A vintage vehicle once billed as 'the car of the future' has been rolled out and put on display at Maidenhead Heritage Centre.
The 1930s Burney Streamline is the latest to be showcased as part of the museum's exhibition focusing on the town's car manufacturing history.
The unique car was designed by Sir Charles Dennistoun Burney, whose firm was based in the Cordwallis Industrial Estate.
One of the first owners of the Streamline was Edward, Prince of Wales.
Heritage centre chairman, Richard Poad, said: "The loan of this car from a huge museum like Beaulieu is quite a coup for our small museum."
The car will be on display until mid-August and on Friday, August 1, families can enjoy a special tour of the exhibition and then design their own car for the year 2030.
The sessions will run from 11am-12.30pm and 2-3.30pm.
