High price for a Royal

Classic Car Weekly (UK) - - This week - www.sil­ver­stoneauc­tions.com ❚

An Audi 80 Cabri­o­let once owned by Diana Princess of Wales sold for £48,000 in Sil­ver­stone Auc­tions’ sale.

The 1994 car is a five-cylin­der au­to­matic 2.3-litre cabri­o­let and was pre­sented to her by Dover­court Audi of St Johns Wood. De­spite not reach­ing its lower es­ti­mate of £50,000, it was still deemed to be a lot of money by en­thu­si­asts. Mark Stokes of the Audi 80 Cab/Coupé En­thu­si­asts Club says: ‘It’s the high­est price I’ve seen for one. A typ­i­cal car in that con­di­tion would fetch £3500- £4k. Prices may rise as a re­sult.’
