Diana’s Drive

Up-armoured Rolls-Royce used by the late Diana, Princess of Wales to be auctioned in Auburn, Indiana

 

A 1987 Rolls-Royce Silver Spur I commissioned by the British Foreign Office as part of the British Embassy vehicle pool in Washington D.C. that was used by Diana, Princess of Wales on two occasions is to be sold with an estimate of £35,000 to £42,000 ($45,000 to $55,000, €38,000 to €47,000 or درهم165,000 to درهم202,000).

 

Just as questions about the late royal’s safety in the Mercedes-Benz in which she made her tragic final journey in Paris in 1997 are again raised, the up-armoured car to be offered is to be sold by Auctions America at their 31st August to 3rd September sale in Auburn, Indiana.

 

The Balmoral Green with tan hide vehicle features laminated polycarbonate in place of glass windows, Kevlar and steel plate in the body, two Motorola mobile telephones and an exterior telecom (as the windows do not roll down). It has 60,300 miles on the clock and also has air conditioning and a working sunroof.

 

Used first by the then Princess of Wales on 4th October 1990, the car took her first to a Royal Gala to benefit the London City Ballet at the Department of Commerce in Washington, D.C. and then also to a home for HIV positive children, TERRIFIC, Inc.’s Grandma’s House®, in what was termed an “historic visit.”

  1. DIANA’S ROLLS ROYCE
    IF THIS ROLLS HAS BEEN SERVICED EVERY YEAR BY ROLLS DEALER. IT IS GOOD.
    IF IT HAS NOT BEEN KEPT SERVICED BY ROLLS YEARLY. IT IS NOT WORTH A PLUGGED NICKLE. NOTHING BUT SPEND TEN OR FIFTEEN THOUSAND DOLLARS TO PUT IT BACK TO A RELIABLE CAR. JUST FOOD FOR THOUGHT.

  2. Stuart & Alain, That’s only the last few digits, the ones that list the sequence number. The important parts that determine if the car can be imported to specific areas like North America and Europe are missing here. For example, digits in positions 6,7 and 8 can help determine where the car was intended for the vehicle sale when new. You can decipher a Rolls-Royce 17 digit number here: https://www.rrsilverspirit.com/chnrs2/index.htm
