auction: August 2010 Archives

275x250.jpg A classic car - a 1949 Delahaye Type 175 Roadster - once owned by Diana Dors is set to sell at auction for around £4 million.

The French powder-blue car was owned by Dors before she was even old enough to drive it and it was bought as a gift by Sir John Gaul, a friend of Monaco's Prince Rainier.

Only 51 of the 20ft-long vehicles - which has completely-enclosed wheels and a transparent steering wheel - were ever made and it won top honours at countless motor shows.

Auctioneer Alain Squindo, said the "curvaceous, sexy and flamboyant" model be sold at an auction in California on 14 August… he's still talking about the car, right?
