The British royal family may be best known for more high-end machinery such as Land Rovers, Bentleys or even King Charles’ wine-powered Aston Martin. But not everything was quite so flashy, such as this 2009 Jaguar X-Type wagon, which was owned and driven by the late Queen Elizabeth II. And now it could be yours, since it’s heading for auction.
Land Rover may be the car manufacturer most closely associated with the royal family, especially the Queen’s late husband Prince Philip, but they’ve been known to mix things up from time to time (especially if the car in question was British made). This Jaguar station wagon was one such example. According to the auction house, this car was Queen Elizabeth’s backup when her beloved Land Rover Defender was unavailable.
Are you looking for a way to feel like a king or queen?
If that’s the case, then you might be interested in the 2009 Jaguar Type X Queen Elizabeth wagon. This luxurious and majestic car is sure to attract attention. It boasts a sleek design and top-notch features, making it the perfect choice for those who want to feel like royalty.
The car that Queen Elizabeth not only drove, but also drove, may soon be yours.
British auction house Historic Auctioneers will sell a 2009 Jaguar X-Type Estate once owned by the late monarch. The car may not be as exciting as some of today’s powerful trucks, but if you’re looking for a very special British car, it’s hard to beat.
This luxury vehicle is now available to the public.
This magnificent car, which is now accessible to the general public, is fit for a king or queen. Over a Barley leather lining, its exterior is finished in a striking layer of Emerald Fire.
Queen Elizabeth’s wagon hasn’t received a pre-sale estimate from Historic Auctioneers, but we predict it will fetch more money than the $4,500 that a less well-known X-Type Estate is presently worth. In fact, we wouldn’t be shocked if the vehicle sold for more than the $40,000 Jaguar requested for it in 2009.
The 2009 Jaguar X-Type Estate is the ideal vehicle to drive if you want to feel like a VIP.
If you’re looking for a majestic ride, check out the Jaguar X wagon.
With its majestic design and luxurious performance. The Jaguar X Type van is equipped with all the amenities you would expect from a high-end vehicle, including leather heated front seats, sunroof, navigation system, power windows and climate control. And, of course, it’s accompanied by Jaguar’s trademark growl, which is sure to grab attention when you’re on the road. If you’re looking for a car that makes you feel like royalty, the Jaguar X Type Estate is the perfect choice.
Under the hood of the station wagon is a 3.0-liter V-6 capable of producing up to 227 hp, according to Jalopnik. You may not want to participate in any drag racing, but there is some energy. The chopper is connected to an automatic transmission that sends power to all four wheels. The car has 72,544 miles on the odometer, but we assume that someone at the palace made sure it was in top condition. It also comes with a Jaguar Certificate of Trust.
Owning a piece of history has never been so accessible. A 2009 Queen Elizabeth Jaguar x Estate is up for sale.
However, if you exclude the royal link, the X-Type is a really average vehicle. Although it has several Jaguar-branded accents, like the exterior styling, the wood and leather inside, and the J-gate shifter, the Ford Mondeo served as its primary structural inspiration. That was considered beneath a luxury brand in America at the time, especially since it was built on a Ford. Later, Jaguar management even acknowledged that they made several serious errors with the X-Type, which were fixed in the rear-drive XE, which served as its spiritual successor.
The Jaguar X Type station wagon was a gift from Jaguar Land Rover to the Queen in 2009 and she has used it on numerous occasions. The car is currently being sold by auction house Coys with an estimated price of £20,000 to £30,000. This is a unique opportunity to become the owner of a piece of royal history.
