A 2013 Bentley Mulsanne used to transport HM Queen Elizabeth II has sold in the UK just days after being advertised.
Despite being considerably more expensive than other comparable Mulsannes on the market, the vehicle sold very soon after being advertised – no doubt helped by its provenance.
An identical Mulsanne, also finished in Bernato Green with Twine Main Hide and Burr Walnut Veneer trim, resided at Her Majesty's Windsor residence, and sold in 2016 for £200,000 (AU$374,000 at the time).
The Mulsanne is powered by a 6.75-litre twin-turbocharged petrol V8 producing 377kW and 1020Nm – taking the 2711kg sedan to 100km/h from a standstill in 5.3 seconds.
As expected, the Queen's Bentley has been maintained to the highest standards, with an "impeccable service history" and approximately 3000km on the odometer.
At the Duke of Edinburgh's funeral last month, the HRH was transported in a Land Rover Defender 130 Gun Bus, which the prince helped to design.
