Not many seven-year-olds get to turn a brand new car into a tiger.
Josh Barnes beat off hundreds of other youngsters to design a livery for the latest Mini.
The competition was run by King's Lynn-based Listers Mini dealership.
The firm's sales manager Michael Jones brought the car to Howard Junior School, where Josh is a pupil, for its official unveiling.
'It's brilliant, we're so proud of him,' said class teacher Georgie Peate. 'There were a lot of entries from our school and from other schools.'

Mr Jones said the car would be used as a demonstrator and static exhibit at events.
'The idea is to get Josh his 15 minutes of fame around Norfolk,' he added.
