The Queens vintage car has sold for 80,000 and it has custom seats designed for her corgis


A VINTAGE car previously owned by The Queen has been sold for a staggering 80,000 at auction.

The Daimler Double Six saloon had a rear seat specifically designed so her pet corgis can sit in comfort.

The Daimler saloon car was sold for a staggering 80,000

The luxury motor was delivered to Buckingham Palace in 1984 for the personal use of the monarch.

But before the keys were handed over, the green vehicle was a given a 3,000-mile road test by engineers to ensure it was perfect upon delivery.

The twin rear seats and middle arm rest were also removed and replaced with a full-length seat cushion so her corgi dogs could stretch out in comfort.

It even had a blue convoy light installed in the front of the rear-view mirror so bodyguards could easily identify the car in the event of a security threat.

The vintage vehicle was kept by Her Majesty for three years, but remained in the royal household for use by other family members and the security team.

It was then returned to Daimler in 1990 with just 29,000 miles on the clock.

Paul Darvill, a car specialist at RM Sotheby’s, said: “This Daimler is quite literally fit for a queen, having known to be regularly driven by Her Majesty herself when the car was new in the 1980s.

“Owing to its royal ownership history, the Double Six comes with all the benefits you would expect from a car that has been prepared to the highest degree.

The car was used by Her Majesty for three years

The Queen used the car for local and low-profile engagements

The car was brought new to Buckingham Palace in October 1984 for the Queen to use

“To this day, the car remains in perfect condition, having been immaculately maintained by Jaguar at the factory after its royal tenure, up to when it came into the hands of the consignor in 2010 and carefully curated thereafter.”

It’s not the first time a royal motor has attracted plenty of interest.

The Queen’s old Bentley which still directs the driver to Windsor Castle when they tap the home icon was put up for sale in 2017 for 180,000.
