There's just 24 hours left to bid on Hyundai's i10 football car, which was used for publicity during the World Cup.

With a day remaining, bids on the ebay-listed car currently stand at £3109, which means someone could bag themselves a bargain. A standard 09-plate 1.2-litre Classic on which this is based, will sell for around £5500 at a dealer; list price is £7725. Plus the balance of the five-year/unlimited mileage warranty remains.

As reported last week, it was produced by car artist Andy Saunders - a hugely talented and world-famous car modifier. The Hyundai i10 has ‘grass' bodywork and matching interior, a giant football on the roof and goal posts fixed to the A-pillars. In fact, this i10 has had a ‘celebrity' past. Before its conversion the i10 was one of two lent to Jeremy Clarkson for his 2009 DVD ‘Duel'. It's now being sold as part of a charity challenge. All the money raised will be handed to BEN, the automotive industry charity, as a donation.

Questions from potential owners have been coming in thick and fast for the one-off city car. Here are some of our favourites so far:

  • Can it be converted into a rugby-themed car? I'm interested in purchasing said vehicle, but I don't want people thinking I'm interested in a girls' sport.
  • Would you be interested in taking a Chevrolet Spark with fake wood stickers down the sides and a surf board on the roof in part exchange?
  • Won't I be offside as soon as I sit in the driver's seat?
  • I suffer from moles. Do you think that if I bought this car and parked it at my house the moles may try to burrow into it thinking the grass is real?
