The WCS challenge: What's the best white coloured car you can find for £3000?

A very unusual competition awaits in the fifth edition of our weekly car sale challenge: will you win the 250 tribe coin reward?

I'd like to start by apologising for posting the weekly challenge a day late this time around: I've been inundated with university work of late as it's my last term as an undergraduate student. I will try and maintain Monday afternoon posting as of next week!

The colour spectrum is an amazing thing. Not only does it represent freedom and equality these days, but also an evergreen palate for creativity and expression. Just ask Yiannimize: the man who wraps customer cars in audacious colour schemes, and garnishes them with a selection of vinyl's and decal's to make them truly unique.

There is no one colour that can stake a claim for looking good on every single car, I think that's fair to say. Even the primary colours of red, blue, and yellow, can look out of place at times. But white (or black?) is perhaps the closest thing to a universal, or generic, colour that we have. It's seen as a building block upon which to paste further ideas and carry out trials.

White/black coloured cars might even be the most common sights on the road, though, don't take my word on that. I mean, one massive positive in driving a white car is that any bird that wishes to defecate on it, mid-flight, won't then look as apparent as it would on a car that has complexion. I don't think that alone is a reason to own a white car, but you know .. you have to try and find a positive in everything, don't you? On with our usual recap ..

Ok seriously, don't tell me you're reading this article and you STILL don't know what these challenges are about? Fine, I know there are a few of you out there who do fall into that category, so click here for a refresher to help you catch up to speed.

So, last week I set readers the task of finding the most unreliable car you could, for a budget of £10,000 (which was slightly too generous, I think). You'd then be put in the unique position of putting a friend, or someone you'd most like to prank, behind the wheel of that car and sending them up the ''Killar to Kishtwar road'' in India. This perilous road consisted of a 70 mile-long ribbon of mud and rock, and climbed as high as 11,500ft in places. It's pretty similar to the Death Road that our beloved trio went up in Bolivia, except this is … higher, and scarier, and even narrower.

Needless to say, this did spur some quite controversial answers, a host of unreliable cars, and ingeniously villainous thinking. This week I won't be counting down, and will instead go straight through to the winner, but there was one entrant in particular that I found particularly amusing:

Onious W has a habit of always performing in these challenges, and would've won this week with his quite hysterical entry, but for one, even more terrible car:

''As reliable as a geriatric's erection'' - *laugh out loud*

One thing I find particularly amusing about these challenges are the reasonings that people give for choosing what they've chosen. The Seville is notoriously known as one of the worst cars that America has ever produced, and when you pair this with a comedy description that Jack Whitehall would be proud of, we've got a unanimous winner. Well done to Jesse Billington, who wins last week's challenge and with it, the 250 tribe coin reward!

ON TO THIS WEEK'S CHALLENGE:

I understand that beginning a motoring-related article on a website for petrolhead's by talking about rainbows and colour palates is quite unusual, but hopefully all will make sense now. This week's challenge, and one that I agree is a very, very abnormal one is as follows:

What's the best ''fast'' car you can find for under £3000 that's in WHITE

I realise that the term ''fast car'' is quite vague, but for the sake of this challenge, anything that was designed to have some grasp of the concept of speed, or a bit of performance-y attitude, will be accepted. Note: the entrants MUST be in white, anything that's even vaguely off will not be accepted as a credible entrant. Here's my pitch:

Look at this gem, for just two grand at that! You just know that it's had a boy racer inside it at least once - something that it has in common with plenty of people from Essex.

Now, over to you guys. I'm expecting some truly comical entries for this, and I can't wait to see how tragic they are. Remember to take this challenge with a pinch of salt: not everything has to be serious! Good luck and Godspeed boys and girls.
