A luxurious automobile with royal provenance is going under the hammer at RM Auctions' Sports & Classics of Monterey sale on August 13.
And they don't come much more royal than this: a 1984 Daimler Double Six Long-Wheelbase Saloon, once the personal car of HRH Queen Elizabeth II herself.
The Daimler was delivered new to Buckingham Palace for Her Majesty's personal use in October 1984.
Elizabeth used this Daimler as her own personal car, driving around her vast Windsor Estate as well as in and out of London to visit friends and family.
It is notably equipped with several special and unique modifications. What's more, this is the first and only prepared personal car of Queen Elizabeth II to be auctioned publicly in the US.
The monarch is known to be a keen motorist - she served in the transport corps of the British Army during the Second World War, driving ambulances and even changing wheels on the vehicles herself.
Aside from Elizabeth herself, many other royal family members and security staff travelled with her in this car.
Since its royal service, the Daimler has been maintained by the Jaguar Heritage Museum and has therefore always been in Jaguar ownership.
The regal saloon will sell at RM with its complete documentation and history (including photographs of the Queen with the car) and remains in outstanding condition, with only 41,000 original miles.
