Actor Matt Smith’s car goes up for auction

Actor Matt Smith better known as Dr Who has decided to sell his very own time-machine, a silver Vauxhall Corsa he has owned since he was 18. It is being sold on the Ebay motor auction site with all the proceeds from the winning bid being donated to national children’s charity Starlight Children’s Foundation for which Matt is Ambassador.

The car has several significant features that Matt is particularly proud of including a wing mirror held on with gaffer tape and one or two strategically placed bumps and scratches which add to the cars authenticity as The Time Lord’s favoured mode of transport.

Affectionately called The Shed by many of Matt’s friends, the Corsa which Matt has had since new has been involved in many of his most memorable journeys to and from university in Norwich and to the National Youth Theatre and even to some of the Dr Who locations.  Latterly Matt asked his sister to drive the Corsa, keeping it in near perfect working order.

Alas as the car grows slowly older it is now in need of a more loving home particularly as Matt’s career now takes him away so often to far flung exotic locations where his trusty Corsa can not go! So it is with a heavy heart that Matt must bid “The Shed” farewell!

Matt Smith said

“While I have been travelling the universe in my TARDIS, my much-loved Vauxhall Corsa, aka The Shed, has been parked outside my parents’ house.  As my first ever car, it has seen lots of adventures, not to mention a fair few mishaps (hence the dents).  I’ll be very sad to see it go but I understand my parents want their driveway back!  I’d love to find a new owner for this great little car, particularly as all the profits will go to Starlight, which is an amazing charity that brightens the lives of seriously and terminally ill children.”

Starlight would like to thank the BBC and the team at Top Gear for allowing the use of the clip above!

What's a max bid?
Your max bid should be the highest amount you're willing to pay for an item.
We keep your max bid amount a secret from the seller and other bidders.
Max bidding example:
If a current bid is £20 and your max bid is £30, we bid £21 for you.
If no one else bids, you win and pay £21.
However, if someone else places a bid for £35, you will be out bid and the new highest bid on the auction will be £31. You will need to increase your max bid to more than £35 to be the highest bidder.
