours to complete this structure which measures 4.40 metres long, 1.90 metres wide and 1.30 metres tall. A total of 14,880 shells (scallops, clams, mussels and oysters) were collected to decorate the car. The shells are from seafood consumed at the hotel's buffets.

In previous years, the culinary team has created other life-sized race cars with chocolate, pasta,  macaroons and bread.
