The Queen's Bentley
up for sale
THE Queen's Bentley Mulsanne limousine, which was used for two years between 2012 and 2014, is up for sale at just under Â£200,000.
This rolling piece of history 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.
The limousine was first prepared and registered by Bentley at its headquarters in Crewe for exclusive use by the Queen.
The Mulsanne's satellite navigation system features Windsor as the home address
The Royal car 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 is full leather with air conditioning and a driver information system.
Power comes from a 6.75-litre engine with over 500bhp and the Mulsanne is capable of hitting 60mph in just over five seconds and on to a top speed of 184mph.
The ex-Royal Household Bentley Mulsanne covered less than 5,000 miles during its two-year service with the Queen and is now said to be in immaculate condition having covered a total of just 5,826 miles.
The car has been advertised on Auto Trader and is being offered for sale by a dealership based in Bramley, Surrey.
