A racy sports car owned by World War Two speed demon and flying ace Sir Douglas Bader has emerged for £120,000. <br />
<br />
The elegant Alvis TD21 was purchased by Bader, who is widely regarded as one of Britain's greatest ever fighter pilots, 15 years after he left the RAF.<br />
<br />
The Londoner managed to score 22 aerial victories during WWII despite having lost both his legs in 1931 while attempting aerobatic stunts. <br />
<br />
The TD21 will be sold in Chichester, West Sussex, on March 23.
