One of Top Gear’s ‘reasonably-priced’ Astra is going up for auction.

The 2013 Vauxhall Astra Tech Line was used on the show between 2013 and 2015. Famous faces to have wrangled it around the famous Dunsfold circuit include Margot Robbie, Will Smith, Benedict Cumberbatch, Hugh Jackman and Kiefer Sutherland.

The full list of celebrities who tried their hand at a quick lap is displayed on the Astra’s bonnet, and the car comes equipped with bucket seats and a full roll all for the safety of the celebrities as they tried for Top Gear glory.

As for condition? It’s definitely had a hard life. It will have been looked after, though. It’s far from a museum piece, but it could be the perfect buy for a track-day novice and would be a great conversation starter.

The auction is “Coming Soon” and bidding via the Collecting Cars website.

The Astra isn’t the only bit of classic Top Gear fodder for sale either. Jeremy Clarkson’s specially-prepared rallycross BMW from Series 18 will be joining it.
