This is the most beautifully honest eBay listing we’ve ever seen

When someone's affectionate nickname for their car is 'Satan', then you know they probably don't have the best relationship with their vehicle.

Rachel Young is the woman responsible for one of the most refreshingly honest ebay listings that we've ever seen.

Not for her flattering photos, forgetting to mention problems and issues and painting a rose-tinted version of her item. No, this is warts and all, and it's absolutely glorious.

She writes that her "absolute piece of excrement" 2004 Mini Cooper S has "caused me more issues than the entire breakdown of my marriage" and that "I cannot put into words how much I hate this piece of shit, I'd rather have a limb off or my mentally unstable ex husband back than drive this arsehole a second longer".

Don't hold back, honestly, please don't.

It's got 95,000 miles on the clock and has been beset by problems which she gleefully details. However, this hasn't put potential owners off, with the price up to £6,500 after 48 bids at the time of writing.

Check out the whole glorious post below and if you fancy getting your hands on Satan, head here.

    I had it ONE day in fact within an hour of driving it it blew up! Had to be towed the entire lifetime of my drive back to find the head gasket had blown! The garage then took 11 days to fix it in which I was given a courtesy car from 1974 that drove backwards! I had it back 45 whole minutes and off it went again this time the radiator and the piston rings had gone... 9 days later I'm back in my little metal delight obviously on its best behaviour as I'd just shelled out a grand for it!

    Yesterday my non diesel monstrosity was making a lovely sound like a diesel only it's not! The plungy thing on the timing thing has gone so it's fixed yippee but hell bent on giving me a nervous breakdown this morning rev'd up to the same noise whilst also losing water! The garage tell my blondeness this is what minis do and the sound of a steam train I'm told is cool!!! So the whole timing kit is now fitted along with something else I can't be arsed to look in my messages to find out what but it's fixed! It'll be fixed tomorrow £200 thanks!

    If you want it have it it's awful but on the plus side there is not one bit of it that can now possibly break so in the car world is now classed as reliable in all honesty I'd rather have thrush but take a look, any questions will be greeted through gritted teeth and angered responses!!! 

    Happy Bidding
