How Much Would You Pay For This Jeremy Clarkson-Driven Ford Sierra Cosworth?

For Sale / 5 Comments

It will probably go for way more than Clarkson "paid" for it.

Not too long ago, the 1996 BMW M3 that was driven by Richard Hammond in Top Gear's cheap sport saloon challenge was offered for sale. Now, Classic Car Auctions, the same company that sold the M3, is offering yet another car from this Top Gear challenge. This time, it's the Ford Sierra RS Cosworth that was driven by Jeremy Clarkson. You may remember the car from Season 15 of Top Gear where it achieved a higher ADAC road-worthiness score than either May or Hammond's car.

The car was assembled in Belgium (as joked about in the episode) and is powered by a 2.0-liter 201-hp engine. The car has 82,000 miles on the clock and could originally do 0-60 mph in 6.3 seconds and hit 150 mph (although Clarkson could only hit 142 on the Autobahn).

The car only cost Clarkson £5,000 ($7,059), which was the budget for the episode. However, the Sierra Cosworth it estimated to sell for around £13,000 to £16,000 ($18,355 - $22,577). That is the power of being once driven by Jeremy Clarkson. What would you pay for a Clarkson-driven car?
