<br />
A vintage BMW that originally belonged to Prince William's godfather has emerged for sale at auction for a world-record £2.2m.<br />
<br />
The 507 Roadster was delivered new to Prince Constantine of Greece in 1959 and was one of the most sporty and stylish cars of the era.<br />
<br />
Constantine, who later became the last King of Greece between 1963 and 1974, was a keen athlete in his youth and even won a rowing gold medal at the 1960 Olympics.<br />
<br />
He wanted a car to reflect his sporty personality and the stunning 507 fit the bill perfectly.<br />
<br />
The white classic has a V8 engine and is capable of around 120mph, a fact which no doubt appealed to the young Prince.
