Every Princess needs a chariot and Princess Diana had hers.You are reviewing the Chariot used by Princess Diana and Prince Charles for her introduction to North America as a Princess.Review the video posted on this listing to witness this Rolls Royce carrying Princess Diana and Prince Charles to the White House for introduction to Ronald and Nancy Reagan.This Rolls Royce is the most significant in Princess Diana's United States history.Bought new by the Embassy of the United Kingdom in 1979,it was not put into service until 1981.The reason for this is because the first 2 years were spent armoring the car against bullets,grenades,and small bombs.The bullet proof glass is also sealed shut to protect against gas attack.This transformation cost in excess of $200,000 and took the car from a 5000 lb car to 10,000 lbs.The car was the VIP in the fleet of the British Embassy until it was retired in 1988.It was this very car that carried the Royal couple during their US visit.
After the car was retired it was purchased by Farley Berman,founder of the Berman History Museum and owner of the worlds most extensive collection of historic weaponry.Farley considered this car the most valuable piece in his collection valuing it at $2 million dollars.
The car was purchased by an eclectic car collector in Nashville Tn and put in his collection.Due to the significance of the car he felt it appropriate to renew and sort any mechanical issues the car may have,he spent over $17000 with a local marque specialist.
This car would be appropriate addition to any personal collection or museum.Review the photos posted.The car will come with all books,records,video of White House visit as well as the Embassy log book. The video footage may be viewed here:
