£58,000 for a convertible Audi – once driven by Princess Diana | London

A dark green convertible Audi used by Diana, Princess of Wales, has sold for £58,000 at auction.

The A4 Cabriolet 2.3E, which was loaned to Diana for personal use as a family car in 1994, fetched less than its estimate of £60,000 to £80,000.

Diana used the car to ferry Princes William and Harry around during the summer months that year.

Luke MacDonald, a director at Cheffins auction house in Cambridge, said the car was provided to the Princess by Dovercourt Audi, the main dealership in London.

They in effect loan it to the royals because it promotes their motor cars, which is fantastic.

She owned this, or drove it, at a time soon after she was divorced so she was photographed in it an awful lot at the time.
There was a huge paparazzi focus on her at that point and so we do see this particular motor car of hers, because she drove several over the time, being one of the ones that’s most iconic.
