Queen Elizabeth's Rolls-Royce is for sale for nearly $3 million
Want a car fit for a Queen?
Anyone with up to $2.7 million will have the chance to grab the historic car, which transported the Queen and husband Prince Philip around during official visits and tours. With its large windows creating an airy space and plenty of viewing opportunities for well-wishers to see the couple, the Rolls-Royce Phantom IV State Landaulette was used by the royals for 40 years — including on many overseas tours.
It is one of the same models that Meghan, Duchess of Sussex, 36, was driven to Windsor Castle alongside her mother, Doria Ragland, on her wedding day.
Auctioneers Bonhams, who are holding the sale on September 8 at Goodwood, Chichester, in southern England, also have a 1960 Rolls-Royce Phantom V ‘High Roof’ State Limousine. It was used also by the Queen and Philip for State occasions and is currently on view on the Royal Yacht Britannia. Experts believe it could fetch more than $1.4 million.

Also in the sale is a 1985 Rolls-Royce ‘Centenary’ Silver Spur Saloon, which was the 100,000th Rolls-Royce ever built. It was occasionally used by Harry’s late mother, Princess Diana. (That will cost a buyer an estimated $104,000- 131,000.)
Malcolm Barber, co-chairman of Bonhams, said in a statement, “This is a remarkable collection of cars, and one that beautifully illustrates the history of one of the most celebrated and prestigious companies in the world.
“Rolls-Royce motor cars have been present at countless historic events in recent British history, and the Heritage Fleet encapsulates the most significant models produced by the marque.”
