A 1963 Ferrari used in the hit film Charlie's Angles: Full Throttle could fetch as much as £3.5 million when it goes up for auction this week, according to experts.

The Ferrari 250 GT SWB California Spyder will be among 100 vintage cars coming under the hammer in London on Wednesday.

Alongside the Spyder will be a host of other famous cars including a Ford Thunderbird once owned by John Travolta, which could be sold for up to £30,000.

Another Ferrari up for sale is a 1965 LM Berlinetta which could fetch £2.8 million in the RM Auctions' sale in conjunction with Sotheby's at Battersea Evolution event arena on Wednesday.

Other cars coming under the hammer include a 1965 Aston Martin DB5 featured in the Robbie Williams music video for his hit Millennium and a 1953 Cadillac Series 62 Convertible State Limousine, as ordered for the Royal House of Belgium and used in the wedding of Prince Albert II and Princess Paola in 1959.
