The car called 'Rockin' to Rimini' is a Volvo V40 and it has been covered in artificial grass and has three holes on the top of it for people to try and chip plastic balls in to.

It was designed by a team called 'The 19th Hole' a group of four Attleborough police officers who drove it in the Rockin to Rimini challenge from Lille across to Rimini in June.

The team hoped to raise £5,000 for EACH for taking on the 860 mile trek.

Businesses including Robert Kemp Motors, Ridgins and Namgrass all helped prepare the car, which in keeping with the rules of the competition, cost less than £300.

The car is being auction on August 4 at East Anglian Motor Auctions in Wymondham.
