A truly regal Range Rover is about to go up for grabs.
A 2004 model year example of the luxury 4×4 that belonged to none other than the late Queen Elizabeth II will be sold by Iconic Auctioneers next month. The stately SUV comes with all the special options requested by her majesty, along with plenty of mileage.

Land Rover Special Vehicle Operations built the queen’s SUV. It is a third-generation Range Rover finished in Epsom Green over a Sand Hide interior (a similar color combo to that of her back-up ride, a 2009 Jaguar X-Type Estate). It’s not a stock model, of course, and comes with several upgrades, including a modified grille with covert lights, front and rear seat covers, a dog guard, cargo matt, side steps, and mudflaps. It also comes with two modifications that were fixtures of the queen’s other vehicles—dual rear window switches and rear grab handles to make entering and exiting the vehicle easier.
The auction listing is short on technical details, but the 2004 Range Rover came with one of two BMW-sourced powertrains. The first was a 4.0-liter V-8 that produced 282 hp and 325 ft lbs of torque and the second a 3.0-liter inline-six turbodiesel that produced 175 hp and 288 ft lbs of torque. The queen seems to have gotten a fair bit of use out of whatever mill is under the hood. Iconic Auctioneers says the vehicle has over 100,000 miles on the odometer, though it’s unclear how many of those came with her at the wheel. The auction house also has video proof of the royal driving the vehicle that is available upon request should you have concerns about its provenance.
Iconic Auctioneers expects the elegant bruiser to go for between £50,000 and £60,000 (or roughly $61,000 to $73,000) when it goes up for bid on November 11 in Birmingham, England. We’re sure there’s at least one Crown lover out there who will consider that a bargain.
