They Did A Good Job: Astroturf Covered Car For Sale

astroturf-car-1.jpg

This is an astroturf covered car for sale on eBay in Australia. Why cover a car in astroturf? Because that's what you do when you have a 1998 Mitsubishi Magna with 218,000 miles on it. That, or take the plates off and drive it into a river.

This is your once in a lifetime chance to own THE Astroturf Car! This car would be awesome for any business or private use as it draws more attention than a Ferrari (plus you don't look like a douche).


The car is a 1998 Mitsubishi Magna that was covered by 35mm high quality astroturf, looks better than your lawn! It drives well but needs some attention as it has a few leaks. Since you are awesome you won't care that it doesn't come with rego or safety certificate, but it does come with spare astroturf!

Admittedly, it does look like they did a pretty good job applying the astroturf. Arguably the best astroturf on a car that I've seen, and I've seen LOTS. Probably hundreds. "Hundreds?" Dozens. "Dozens?" Okay I feel like I've seen one before, and that one was shitty.

Hit the jump for a couple more shots.

Thanks to Jarrad, who's actually considering bidding and promised I could hit golf balls off the roof if he wins.

    Why bother with this? Lewis Hamilton is just going drive by and steal it all.

    Mate, i want to bid on this because of my love for the Magna(Dad had a 1997 executive) and my love for grass.

  • It's been done many, many times before: http://www.damncoolpictures.co...

    "it draws more attention than a Ferrari (plus you don't look like a douche)"

    If the attention you're looking to draw is laughter, you've succeeded.

    Just remember... driving a 200,000 dollar sports car makes you look like a douche and paying to have your car covered in turf is cool. He's obviously been smoking too much of that synthetic grass covering his p.o.s. car.

  • I'd paint the turf black with silver "highlights"

    If I was to buy this....well I would get a little action figure (Skelator or Optimist Prime) and a teeny tiny lawn mower. Then add them to the hood of the car.

    This just got more creative. ;)
