A classic Mercedes that belonged to motorsport icon and legendary playboy James Hunt has emerged for sale at auction.<br />
<br />
The 560SEC was owned by 'Hunt the Shunt' between 1988 and 1991 at a time of his life when he was incredibly short of money.<br />
<br />
As a result, the German coupe was gifted to him by an anonymous benefactor and he used it as his daily vehicle for three years.
