Vauxhall have donated arguably one of the most famous cars in the UK, the , to be auctioned off with proceeds going to BEN Motor and Allied Trades Benevolent Fund.
Celebrities including comedians Jimmy Carr and Warwick Davis, and singers Brian Johnson and Joss Stone launched the car, Top Gear’s fourth reasonably priced car which we first saw in 2014. Since then stars including Olly Murs who topped the leader board, Margot Robbie, Ron Howard and James Blunt all thrashed it around the Top Gear Test Track at Dunsfold Park, Surrey.
There’s one slight snag, the car isn’t road legal, the airbags have all been disabled and inner door panels have been altered to make room for the roll-cage but it does come with Front Corbeau Sprint Racing seats with 5 point safety belt harness. Vauxhall say “Please be aware converting the vehicle back into use on the public highway would incur significant cost“.
If you want an for thrashing around a race track, you’ll know that a ton of celebrities have had their bum in the seat you’ll be sitting in if you win the auction.
