In August 1997, the late Princess of Wales tragically died in a car crash. She will have her former 1994 forest green Audi cabriolet 2.3 E auctioned off by COYS at their traditional Blenheim Palace sale in Oxfordshire on Saturday (29.06.13).

Diana was regularly seen behind the wheel of the vehicle as she drove her children Prince William and Prince Harry around London in 1994. It has only 21,000 miles on the odometer.

The royal car is in neat as a new pin condition and boasts light beige hide interior and metallic Gomera green paintwork, with only 21,000 miles on the clock.

It is expected be snapped up by a motor-enthusiast for anything between 20,000 pounds and 25,000 pounds.

Chris Routledge, Managing Director of COYS, said: “The Blenheim sale has attracted some very high profile cars and presents an extraordinary opportunity for collectors to own significant pieces of Royal history.”
Previous this month the robust price tag comes as no surprise since a tie once worn by the popular princess sold for nearly 4,000 pounds.

The Escada tie which is adorned in a gold elephant print pattern was worn by Diana in public upon numerous occasions.

Last year, 10 gowns worn by the late royal earned 862,000 pounds in a private auction, with one dress being sold for 240,000 pounds to a man who wanted to surprise his wife.
