Are You Crazy Enough To Buy One Of Top Gear's Lamest Icons?!

For Sale

Top Gear cars aren't all they're cracked up to be.

If you're a fan of the BBC show Top Gear there is good news! No, not more babble about some newDacia, but good news that the former reasonably priced car is now available forpurchase. Yes the reasonably priced Vauxhall Astra Tech Line with a 116-horsepower 1.6-liter engine in power red is now for sale on eBay with a currenthigh bid of "just" £8,100 or around $12,000. The seller notes that all proceeds from the sale will go to the Motor and Allied Trades Benevolent Fund which helps people in hardship or distress.

The Astra has only 2,908 miles on theodometer, but keep in mind that they were all done on a racetrack. The seller has included a list of modifications to the car such as front Corbeau Sprint Racing seats with 5-point safety beltharness and a full roll-cage. In order to accommodate the roll cage, theairbags have been disabled, meaning that in order to drive it legally on theroad you would need to remove the roll cage and seats. What you are essentially bidding on is a track toy that was once tossed around the track by celebrities such as Will Smith and Hugh Jackman. This may be your only chance to buy a celebrity-driven car for relatively cheap that is also known to 350 million people around the world!
