Italian dictator Benito Mussolini's official car, an Alfa Romeo convertible, has fetched €180,000($240,000) at auction in France, the auctioneer said Saturday.

An unnamed Russian museum bought the car, which needs complete restoration, at a sale in Caen-Carpiquet in northwestern France.

Originally fitted with a silver dashboard and handles, the car was custom-built in 1937 for Italian King Victor Emmanuel III before becoming Mussolini's official car, according to expert Xavier Aiolfi.
