A glamorous collection of early French motorsport posters has emerged for sale with a British auction house for £25,000.<br />
<br />
The earliest examples date from 1900 showing well-heeled Parisians chauffeured in vintage cars on the capital's streets.<br />
<br />
The vehicles are flanked by marching bands with passengers in their finest clothes to reinforce the element of prestige.<br />
<br />
There is a striking 1902 French poster of a British Mulberry car in the Scottish Highlands, while another celebrates the 1934 Grand Parade Vichy.
