Functional... £3.8m and you don't even get heated seats. <br />
<br />
A classic car bought by a British motoring enthusiast for £750 before it was nearly written off by a drunk driver has sold for £3.8m.<br />
 <br />
The 1932 Bugatti Type 55 roadster belonged to the late Geoffrey St John for over 50 years until his death last February.<br />
<br />
In 1994 he was badly injured when the motor was ploughed into by a drunk driver in France.<br />
<br />
Luckily the car - then valued at about £1m - could be salvaged and repaired.
