The Mercedes S500 was bought by the Beckhams in 2001 when the former Manchester United and England footballer was at his peak.

But the car failed to score with no one willing to meet the £7,000 reserve.

Robert George, co-owner of Anglia Car Auctions, said: “No one bought it.

“We have sold David Jason’s car, Jeremy Clarkson’s but no one wanted a bit of Beckham.

“If you have a lot of interest a car like this can fetch a bit but it is very difficult to give it a value.

“Its unique point is its previous owner.”

The car, which has a five litre engine, clocked up 117,000 miles since the former England captain bought it.

While David Beckham’s former vehicle did not set pulses racing a Nissan Micra built in the same year fetched £3,500. It had done just 59 miles.
