The that almost killed Richard Hammond is up for sale on eBay. The car is the current each way land speed record holder at 301 miles per hour.
This is a 30 foot monster that could never be described as “road worthy”, but after Hammond got his hands on it truthfully it’s described as a “little worse for wear” (or in other words a total wreck). Mind you, they have a few spare parts so you might be able to get it running again…
All in all it’s not a bad motor considering it’s over a quarter of a century old. Even with the damage inflicted by Hammond it’s probably cheaper to get this one running again, than to build a similar vehicle from scratch.
started at Â£2500.00 and has already climbed to almost Â£5000.00. The auction closes at 7am on 30th December.
