Nice to drive you, to drive you nice - If you play your cards right you could pick up Brucie's old Roller.<br />
<br />
 A classic Rolls-Royce, formally owned by the late Sir Bruce Forsyth, has emerged for sale, nearly 40 years after it was sold by the former Strictly Come Dancing host.<br />
<br />
The Rolls-Royce Corniche Convertible dates back to 1971 and was owned from new by the legendary entertainer until 1978.<br />
<br />
Since then it has had a string of other owners including Alpine Grant - the brother of musician Eddie Grant.<br />
<br />
The car itself is in pristine condition and its blue bodywork appears as new. <br />
<br />
Under the bonnet the car has a 6750cc V8 engine and could reach speeds of over 100mph.<br />
<br />
Over the years the soft top Corniche has been a real favourite for the rich and famous with other celebrities to own one including Paul McCartney, David Bowie, Tom Jones and Frank Sinatra.<br />
<br />
This one came into the possession of its current owner, and vendor in 2006, but now following Forsyth's recent death he has decided to sell it.<br />
<br />
It is being sold by H&H auctioneers, Cambridgeshire, and could be yours for £50,000
