A car that used to belong to Her Majesty the Queen is up for auction in Surrey. The Daimler saloon car was delivered to Buckingham Palace in 2001. The Queen used the vehicle to travel between Windsor Castle and Buckingham Palace, as well as when attending her other engagements.

The car was transferred to The Jaguar Daimler Heritage Trust by the Royal household in 2004, and has a mileage of 15,252. The guide price at Brooklands auctioneers is £25,000 - £30,000.

The car was last seen in public at the Cartier Royal Jubilee display at the Goodwood Festival of Speed in Sussex in 2012.

The description of the car in the guide listing ends: '... this represents a rare opportunity to purchase a unique, important and totally useable, one careful lady owner vehicle which would surely grace any collection.'
