At a price of $ 216,000, you can ride around, as if you were part of the nobility …
Bonhams London is holding an auction where several vehicles that were previously owned by members of the British royal family will be found. This international auction house will offer Queen Elizabeth II’s Bentley, Rolls Royce of Princess Margaret and the 1968 Land Rover Series IIA owned by the family.
Queen’s car has an estimated value between $190,000 and $216,000, while Rolls owned by Princess Margaret estimates between $84,000 and $108,000.
The Queen’s 2012 Bentley Mulsanne Saloon was primarily used for official occasions, such as her meetings with former Prime Minister David Cameron.
The Rolls Royce Silver Wraith II is a unique vehicle with details of the official royal coat of arms, a seat for police headlights and a raised rear bench, designed to make the princess could be seen through its windows. What is most interesting about this car is the fact that it was once borrowed to Princess Diana and former US President Ronald Reagan.
The Queen will not attend this auction, as they say from the Bonhams auction house. Security elements were removed from these cars before they were returned to the manufacturer, but the people who worked there forgot the navigation system in the Queen’s Bentley model. “When you press the Home button, satellite navigation will guide you to the Windsor Castle,” they say with a laugh from the auction house.
