There were cheers when the hammer went down on the 1987 car, which had just 7,349 miles on the clock.

Consultant Guy Snelling, who helped handle the auction, said: “It was bought by someone in the room. We were just over the moon, properly over the moon. It hadn’t moved since 1991, it was a real time warp.”

Cosworths are prized because they offered Ferrari performance at a modest price and few are left in tip-top condition.

 The price tag is more than four times the original cost of the RS Cosworth motor

It was bequeathed to a family friend, who sold it complete with original bill of sale and MoT.

It was sold in King’s Lynn by Anglia Car Auctions, which said it needed new tyres to pass its MoT.
