The £200,000 Fiat 500
- Painted by artist Tracey Emin
- Raises money for kids' charity
- Tony Blair, Uma Thurman and Liz Hurley at auction
A Fiat 500 has sold for £200,000.
However, it was no ordinary Fiat 500, but one painted by English artist Tracey Emin.
It was sold at a charity auction in London last week, in aid of the ARK (Absolute Return for Kids).
The charity supports child-oriented projects, including helping children affected by HIV in Africa, children in care in Eastern Europe, and inner-city education in the UK.
More than 1200 guests attended the auction, including former Prime Minister Tony Blair, the actress Uma Thurman and model Liz Hurley.
Another Tracey Emin-designed Fiat 500 sold for £42,000 last October. Emin has painted four in total, with two more still to be sold.
