When The Grand Tour first began back in 2016, the presenters, Jeremy Clarkson, Richard Hammond and James May each bought themselves a company car. Weirdly, they all chose the three-wheeled Reliant Robin and their company logo was printed onto the side of each car.
Now, James’ white Robin is for sale on Ebay, as he made known on Twitter:
My old Reliant is for sale. Historic vehicle with excellent provenance. Never driven by Princess Anne.https://t.co/Y5rqvs5ozt

The car isn’t currently owned by James May, but he himself has confirmed that it was the car he previously owned. But surprisingly, despite the car’s owner history, it’s only currently sat at £2,000 after 7 bids, but with 8 days to go, it has the time to go up in price massively if it gets found by the right people.
The advert reads:
**Re-advertised due to previous buyer falling through**
Of course, signs of being sat may be prevalent, but this is nothing a bit of TLC can’t fix.
So, if you’re interested in owning a bit of Grand Tour history, make sure you keep an eye on the bidding! Until then, let’s take a trip back to Top Gear’s brilliant Reliant Robin film:
