It’s Prince Rainier’s Stiletto!
A Sunbeam Stiletto with royal connections is being offered for sale by a German Rootes specialist – for £12,000.
The 1971 car was last registered to Prince Rainier of Monaco and the first owner was his sister, Princess Marie Antoinette.
The left-hand drive Hillman Imp derivative was acquired 10 years ago by Thomas Gottshalk of therootesgarage.com.
‘I normally specialise in Sunbeam Alpines and Tigers but this is a lovely rare car. I couldn’t resist it,’ says Thomas. ‘It is 100% untouched – it even has some dings and scratches!’
The car is at Kevelaer, close to the Dutch border near Dusseldorf. ❚ www.rootesgarage.com
