A vintage Bugatti once owned by King Leopold III of Belgium has been sold for more than £9.5million at auction.
The Bugatti Type 59 sport was driven to victory in the 1934 Belgium Grand Prix by French racing driver René Dreyfus before being bought by the Belgian royal in 1938.
Leopold III, who reigned from 1934 until 1951, is the grandfather of the current Belgian King Philippe, 60.
The car changed owners several times in the decade since, but has remained in its original state.
The historic model had been expected to fetch £10million but eventually sold for £9.535million at London’s Gooding & Co last week.
The auctioneers claim it is the most expensive Bugatti ever sold at auction.
