Bag yourself a right royal ride with this collection of classic motors

A collection of 12 cars formerly owned by royalty, politicians and celebrities is set to go under the hammer.

Fancy owning a car that once belonged to royalty?

If you’ve got a few grand going spare, you can get your hands on a car that once belonged to the Queen or Princess Diana.

Imagine sitting in the same seat the Queen has sat in every day!

An incredible private collection of 12 cars formerly owned by royalty, politicians and celebrities is set to go under the hammer.

Take a drive back in time
The magnificent classic motors include the Queen’s 2001 Daimler V8, Princess Diana’s 1994 Audi Cabriolet and Sir Elton John’s 2005 Rolls-Royce Phantom.

Cars from the Jewels in the Crown collection will be up for sale at Silverstone Auctions at its Classic Motor Show Sale at the NEC in Birmingham on 12th and 13th November.

Perhaps the most notable of the 12 cars is a 2012 Bentley Mulsanne, estimated at between £215,000 and £235,000, made by Bentley for the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee tour of Great Britain.

The fancy green vehicle comes with picnic tables, rear vanity lights and is decorated with royal crests.

It also has subtle security features, including front and rear blue flashing lights, as well as reinforced tyres and armoured protection. So you’ll be pretty safe in there.

Princess Diana travelled around 4,000 miles in her beloved 1994 Audi Cabriolet and was occasionally photographed in the car with Princes William and Harry.

If you’ve got a spare £60,000 burning a hole in your pocket and you like parchment leather interiors and cream carpets, this car is for you.

A winner’s car
If you’re looking to buy something that screams pop royalty rather than just run-of-the-mill royalty, how about a car that was once owned by Will Young?

The 1987 Bristol Brigand was owned by the Pop Idol star between 2009 and 2012.

Or if you’re a Michael Winner fan, his 1976 Bentley T1 is being auctioned off too.

Managing Director of Silverstone Auctions Nick Whale said: “It’s an honour for Silverstone Auctions to offer cars with such amazing provenance.

“We anticipate a huge amount of interest in these cars from across the globe. These cars have been wonderfully cared for over their lifetimes and we look forward to finding them new homes.”
