A magnificent Mercedes car taken as the spoils of war by an Allied soldier in Germany is to be sold for an estimated £6m after a court ruling returned it to the grandchildren of its original owner.<br />
<br />
The 1935 Mercedes-Benz 500K Special Roadster spent 70 years in the US before it was bought by a Dutch car enthusiast who took it to Germany.<br />
<br />
The car was seized on behalf of the relatives in German industrialist Hans Prym and a court later ruled they were the rightful owners. They are now selling at auctioneers Bonhams.
