The individual who purchased Marcus Rashford's damaged vehicle has successfully restored it to working condition, although significant safety issues persist.

YouTuber Mat Armstrong invested £184,000 at an auction to acquire the Manchester United forward's previous car, a custom Mansory Black Badge Wraith, which had been declared a total loss following an accident Rashford was involved in.

Upon learning of Armstrong's intention to repair the luxury vehicle, Rashford's team provided assistance by supplying a spare key, the ghost code, tracker information, and various accessories totaling thousands of pounds in value.

The ghost code, essential for preventing theft, was crucial in getting the Rolls-Royce operational once again. Additionally, Armstrong obtained another old Rolls-Royce for spare parts, a decision that proved beneficial in the restoration process.

After a 36-minute video documenting the repair efforts, Armstrong successfully started Rashford's car and drove it around private property. However, numerous safety concerns, including the absence of brakes and airbags, prevent the vehicle from being roadworthy.

Despite the challenges, Armstrong expressed his delight at the progress made, acknowledging the significant amount of work still required to address the car's issues fully.

To restore the vehicle, Armstrong and his team had to repair various components, including the air suspension unit, wheel hubs, fuel tank, crash bar, and broken horn. Obtaining spare parts directly from Rolls-Royce would have been prohibitively expensive, prompting them to use another old Rolls-Royce as a donor car.

While the restored Rolls-Royce still requires extensive work, it is gradually returning to its former glory after being written off initially.
