Queen Elizabeth II’s Range Rover on sale

February 1, 2024

Queen Elizabeth II’s Land Rover Range Rover SDV8 Autobiography LWB is now available to buy if you have a cool quarter of a million pounds in the bank.

Queen Elizabeth II Range Rover

The car was commissioned by the Royal Household in March 2016 and has been spotted on numerous occasions chauffeuring the late Queen and Duke of Edinburgh to and from high-profile events.

The Royal Range Rover also played a starring role during Barack Obama’s state visit to the UK that same year, with photographs showing the former U.S. President and First Lady Michelle Obama being escorted into the back of the car.

Several modifications were made by the Land Rover Workshop in Gaydon to fit the Royal Household’s requirements, including side steps and a police siren. These have since been removed for homologation purposes, though a set of grab handles Her Majesty The Queen requested on many of her cars, along with a warning label for the police siren, are included in the sale as mementos of its time at the Royal Household.

This SDV8 Autobiography LWB is finished in metallic blue with a cream leather interior. Dignitaries in the rear benefit from extra legroom courtesy of the extended wheelbase, while the rear headrest screens, which were removed while in service, have been reinstated for the new owner.

Up front is a 4.4-litre, twin-turbocharged diesel V8 with 339hp and 519lb ft of torque, which is sent to all-four wheels through an eight-speed automatic gearbox. A 0 to 60mph dash takes just 6.5 seconds, and it’ll go on to a top speed of 135mph.

The car has been listed on PistonHeads.com by Bramley Motors and is offered with 18,000 miles on the clock; 2,586 of which were covered while under Royal ownership. Included in the sale are its original number plates – OU16 XVH – as seen on the car during Royal events.

The vehicle is on sale via PistonHeads.com for £224,850 and Matt Bird, Deputy Editor of PistonHeads, said: “There are few finer ways to travel than in the back of a long-wheelbase Range Rover. They really are unmatched for opulence and sense of occasion, especially when specified like this one with lovely light leather and dark wood. Even the wheels look ideal for sumptuous rolling refinement, and the lusty V8 diesel will be the perfect accompaniment for mile after effortless mile.

“This model is desirable enough already, but to know this was personal transport for the late Queen and Prince Phillip elevates this Range Rover onto another plane of specialness entirely. This would have been one of the final vehicles specified by Her Majesty; that it remains with some of those features intact is lovely to see. Knowing that this vehicle was used for the Obamas on a state visit only furthers the appeal. For those enamoured with the Royal family, it’s an unrepeatable (and wonderful) piece of history.”
