It’s Prince Rainier’s Stiletto!

Classic Car Weekly (UK) - - This Week -

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 the­rootes­

‘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.rootes­
