Everyone is aware that Queen Elizabeth II passed away recently. The Queen died at the age of 96 and she was on the throne for 70 years. The late Queen was Britain’s longest servinf monarch. The Royal family especially Queen Elizabeth II has been a person who was able to witness the changes or updates in the world of automobiles. The Queen had a variety of cars and coaches in her garage and here we have a video that shows some of the cars that were owned by her.
The video has been shared by The Royal Family YouTube channel. The video shows some luxury cars and coaches that Queen Elizabeth and the Royal had used.
Over the years, the Queen had owned and driven almost every generation of Range Rover SUV. It is one of the most common vehicle used by the Queen’s trusted aides. She has been spotted driving a Range Rover several times. It is said that the Queen had owned over 30 Range Rover and Land Rover SUVs over the years, including the Land Rover Series I. Other than the regular Range Rover SUV, the queen also owned a 2015 custom built Range Rover LWB. What made this Range Rover special was the roof. It came with a removable top, which allowed her stand up fully and see people during public engagements.
Bentley State Limousine
Queen Elizabeth II was often spotted in a wine red coloured Bentley limousine which was exclusively built by the British carmaker for the Royal family. This was built in 2002 by the manufacturer on Queen’s golden jubilee. 2 units of the limousine were manufactured and both are owned by the queen. As expected, this limousine is fully armoured and comes with blast proof cabin, kevlar run flat tyres and many more safety features. It is one of the most expensive state car in the world.
Jaguar X-Type Sportwagon V6 Sovereign
By now, you would have already realised that the Queen preferred cars made by British carmakers. She also owned a Jaguar X-Type Sportwagon which was the first station wagon from the manufacturer. She used to drive this car to and from the church. Other than the station wagon, she also owned a Jaguar Diamler V8 Super LWB. The car was returned to Jaguar Daimler Heritage Trust to whom the car is still registered today.
Rolls Royce Phantom IV
Royal garage cannot be called complete without a Rolls Royce in it. Only 20 units of Rolls Royce Phantom IV were manufactured. This was built only for buyers whom Rolls Royce considered worthy of the car. The Queen had two of them.
Just like luxury cars and SUVs, the Queen also had several state coaches in her garage. One of them is the Gold state coach which was commissioned in 1760. It was last used in 2002 for the golden jubilee. She also has the Diamond jubilee state coach which is one of the newest and was first used in 2014. It is also called a museum on wheels.
