A vintage Jaguar racing car was snapped up on Friday for a world record price of more than £2 million.
The 3.4-litre car was the first Jaguar D-Type to roll off the production line in 1955.
The motor car with the chassis number XKD509, was sold for £2,201,500 following frantic bidding at the auction held at the Goodwood Festival of Speed in Chichester.
A British vintage car enthusiast bought the much sought after motor at the Bonhams sale. The price beats the previous world record set for a Jaguar car of £1,706,000 set in 1999.
The XKD509 was sold on behalf of the Littlewoods Football Pools family and was raced in America in the 1950s.
Hundreds of motor enthusiasts crammed in to the six-hour sale as more than 350 lots went under the hammer.
