Top Gear's "Star in a Reasonably Priced Car" Opel Astra up for sale

By Faiming_low on 18 Apr 2016 in Other News

Attached Image With the new season of Top Gear being filmed now, the old Astra used for their previous "Star in a Reasonably Priced Car" section, is now up for sale according to Carscoops.com. Up for auction now on eBay, the red five-door Opel Astra is equipped with a 1.6-litre petrol engine pushing out 115bhp and has only 4,680km on the odometer.

Attached Image Interestingly, the stock-looking car "is not suitable for street use" according to the ad. This is because the airbags were disabled in order to install a roll-cage and converting it back would incur quite a bit of cash. The ad also stated that the Opel Technical Team will work with the winning bidder to explain how the vehicle was adapted.

Earnings from this auction will support BEN, which helps unemployed automotive industry workers. The bid, at the time of writing, was £8,000 (S$15,380).

Since young, Fai Ming has always centered his life around cars. In fact his first word was 'car' and not 'mum' or 'dad'. Aren't kids cute?
