A Land-Rover fit for a Queen to headline at Brooklands

| 9 Nov 2012

A Land-Rover commissioned for the Queen – though it is unclear whether she used it – is coming up for sale with Historics at Brooklands on 24 November.

The company is selling the vehicle on behalf of the Ministry of Defence and it carries an estimate of £15-18,000.

The 1978 Land-Rover Royal Review State V Series III was modified a year later, including a traffic light system allowing the Queen to signal the driver to stop, slow or start.

With fewer than 2000 miles from new, it also has double rear doors and a rear retractable step that remain in place and in full working order.

Other lots that caught our eye include a 1954 Austin-Healey 100/4 BN1 with a £20-28,000 estimate (above), and an Indian state carriage from the Maharaja of Mysore (below, £70-100,000).

There is also a superb quality Bugatti T35 recreation using entirely correct parts which is expected to make £170-200,000.

A 1978 Jaguar XJC 4.2 that was immaculately converted by Lynx (£14-18,000) and a wonderful 1961 Standard Vanguard Vignale Estate (£4250-7500) also appeal.
