Martin Ward, who happens to be a motoring journalist by trade by the way, accidentally bought Indiana Jones’s car.

The car in question is a 1964 Fiat 500, in spotless condition, and it looks amazing.

Ward, who hails from West Yorkshire in the UK, bought the classic Fiat 500 from a specialist.

He had been made aware the car had been used by Pinewood Studios in a movie but they didn’t tell him what for.

So Ward did his research, his due diligence, and found out the car had been driven by none other than Harrison Ford.

The 80-year-old actor drives the Fiat 500 in a car chase in the upcoming film Indiana Jones and the Dial of Destiny, the latest instalment to the Indiana Jones saga.

Speaking to the BBC, Ward said this may be “the most viewed Fiat 500 ever in the world”.

“This little car spent most of its life in Italy now ends up in Yorkshire,” Ward said. “You don’t have to drive it. I feel happy just sat in it.”

About the movie

Harrison Ford reprises his role as daredevil archeologist Indiana Jones as he races against time to retrieve a mythical dial before his antagonist Jurgen Voller can.

Voller (Mads Mikkelsen) is a former Nazi who’s currently working for NASA under a fake identity.

His plan is to use this dial to travel back in time and kill Hitler in order to lead Germany to victory in the war.

As this time-traveling dial is the whole point of the plot, the movie is set in the 1940s, 1950s, 1960s and… 212 BC.

A bit confusing, we know.

The film also stars Fleabag actress and screenwriter Phoebe Waller-Bridge as Indiana’s goddaughter, and Antonio Banderas.

This’ll be the last movie starring Harrison Ford as Indiana Jones, which explains the $295 million budget.

Indiana Jones and Dial of Destiny is scheduled to be released in the States on June 30.
