A CAR which belonged to Italian wartime dictator Benito Mussolini's mistress, Claretta Petacci, sold for 156,000 Swiss francs (pounds 67,000) at an auction in Geneva yesterday. The black Fiat 2800 coupe was bought by a Swiss intermediary for an unidentified American collector, said a spokesman for Brooks, the British auctioneers.
