High price for a Royal
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.’
