THE CONCOURS of Elegance 2017 will be bringing a very special piece of history to Hampton Court Palace this September; the first-ever car to receive a speeding ticket.

The 1896 Arnold Benz Motor Carriage was travelling at four times the speed limit, at a heady 8mph, before being pulled over by a policeman on a bicycle.
