The Rolls-Royce car that star actor and director Richard Attenborough bought after scooping two Oscars for his hit film Gandhi has gone on sale for £15,000.<br />
<br />
The late Lord Attenborough snapped up the Rolls-Royce Corniche in the wake of his Oscar success with the 1982 flick, a biopic of the life of Indian peace activist Mahatma Gandhi.<br />
<br />
Attenborough drove the beloved car right up until his death in August last year, and it is sold with 177,000 miles on the clock - but it no longer works and is in need of restoration to make it roadworthy again.<br />
<br />
The motor is tipped to fetch £15,000 when it goes under the hammer at a Bonhams auction in Beaulieu, Hants, along with Attenborough's personalised number plate RA III.
