Iconic Auctioneers will be presenting a unique offering next month – a 2004 model year Range Rover that once belonged to the late Queen Elizabeth II. Crafted by Land Rover Special Vehicle Operations, this third-generation luxury 4×4, finished in Epsom Green with a Sand Hide interior, bears all the distinct preferences requested by her majesty, showcasing both regality and practicality. Scheduled for auction on November 11 in Birmingham, England, this stately SUV carries a rich history, having served the queen with distinction and accumulating over 100,000 miles on the odometer.
Beyond its royal lineage, this bespoke Range Rover features notable enhancements, including a modified grille with covert lights, customized front and rear seat covers, a dedicated dog guard, cargo mat, side steps, and mudflaps. In line with the queen’s personalized touches found in her other vehicles, it boasts dual rear window switches and rear grab handles, facilitating her entry and exit from the vehicle.
Technical details are not extensively provided in the auction listing, it is probable that the 2004 Range Rover is equipped with one of the two BMW-sourced powertrains available during that period. Options include a 4.0-liter V-8 generating 282 hp and 325 ft lbs of torque, or a 3.0-liter inline-six turbodiesel producing 175 hp and 288 ft lbs of torque. The vehicle’s mileage suggests that it has been actively used, with over 100,000 miles recorded on the odometer. Iconic Auctioneers is ready to address any concerns about the provenance of the vehicle and offers video proof of the queen driving it upon request.
Anticipating strong interest from enthusiasts and collectors alike, Iconic Auctioneers estimates a bidding range of £50,000 to £60,000 (approximately $61,000 to $73,000) for this elegant bruiser. With its unique royal connection and bespoke features, this Range Rover is poised to captivate Crown enthusiasts seeking a piece of regal history.
