The queen's quick limousine must at auction

the Audi A8, Bentley Mulsanne, and Maserati Quattroporte.

the Royal family members are today known to run in the grand and once in a while too (a little too) fast cars, but none of them come close to queen Ingrid when it comes to selecting cars with motorsport-trophies on the shelf.

Back in 1956 ordered she a Jaguar Mark VII, who, despite going appearance was a hot-headed karl for his time. Under the hood was a six cylinder line engine with muscles enough to hit 100 miles an hour, and for the same reason, was the car an extremely successful race car in the middle of the 1950s.

Queen ingrid's copy is from the same year, as a Mark VII won the Monte Carlo Rally, and the Crown-the car in this week under the hammer in Essen, Germany. It happens in connection with the great Techno Classica exhibition for classic cars.

Both the RM sotheby's and the Coys auction houses will hold bilauktion at the fair, and Her Majesty's Jaguar is a part of the long and savlfremkaldende's inventory of the latter.

the Information about the car are scarce, but according to the auction house, there will follow a certificate in the deal, which confirms the car's royal history.

Since the time in Denmark is it has been refinished in a color combination of silver and blue, and Coys estimates the car will bring between 260.000 and 300.000 kroner.

Several of queen ingrid's cars drove off in his time with Crown 411-license plate, but it is unclear whether this model has worn the same number. This is due not least that it is not the only Jaguar Mark VII, which queen has owned.

In 2016, was another Mark VII with royal blue paintwork and red interior sold at the auction house Lauritz. It was, according to the salgsopslaget from 1954, Her Majesty's 'first Jaguar'. Judging from the old pictures, which the Danish auction house has attached, bar this car Crown 411.

despite the car's history and that there was talk about the more powerful 'M'variant of the Mark VII, was the hammer price in 2016 at 205.000 dkk despite an assessment of 250,000 crowns.

Queen ingrid's a little newer and bi-colour Crown-car must be under the hammer 13. april.
