Cars with celebrity provenance are often a hit with collectors, but it’s rare to see cars used by the world leaders up for grabs to the general public.

This 2016 Land Rover  Range Rover 4.4 SD V8 Autobiography LWB (try saying that five times fast) was specifically prepared by Jaguar Land Rover at their Gaydon facility, for Royal use. It is now on sale online at AutoTrader, via Bramley Motor Cars in the UK.

In 2016 Prince Phillip with the Queen in tow, drove this very Range Rover to meet former President Obama and the First Lady on a state visit to the UK.

Prince Phillip and the Queen met the Obamas as they stepped off Marine One, and drove them back to Windsor Castle.

The car features a 4.4lt V8 diesel motor mated to an eight-speed automatic transmission. This generation Land Rover Range Rover arrived in 2013, and brought with it an all-new aluminium monocoque construction, which has since spread throughout the Range Rover Sport and Discovery models.

The Range Rover gained certain bespoke touches by JLR specifically for Royal duty. These included "covert lighting" and police emergency lighting, as well as specially adapted fixed side steps and rear passenger grab handles to assist the Queen with entry and egress of the vehicle. These features (especially the emergency lights) have unfortunately been removed after its discharge from duty, and presents virtually as new with only 3,200 miles on the odometer.

The car is available online via AutoTrader, and is listed for £129,850 – which is AUD$225,879 at the current conversion.

That’s actually a touch cheaper than the AUD$256,000 MSRP on a current 2018 model in equivalent spec.

The same sellers, Bramley Motor Cars, similarly sold the Queens Bentley Mulsanne back in 2016. It was listed for £200,000, or AUD$348,115.

Prince Harry's Audi RS6 was also sold earlier this year, and Prince Andrew's Bentley is on offer right now.
