|Odometer reading||83,000 miles|

The 'Write off World' website states this organisation is a community to promote love, peace and unity for positive change. What this actually translates as is the story of its founder, Mac Ferrari, who grew up in North London and from his particular vantage point; he witnessed poverty, crime and injustice teamed with the failure in education, the lack of youth provisions, misguided youth and demise of community spirit and values. Instead of adding to the problem, Mac noticed the difference that a little love, guidance and care could bring to the minds of many, both young and old.
With some help and guidance along the way, as well as his treasured BMW 645Ci, he launched 'Write off World'. The energy that came from these first few signatures was the confirmation that he needed that his 'crazy' idea was the 'never been done before' thing to do. "THIS WAS THE WRITE-OFF!" Mac said "Cars get written-off all the time in return for an insurance payout. I decided to write-off my car in a different way to create insurance for our futures". That insurance is a youth centre providing a safe haven for children and teenagers that they can connect with throughout their transition into adulthood.
With appearance all over the UK under his belt and over an estimated 25,000 signatures now applied, this BMW is now up there with the Lichtenstein, Hockney and Warhol 'Art Cars of the 70's and 80's.
Supplies with an MoT valid for 12 months, a service history as well as a complementary health check from BMW themselves, all funds including seller's commission, are to be donated to the project.
Everybody is invited to sign the car and by doing so, not only becoming a part of history but also contributing to the greater good.
