The Official and Unofficial World Cup Car.

They say the South Africa 2010 FIFA WORLD CUP is  on WHEELS and on sale. The Hyundai i10, customised by car artist Andy Saunders to celebrate Hyundai's association with the 2010 World Cup, is up for sale on e-Bay charity's sake. Auction bidding is expected to start at USD 1995,00 and bidding will end 10th of August, 2010.

The owner of this one pictured in Mpumalanga, South Africa, would also make it available to the losing bidder, the way they do it for the 3rd and 4th place in the World Cup.

The Hyundai i10 is covered in turf with a soccer ball on its roof! It's one of the two i10 football cars. It has "grass" bodywork and interior, a giant soccer ball on the roof and goalposts fixed to the A-pillars .

The car also has had a "celebrity" past: before its conversion this was one of two i10's lent to Jeremy Clarkson Top Gear for his 2009 DVD "Duel".

Somehow, Ithink you have to mend your ways with traffic cops first. Which one is your pick?
