Fake DeLorean suddenly appears…

No-one is quite sure what happened, but a fake DeLorean suddenly materialised in the line-up of Bangers4BEN cars that are scheduled to be sold at BCA Blackbushe on Friday, 30 October.

The car has beamed in from 1991, where it started life as a Volkswagen Scirocco 1.8 GT. Fresh from competing in the Car Dealer magazine Bangers4BEN rally, it is finished in the appropriate gun metal grey and boasts the enhanced – but totally fake - fission powered engine and flux capacitor necessary for conducting time travel (if you believe everything the movies tell you).

A true head turner, potential owners will be delighted to learn that you don’t need to wait for lightning to strike the clock tower to get the car started. Additionally, at no time has the car been seen flying or vanishing in a cloud of sparks.

The fake DeLorean is just one of over 40 cars BCA will be selling on Friday, 30 October to raise money for BEN - the UK’s only dedicated charity for those who are working or have worked in the automotive industry and their dependents.

Buyers will be presented with a great selection of vehicles, including unique customised examples such as the Star Wars Audi A4 convertible, Fiat Cinquecento ‘Big Bird’, Mercedes F1 Medical Car, the ‘Mello Yello’ Suzuki Liana and the MG styled as a USA Navy Fighter Plane.

The Bangers4BEN rally cars will be offered for sale at BCA Blackbushe at 1.15 pm on Friday, 30 October, 2015.
