A car used by fictional mobster Tony Soprano was a hit at a Boston auction, selling for nearly 120,000 dollars (£79,000).

The white 2003 Cadillac Escalade used during the final three seasons of the HBO series The Sopranos was an "instantly recognisable prop" from the acclaimed show, RR Auction executive vice president Robert Livingston said.

The SUV was used for some action sequences and exterior shots involving characters including Soprano himself, played by James Gandolfini. The late actor signed the inside of the Escalade in three places.

No information was provided about the buyer, who paid 119,780 dollars.

A 1999 Chevrolet Suburban from the show's first four seasons previously sold for 110,000 dollars (£72,300).
