Dr Who's Vauxhall Corsa goes up for sale

A Vauxhall Corsa owned by Dr Who actor Matt Smith has gone up for sale on eBay.

Smith bought the 1.0-litre car when he was just 18, and has owned it ever since. He is now selling it in order to raise money for the children's charity Starlight Children's Foundation.

The eBay advert describes the car as having "several significant features" 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".

Smith has owned the car from new, driving it to and from university, as well as to auditions, acting jobs, and even some of the Dr Who locations.

However, with the car's increasing age, he says he's decided to let it go.

He adds: "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!"

All proceeds of the sale will go toward supporting the Starlight Foundation, which grants wishes to seriously and terminally ill children throughout the country.
