Fancy an Armoured Rolls Royce Silver Spur with Royal Heritage?

A 1987 Rolls Royse Silver Spur is on sale at “Bring a Trailer” auctions in USA. It was ordered by the UK Foreign Office for use at its Embassy in Washington D.C., but its real claim to fame is that it was used by Princess Diana on her official visit to USA in 1990. She was photographed in it on numerous occasions including a visit to the Royal Gala Evening to benefit the London City Ballet and Grandma’s house, a home for HIV positive children, both in Washington D.C.
