German police have recovered a 1980s Ferrari worth more than 2 million euros (£1.7m) which was stolen during a test drive.

Officers are searching for a man who is believed to have sped off with the car while posing as a would-be buyer.

The red Ferrari 288 GTO, first registered in 1985, is believed to have belonged to ex-Formula One driver Eddie Irvine who raced for Ferrari between 1996 and 1999.

The Ferrari was recovered on Tuesday in the nearby Grevenbroich area, where it was hidden in a garage.

Police are still seeking the thief and released a picture on Wednesday of a middle-aged man, and have appealed for witnesses to come forward.
