2002 Bentley State Limousine

Bentley Motors chairman and chief executive Franz-Josef Paefgen presented the Bentley State Limousine to The Queen at Windsor Castle on 29th May 2002. Presented on behalf of a consortium of British based automotive manufacturing and service companies, the Bentley was a gift to The Queen in recognition of her Golden Jubilee year. The occasion marked an important milestone in the history of Bentley Motors, and signals the continuation of the Crewe tradition of supplying fine, bespoke and beautifully crafted cars for royal occasions.

Uniquely this car has been designed for State duties, it is also the first ceremonial Royal vehicle to have been developed using the latest computer aided design techniques and will be the first ever Bentley in the Royal fleet.

Naturally the nature of any security equipment fitted to the car is not for public consumption. says Bentley.
