Two cars owned by former Rolling Stones bassist Bill Wyman sold for more than £82,000 at auction.

A 1971 Citroen Maserati SM fetched £61,980 and a 1966 Mercedes-Benz 250 S went for £20,700, both including buyers' premium, at the Bonhams Festival of Speed Sale at Goodwood, West Sussex.

Wyman drove the cars to studios during the recording of several famous Stones albums, including Beggars Banquet (1968), Let It Bleed (1969), Exile On Main St (1972) and Tattoo You (1981).

Before the sale Wyman (78) spoke of his love for the cars. He said: "I had the very first Mercedes that featured blacked-out windows. I got stopped all the time. The police usually just wanted to see who was in it."
