The Queen’s Bentley Mulsanne limousine has gone on sale for just under £200,000 on Auto Trader in the UK. This rolling piece of history was reserved for exclusive use by the Monarch during a two-year period from 2012 to 2014 when the Bentley was retired from Royal duties.
The Mulsanne was pressed into service by the Queen during her Diamond Jubilee celebrations and for a unique visit to 10 Downing Street where she attended her first-ever cabinet meeting with Prime Minister, David Cameron, who greeted her on her arrival.
The limousine was first prepared and registered by Bentley in Crewe at its headquarters for exclusive use by the Queen.
The Royal wheels features several upgrades including walnut burr veneered picnic tables, door panels and rear quarter vanity mirrors. There are embroidered Bentley emblems to all seats and the car runs on optional 21-inch classic alloy wheels.
The interior boasts a full leather interior, air conditioning, driver information system and satellite navigation system, which has Windsor set as the home address.
The Mulsanne is powered by a muscular 6.75-litre engine with over 500bhp and is capable of dashing to 60mph in just over five seconds. The Bentley is capable of hitting a top speed of 184mph, but it is not known whether James didn’t spare the horses transporting her Majesty to one of her many pressing engagements.
This Ex-Royal Household Bentley Mulsanne covered less than 5,000 miles during its two-year service with the Queen and is now offered in immaculate condition having covered a total of 5,826 miles.
Prospect buyers can pick up a piece of unique automotive history for just under £200,000 in the year that the Queen herself celebrates her 90th birthday. The car is offered for sale by a dealership based in Bramley, Surrey.
Karolina Edwards-Smajda, Auto Trader Retailer & Consumer Products Director said: “Auto Trader has a long tradition of advertising unique and famous cars including recently Victoria Beckham’s own Range Rover Evoque, but few come with such Royal pedigree as this Bentley Mulsanne limousine. What makes this Bentley particularly stand-out is that it was reserved exclusively for use by her Majesty and it has gone on sale in the year the Queen celebrates her 90th Birthday.”
