This unique Bentley, Her Majesty The Queen’s State Limousine, was presented to The Queen in 2002 to mark the 50th anniversary of her accession to the throne. It will be the centrepiece of a collection of Bentleys on display in Buckingham Palace Gardens throughout the celebrations, including the flagship Bentley Mulsanne.
“Whilst the State Limousine is known to millions of people across the world, the Coronation Festival will offer a superb opportunity for visitors to take their time to walk around the car and get closer than usually possible. Her Majesty and The Royal Household have kindly made the car available for the occasion,” comments Richard Charlesworth, Bentley’s Director of Royal and VIP Relations.
'Bentley’s craftsmen and designers will also be in attendance at the Coronation Festival, offering live displays of some of the skills that provide every car that leaves the Crewe factory with a hand-built, bespoke feel. The ‘open air workshop’ will show guests the skill and craftsmanship needed to create Bentley’s luxury cars.
