    Not really. It's a bespoke, collectable, highly tuned and capable car. One older alternative would be something such as the Audi A1 Quattro – which cost £41k in '12. That's about £48k today. It's not a Fiesta ST-like affair. :)

    Should be plenty on offer (compared to GRMNs), due to homologation requirements.

    It’s still a Yaris though.

    And the Quattro was just an A1, but that didn't stop 'em selling...

    But for some reason people are willing to pay about 10k just for an Audi badge.

    Not gonna lie, I was actually genuinely impressed by this. Bucket seats, flares, lifted, the lot. Even registered as "multi-colour" with the DVLA and a 2.0 petrol which actually sounded a bit fruity.

    Edit:

    No wonder, it's a pretty dedicated recreation:

    Carrington spur road off the motorway near Sale, Cheshire, this pro footballer probably on the way to United's training ground, appears not to have the same skills behind the wheel of his lambo as he might show with a ball. I don't THINK this will polish out....

    Wonder what the rear hit, as that looks like it went straight under the barrier.

    It was Man Utds 2nd keeper Sergio Romero, he escaped uninjured, it was icy too down there.

    It's an old Range Rover with the body dropped on top. Nice enough guy owns it.

    Nice that they also put a "NOS" canister right where it can be rear ended :p
