This Bentley State Limousine is one of two at the Royal Mews. The first was presented to Her Majesty The Queen to mark her Golden Jubilee in 2002. The one-off design, conceived by a Bentley-led consortium of British motor industry manufacturers and suppliers, was created with input from The Queen, The Duke of Edinburgh and Her Majesty's Head Chauffeur.

Although they have a powerful engine (6.75 litre V8 with twin turbos), on processional occasions the Bentleys travel at between 3-9 miles per hour. The Bentleys used to have the ability to run on LPG, but now the 6.75 litre engines have been converted to run on biofuel. The rear doors are hinged at the back and are designed to allow The Queen to stand up straight before stepping out.
