Is this a piece of crap or a future collectible?
With Top Gear as we know it resigned to the history books, the time is ripe to pick up items of memorabilia from the show. And what better than a 1996 BMW M3 Evo that was driven by Richard Hammond during the Sport Saloon Challenge. The car will be crossing the block at Silverstone’s Classic Car Auction in June, and a bid in the region of $11,000 to $16,000 should be enough to secure it. Bear in mind the M3 was originally picked up for £5000 having suffered some serious crash damage and you’ll appreciate the reason for the cheap price.
As the auction house says: "This is a rare opportunity too; seeing as most cars that appear on the show are either converted into boats, electric people carriers, or destroyed in one of the show’s challenges, yet this one is ready to be driven away and enjoyed."
