A Bentley Mulsanne that was delivered new to Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II in 2012 is being offered for sale for £199,850 – approximately £70,000 more than a similar car without a royal pedigree.

Used by the monarch until being retired from the royal fleet in 2014, the 6.75-litre Mulsanne was originally equipped with police lighting, bulletproof glass and armoured plates. These were subsequently removed by Bentley Motors along with Her Majesty’s coat of arms.

 

Of the Mulsanne, dealer Simon Gregg of Bramley Motor Cars told the Mail Online:

 

“This was a real find for two reasons – firstly, cars used by the Queen rarely come to the market, and also I am a huge fan of her”.

 

“This car was used to transport her on numerous occasions throughout her Jubilee year, including to the Cabinet meeting at Downing Street and on the day of her Jubilee celebrations in London”.

The interior is unsurprisingly in immaculate condition given the low mileage the Mulsanne has covered

 

The Barnato Green with Twine Main Hide eight-speed automatic vehicle has just 5,826 miles on the clock and is currently located in Bramley, Surrey.

    1. Lovely workmanship but there’s not much difference between this car and a gold plated version when it comes to owners flaunting their wealth. Ok if wealth is legitimately acquired, of course, and not at the expense of others.

    2. One point to consider, although they won’t admit it but the engine and transmission will have been considerably upgraded to counteract the extra weight of armour. They may have removed the defence systems (more’s the pity) but they certainly will not have wasted money downgrading the engine to standard spec so this will be one really quick Mulsanne and in a nice colour too!

    3. I would have thought this motor would have fetched a much higher price with the “defence systems” intact. (An oligarch would have snapped it up). I can understand though why some security advisers would have recommended their removal.

    4. They actually “recycle” the armour into other vehicles. Glenmore is correct in guessing it is not left there for security reasons. If a terrorist group got access to an ex Royal or VIP armoured vehicle intact then they could work out the weak areas of the defence systems and come up with a plan to overcome them. Sometimes privately owned armoured vehicles come on the market and generally at really knock down prices. For instance, Merc G wagons are popular armoured conversions.
