Queen's ex-royal limousine fetches $70K at auction

Melbourne, Sept 01 (ANI): A Daimler Super V8 LWB limousine, which was once owned and driven by the Queen, has been sold for more than 69,970 dollars by auction house Historics at Brooklands.

Sporting a British Racing Green livery, the car was tested over 4000km pre-delivery miles before being handed over to the Queen in 2001, News.com.au reported.

The car was returned in 2004 to the Jaguar Daimler Heritage Trust, with which it is still registered, after further covering 17,700km while it was with the Queen.

It was sold out with all its specifications, including its original tyres.

One feature is a factory-adapted centre armrest that has a sliding holder specifically designed for the Queen's handbag, while another is its ashtray which was crafted to house the security lighting controls, which remain fully functioning. (ANI)
