The Royal Palace has finally decided to sell the 1987 Rolls Royce Silver of which late Princess Diana official car.

The Silver Spur was ordered by the U.K. Foreign Office for exclusive use at its Embassy in Washington, D.C. While it is impressive on its own, the car’s real claim to fame is its association with the late Diana, Princess of Wales. Used by the princess on her official 1990 visit to the United States, the car was featured in numerous photographs including her appearance at the Royal Gala Evening to benefit the London City Ballet in Washington, D.C., and a visit to Grandma’s House, a Washington, D.C., home for HIV-positive children, on October 4 and 5 respectively. Still married to Prince Charles at the time, she appeared in her then official royal capacity as Her Royal Highness, the Princess of Wales.

A long-wheelbase variant of the Silver Spirit, this Silver Spur was armored by coachbuilder specialist MacNeillie & Son of Walsall, England, before being shipped to the United States. Reinforcements include carbon-steel and Kevlar plates, extra door and hinge reinforcement, and polycarbonate windows in place of the original glass units. (The tinting on the rear windows appears to be crumbling and will need to be removed in the future.) The car also rather curiously includes a sunroof, presumably to facilitate the brandishing of a Walther PPK by a member of Her Majesty’s Secret Service should disorder arise.

Currently showing 61,000 miles, the car was ordered with Motorola car phones—one in the front passenger-side left armrest and the other in the rear center armrest—cutting-edge stuff for 1987. One of the neatest features is the two-way intercom system with a handheld microphone located in the glovebox that can broadcast outside the vehicle via a speaker mounted to the underbody.

You can see it in action in the video below.

When you are rich, you command and get luxury items at the snap of a finger. You have a good life and this includes hi-tech cars and a lot more.

People who run the risk of getting shot at in public often turn to companies that offer bulletproof mobility solutions. One such brand is AddArmor, founded by Special Ops and other law-enforcement veterans who specialize “in turning vehicles of all kinds and prices into mobile safe-rooms”, as they put it.

This particular example is a $350,000 (127million naira) Cadillac Escalade equipped with the Executive Protection Package, which adds further customization within the cabin, focusing not just on security, but luxury features, too. After all, those rich (and important enough to have such enemies) individuals appreciate their comfort.

“The AddArmor Executive Protection Package Escalade really represents the pinnacle of what we offer in terms of executive protection and comfort,” said the company’s president, Jeff Engen Anderson. “This truck not only features the best in lightweight, modern armoring alongside a host of other hidden countermeasures but also presents it all in a luxurious package.

The vehicle uses special 2-inch (5 cm) thick ballistic glass capable of stopping high-powered rifle rounds, not to mention 9 mm and .44 Magnum rounds. Opt for the Full Protection Package and you’ll get a windshield with anti-fog/de-icing elements, embedded antennas for GPS and radio, and solar coatings.

In order to make sure that performance doesn’t take a hit, AddArmor used carbon-composite panels that are said to be 10 times stronger than ballistic steel and weigh 60 percent less, offering the Escalade 360-degree protection. Its engineers then raised the SUV’s roof by 4.5 inches (11 cm) to increase headroom, before adding an Alcantara suede headliner and LED lighting.

Also available is a 32-inch smart TV integrated into the retractable divider, a 360-degree camera system, onboard Wi-Fi, DirecTV, Apple TV, and HBO, Sony surround sound system and iPod/iPhone compatibility.

Equally impressive are all the countermeasures that can be deployed if the vehicle comes under attack. For starters, you have access to gun ports so that you can retaliate if somebody opens fire on you. Then there is the anti-jamming satellite communications system, active mine/explosion detection, 360-degree night vision camera and a global ‘911’ phone and data system monitored by a Global Special Operations Command Center (GSOC), where highly trained personnel will stay with you on the line until the threat has been mitigated.

This particular Escalade is also equipped with red/blue law-enforcement emergency lights, a siren and PA system, hidden lockboxes, run-flat tires, a heavy-duty suspension and larger brakes.
