The Reasonably Priced Car (Kia Cee’d) Is For Sale!

The Kia Cee apostrophe D that drove celebrities around the Top Gear track from season 15 to 19 is now on sale on Ebay! Check this link to have a look.

This 1.6 litre petrol Kia gave celebrities such as Matt LeBlanc and Tom Cruise (and let’s not forget the Stig) the track day of their lives as they attempted to set the fastest lap time at Dunsfold track. It replaced the Chevrolet Lacetti and was finally replaced by the Vauxhall Astra.

The fastest celebrity to go around the track in this South Korean car was Matt LeBlanc with a time of 1:42.1, the slowest being Louie Spence with a wet time of 1:53.7.

As I write this, the car is currently on a bid of £5,700, although the reserve is yet to be met. The page describes it being in ‘”excellent” condition – a status that is possibly a little exaggerated, and the roll cage and racing seats are still fitted.

Since it was retired from the Top Gear test track it has done another 4000 miles to count towards its current readout of 7150.

If you fancy your chances to grab the one and only Cee apostrophe D, then count your change and place a bid. I know you want to.

Alex started racing at a young age so certainly knows his way around a car and a track. He can just about put a sentence together too, which helps. He has a great interest in the latest models, but would throw all of his money at a rusty old French classic and a 300ZX. Contact: [email protected]
