Prime Minister set to sell 1971 Fiat 500

16th October 2012

Petrol-heads hoping to own a bit of motoring history may have to stump up as much as £12,000 if they want to get their hands on Prime Minister David Cameron's Fiat 500.

The car, which was bought by the prime minister for his wife, Samantha, some 14 years ago as a birthday present, is a classic 1971 Fiat 500, so it could be argued fans would be paying for the vintage, rather than the notoriety of the previous owner.

Nick Whale, managing director of Silverstones Auctions, who will be selling the car, said: "‘No matter what your political persuasion, this is one cool car and we are delighted to be able to offer it for auction at our sale in November as part of the Footman James Classic Motor Show weekend."

Fiat hit the headlines earlier this month when it announced the launch of its 500 Beach Cruiser Concept.

The car includes a wide body kit and comes with a roof rack which holds a surfboard.
