Classic Car Weekly (UK) - - This Week -

An Audi Cabri­o­let that was reg­u­larly driven by Diana, Princess of Wales, has sold at auc­tion for £32,000.

Diana drove the 1994 Audi Cabri­o­let – which just missed its lower es­ti­mate of £35,000 at Coys’ Blen­heim Palace sale on 15 July – af­ter Lon­don main dealer, Dover­court Audi of St Johns Wood, loaned it to her.

The Audi is still on its orig­i­nal reg­is­tra­tion num­ber and has been kept in stor­age for the last eight years. The ven­dor bought it in 2004 and used it ev­ery day, be­fore re­al­is­ing its im­por­tance and putting it into stor­age.

An­other 1994 Audi Cabri­o­let – this one a car that the princess ac­tu­ally owned – sold at last year’s Sil­ver­stone Auc­tions NEC Clas­sic Mo­tor Show sale for £54,000.
