A 90s gem up for auction!

The regally styled car could fetch up to $19,000 at Classic Car Auctions in June.

You may not be able to buy one of the royal family’s cars, but you can treat yourself to the one used by their fictional counterparts.

A 1995 Bentley Brooklands appeared in the Netflix series “The Crown” will be auctioned by Classic Car Auctions in the United Kingdom this summer. The four-door saloon, which will go under the hammer at the auction house’s sale at Tatton Park, Cheshire, on June 1, starred in the fifth and sixth seasons of the critically acclaimed TV series. Prince Charles (Dominic West) and Princess Diana (Elizabeth Debicki) can both be seen in this vehicle.

A realistic depiction of royal life

Written and created by Peter Morgan, “The Crown” has been praised for its realistic portrayal of the Windsors and royal life in general. Charles and Diana actually drove Bentleys in the ’90s. The couple famously took a Bentley State Limousine to Prague in May 1991. Additionally, Charles still owns two Bentleys in his $8 million collection. None, however, is linked to a successful television series.

An iconic model from the 90s

There Brooklands was launched by Bentley in 1992 to replace the Mulsanne and the Bentley Eight. The model was distinguished by a stylish, angular body, a classic cascading grille, dual headlights and a descending trunk lid. Under the hood was a 6.75-liter Rolls-Royce V8. The Brooklands was only produced for six years, until it was replaced by the Arnage in 1998. The British brand then introduced the Brooklands Coupe in 2007, which was a finalist for Robb Report’s Car of the Year in 2009 .

A carefully maintained example

This particular example is Peacock Blue in color and has been meticulously maintained, according to the auction house. The lambswool rugs, for example, are in almost new condition. The current owner acquired this vehicle from the 90s about three years ago from a renowned specialist in London. It shows 69,100 miles on the odometer, but has been well maintained by its owner and Rolls-Royce specialists. The car will also be sold with the license plate (G8 AOX) displayed on the screen.

A golden deal

Perhaps the best aspect is that the Brooklands is expected to fetch between $15,300 and $19,000 (£12,000 to £15,000). This is a real bargain given the sums achieved by other items from “The Crown”. A sale of more than 450 props and costumes brought in around $2.15 million (£1.7 million) at Bonhams in February, with Lady Di’s Jaguar alone topping $89,000 (£70,000). sterling). So consider this $19,000 a steal. Summary
