The Queens Car on display at Goodwood

A spectacular gathering of the Queens personal vehicles will be on display at Goodwood this year

A spectacular gathering of the Queens personal vehicles will be on display at Goodwood this year. Vehicles are being sourced from not only the Queens’s personal collections at Sandringham and the Royal Mews but from overseas governments and private collections.

The vehicles will be divided into six classes; Limousines, official Overseas State Visit travel, Working Cars, Personal Family Cars, Aviation, Rail and Horse-drawn vehicles, and Royal Household Toy Cars.

Also included in the display are the Queen's 1961 Rolls-Royce Phantom V and 1929 Daimler Double Six 30hp Brougham, as well as a Chapron-bodied Citroën SM Decapotable used by the Queen during a State visit to France in 1972 and a 1961 Vauxhall Cresta Friary Estate used to transport the Queen's corgi dogs.

A 1920s Royal Midland carriage from The Royal Train and a 1950s De Havilland Chipmunk aircraft will also be on display, and like everything else will be judged by a panel of experts who have the job of choosing which vehicle best demonstrates the art of automotive design.
