The current rate for the sedan – 26 thousand dollars

On the Bring a Trailer website, there was an advertisement for the sale of a 1987 Rolls-Royce Silver Spur armored vehicle, which Princess Diana traveled to during the US visit. The car did not get into an accident, which is confirmed by the data of Carfax, and its mileage is about 98 thousand kilometers.

The description indicates that the car was ordered by the British Foreign Office for an embassy in Washington. Booking a Rolls-Royce Silver Spur was done by the body studio MacNeillie & Son: the sedan’s body was reinforced with steel and Kevlar plates, and the glass was replaced with polycarbonate. During her visit to the United States in 1990, Princess Diana moved there.

The Silver Spur is equipped with a standard 6.75-liter V8 engine, delivering 264 horsepower and 380 Nm of torque. Equipped with a three-band “automatic” sedan could accelerate to 60 miles per hour (97 kilometers per hour) in 12.6 seconds. The maximum speed of the Silver Spur was 174 kilometers per hour.

This copy of the model is painted in a dark green color Balmoral Green Metallic, which is combined with a beige interior. In 2008, the car replaced the air conditioning compressor. Rolls-Royce is equipped with a two-way intercom system, a panoramic roof, two Motorola phones, wooden pull-out tables, and a suspension that maintains a constant ground clearance.

Last year, Avito tried to sell 1915 Rolls-Royce 40/50 HP, which allegedly belonged to Nicholas II. Later it turned out that this is a fiction: one of the owners of the car came up with a story about the royal car.
