Former Argentine president Juan Peron and his wife Eva. <br />
<br />
A luxury Cadillac limousine once owned by Eva Peron and her husband Juan, the former president of Argentina, has emerged for sale for 260,000 pounds.<br />
<br />
The jet black motor was used to drive Peron, known by the affectionate nickname Evita, and her husband around capital city Buenos Aires on state duties.<br />
<br />
The left-hand drive 1951 Cadillac boasts a 5.4-litre, eight cylinder engine and has a black leather bench seat in the front and a beige cloth seat in the back.<br />
<br />
Incredibly the 63-year-old car has just 3,489 miles on the clock.<br />
<br />
The car is expected to fetch 260,000 pounds when it goes under the hammer on behalf of its owner in a Silverstone Auctions sale on September 4.<br />
<br />
Also included in the sale is a jewel found inside the car when it arrived in the UK from Argentina. It is thought to have come from one of Evita's dresses.
