'car' is the definition.
I know nothing about this answer so I cannot tell whether it can be defined by this definition.

'a wash last of water brought in' is the wordplay.
'wash' becomes 'bath' (bath is a kind of wash).
'last of' suggests the final letters.
'brought in' indicates putting letters inside.
The last letter of 'water' is 'r'.
'bath' going around 'r' is 'barth'.

'needing' acts as a link.
