A rare Ferrari has gone under the hammer for a record breaking £10.7 million at the Goodwood Festival of Speed in West Sussex.
The 375-Plus model, fitted with a 4.9 litre V12 engine, broke the world record auction price for the manufacturer's luxury cars.
The racing car, which was Ferrari's ultimate weapon to win the 1954 Sports Car Championship, was also the third highest price paid for any car sold at Bonhams auction house.
The sports car was entrusted to only be driven by the most skilled racing drivers and these included Argentinian Jose Froilan Gonzalez and the renowned Italian road racer Umberto Maglioli.
