2002 Bentley State Limousine

Submitted by on December 7, 2013 – 12:47 amNo Comment

2002 Bentley State LimousineThe Bentley State Limousine is a car created by Bentley for Elizabeth II of the United Kingdom on the occasion of her golden jubilee in 2002.

The vehicle’s twin-turbocharged, 6.75-liter V-8 has been modified from Bentley’s Arnage R version to produce 400 hp and 616 ft·lbf of torque. Maximum speed is 130 mph.

The royal State Limousine is three feet longer than a standard Bentley Arnage, 10 inches taller, and six inches wider. It is equipped with broad suicide doors, which are hinged at the rear and open almost 90 degrees.

The car has been given an armor-plated cladding, a mine-resistant floor, bazooka-proof glass, and a cabin that can be sealed against a gas attack. These security and safety measures hike the car’s weight to almost 4000 kg, and it rides on run-flat tires.

Only two of these cars were ever built to a bespoke design, both for the Queen, making it even rarer than the legendary Rolls-Royce Phantom IV, of which only 18 were built, exclusively for royalty and heads of state.
