Hyundai World Cup Soccer Car Raises $7,800 For Charity

Still got World Cup fever. What’s the cure? Take ride in a Hyundai football car and call us in the morning.

To celebrate their association with the 2010 Football World Cup, Hyundai UK commissioned two very special i10s – and now, one of them has been sold for £5005 (that’s about $7,808 U.S.) on eBay.

The football cars were designed by car artist Andy Saunders, which showcases grass bodywork (AstroTurf), a giant football on the roof and goal posts. The 09-plate 1.2-liter Hyundai i10 World Cup football car comes with seats that were trimmed in plastic grass coverings, while the dashboard is painted white to go along with the soccer theme. This particular model was one of two Hyundai i10s lent to Jeremy Clarkson for his 2009 video Duel (you can watch the video after the jump).

Proceeds of the sale will go to BEN, which is a UK automotive industry charity for those who work, or have worked, in the automotive and related industries, as well as their dependents.
