A photograph taken just before a massive car crash which ended Giulio Foresti's world land speed record bid has sold for £45.

The image was taken on the 26th of November 1927 and shows Foresti in his Djelmo Racer travelling at 150mph-just moments before he lost control and was catapulted from the cartwheeling car.

The image was sold to a Carmarthenshire County Museum volunteer.
