Automotive opinions aside, the Jaguar was a perfect car for the queen. She was already in her 80s when it was purchased, and the power leather seats and standard all-wheel drive likely made it a comfortable ride whenever she was behind the wheel. The Jaguar X-Type estate is quiet, composed, stately, and refined. It’s the polar opposite of ostentatious, perfect for a queen. Even though the queen ultimately preferred the offerings of the Land Rover brand, this specific Jaguar wagon will always be remembered as one of Her Majesty’s personal favorites.
According to the auction listing, the Jaguar shows over 72,000 miles on the odometer, most of which are likely from the second owner. The Jag also comes with all the pertinent paperwork proving that it was in fact driven by Her Majesty during its time of service to the royal. There is no estimate for the auction as of yet, but a proven connection to the queen likely won’t make it cheap. The auction itself takes place at the Mercedes-Benz World auction on November 26, 2022.
