A rare Ferrari sports car found rusting in a French farmhouse under a pile of magazines has been sold for nearly $16m at an auction in Paris.

The Blue California Spider was hidden away for more than 50 years.

One of only 37 ever made, it was once owned by the French actor Alain Delon and was discovered alongside dozens of other classic models last year.

The BBC's Tim Allman reports.
