London: A green Daimler owned and driven by Queen Elizabeth II has been sold at auction for 40,500 pounds ($62,755.)






Auction house Historics said the queen used the vehicle from 2001 to 2004 to travel around Windsor Castle and to go to and from Buckingham Palace. It says the monarch at times drove the car herself, and sometimes was driven in it.

The auction house says the car comes with several modifications, including an adapted arm rest with a sliding space designed to hold the queen's handbag. It added that the interior features lambs' wool rugs and other extra fittings.

The car was sold to an unnamed buyer in Surrey, near London, on Saturday.
