Mussolini's car sells for record





A classic sports car, once owned by Italian dictator Benito Mussolini, has been sold for a record price for the model of vehicle.
The 1935 two-seater Pescara Spyder, one of only 60 made, attracted just a few bids when it went under the hammer in Cheltenham in February.

The best offer reached just over half the expected £800,000 and the owner chose not to sell at the time.

A private buyer has now bought it for £550,000, H&H Classic Auctions said.
