Land Rover Se­ries III Cer­e­mo­nial Ve­hi­cle

Classic Car Weekly (UK) - - Driven -

This ve­hi­cle is very much in the tra­di­tion of State IV, but with some very cun­ning mod­i­fi­ca­tions. The Land Rover was com­mis­sioned in 1978 and in the fol­low­ing year was given the ul­ti­mate in ‘back seat driver’ sys­tems. At the mer­est touch of a but­ton, Her Majesty could in­struct her driver to stop, start (very use­ful for mak­ing a get­away from dull or over­bear­ing VIP guests) or slow down via a dis­play of dash­board warn­ing lights. The Land Rover was sold at au­di­tion on 24 Novem­ber 2014. With only 1892 miles on the clock and a very care­ful pre­vi­ous owner, it made £28,380.
