Bentley State Limousine will be shown at the Coronation Festival in Buckingham Palace Gardens

If you are in London area in the next couple of days (11-14 July) we suggest you head over to the Coronation Festival in Buckinghman Palace Gardens where you will be able to enjoy the rare opportunity to see Her Majesty The Queen’s State Limousine.

This unique one-off Bentley, presented to The Queen in 2002 to mark the 50th anniversary of her accession to the throne, will be the centrepiece of a collection of Bentleys on display in Buckingham Palace Gardens throughout the celebrations.

“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, designers and engineers together with different partners started work on ‘Project Diamond’ in 2000 with the clear objective of creating a truly elegant car suitable for every type of Royal occasion.

The State Limousine features a’panoramic glasshouse’ and it is far higher than any other car. The rear seat position was determined using a model of the same height as The Queen and the doors are hinged at the rear and open through 90 degrees to enable Her Majesty to almost walk out of the car.

Visitors will also get to see how Bentley’s craftsmen and designers display of some of the skills that provide every car that leaves the Crewe factory with a hand-built, bespoke feel.
