Bentley state limousine — bentley state limousine

Description

The vehicle’s twin-turbocharged, 6.75-litre V8 engine has been modified from Bentley’s Arnage R version to produce 400 hp (298 kW; 406 PS) and 616 lb⋅ft (835 N⋅m) of torque. Its maximum speed is 130 mph (209 km/h).[citation needed]

Bentley State Limousine.

The State Limousine is 83.0 cm (2.723 ft) longer than a standard Bentley Arnage, 25.5 cm (10.0 in) taller, and 6.8 cm (2.7 in) wider. It is equipped with broad coach doors that open to the rear almost 90 degrees. Opaque panels over the backlight of the car can be installed for either added privacy or removed for added visibility of its passengers. For protection of its occupants, the bodywork and glass are armoured, the cabin can be sealed air-tight in case of gas attack and is also blast-resistant, and the tyres are kevlar-reinforced.

Interior

The State Limousine is equipped with flashing blue lights. Scottish lion ornament is displayed as is Her Majesty’s Royal Standard and shield for Scotland (royal visit to Perth, 2012)

The Bentley is used mostly on official engagements, and is always escorted by a selection of marked and unmarked Royal Protection Squad vehicles and local police vehicles and motorcycle outriders. The Queen also uses it to travel to church when at Balmoral and Sandringham House. When abroad, the Queen may use other state cars or a vehicle provided by her hosts.

Like all British state cars, the Bentley has a mount on its roof for an illuminated coat-of-arms and a pennant, which can be inserted from inside the vehicle. These usually feature the royal coat of arms and the Royal Standard respectively, although other symbols can be used for occasions such as a state visit. When the Queen is on board, the Bentley «Flying B» bonnet ornament is either replaced by the Queen’s personal mascot of Saint George slaying the dragon or a single standing Lion, which is used in Scotland. The limousines are equipped with flashing blue lights, two in the grille and two on the front bumper. The State Limousines do not have number plates. The Bentley is claret and black like all the British state limousines.

In January 2009, it was announced that both Bentley State Limousines would be converted to run on biofuel.

The vehicle was showcased at the 2013 Coronation Festival in Buckingham Palace Gardens.

The two limousines are said to be valued at 10 million GBP each.

Bentley State Limousine

Bentley State Limousine
Manufacturer Bentley Motors Ltd as a marque of the Volkswagen Group
Production 2002
2 produced
Engine twin-turbocharged 6.75-litre Rolls-Royce V8
Wheelbase 3,844 mm (151 in)
Length 6,220 mm (245 in)
Width 2,000 mm (79 in)
Height 1,770 mm (70 in)

The Bentley State Limousine is an official state car created by Bentley for Queen Elizabeth II on the occasion of her Golden Jubilee in 2002.

The vehicle’s twin-turbocharged, 6.75-litre V8 engine has been modified from Bentley’s Arnage R version to produce 400 hp (300 kW) and 616 lb·ft (835 N·m) of torque. Its maximum speed is 130 mph (210 km/h).

 
Hield Brothers lambswool sateen cloth seen in the interior of the State Limousine.

The State Limousine is 83.0 cm (2.723 ft) longer than a standard Bentley Arnage, 25.5 cm (10.0 in) taller, and 6.8 cm (2.7 in) wider. It is equipped with broad coach doors that open to the rear almost 90 degrees. Opaque panels over the backlight of the car can be installed for either added privacy or removed for added visibility of its passengers. For protection of its occupants, the bodywork and glass are armoured, the cabin can be sealed air-tight in case of gas attack and is also blast-resistant, and the tyres are kevlar-reinforced.

British textile manufacturer Hield Brothers produced the lambswool sateen cloth used for the upholstery of the rear seats.

Only two of these vehicles were built, making it even rarer than the Rolls-Royce Phantom IV, of which just 18 were built for royalty and heads of state.

The Bentley is used only on official engagements, and is always escorted by a selection of marked and unmarked Royal Protection Squad vehicles and local police vehicles and motorcycle outriders. The Queen also uses it to travel to church when at Balmoral and Sandringham House. When abroad, the Queen may use other state cars or something provided by her hosts.

Like all British state cars, the Bentley has a mount on its roof for an illuminated crest and a pennant, which can be inserted from inside the vehicle. These both usually feature the Royal Standard, although other symbols can be used for occasions such as a state visit. When the Queen is on board, the Bentley «Flying B» hood ornament is replaced by Her Majesty’s personal mascot of St George slaying the dragon. The State Limousines do not have number plates. The Bentley is claret and black like all the Brittish state limousines, and also the queen’s helicopter.

In January 2009, it was announced that both Bentley State Limousines will be converted to run on biofuels.

The Bentley State Limousine is an official state car created by Bentley for Queen Elizabeth II on the occasion of her Golden Jubilee in 2002.

The vehicle’s twin-turbocharged, 6.75-litre V8 engine has been modified from Bentley’s Arnage R version to produce 400 hp (300 kW) and 616 lb·ft (835 N·m) of torque. Its maximum speed is 130 mph (210 km/h).

The State Limousine is 83.0 cm (2.723 ft) longer than a standard Bentley Arnage, 25.5 cm (10.0 in) taller, and 6.8 cm (2.7 in) wider. It is equipped with broad coach doors that open to the rear almost 90 degrees. Opaque panels over the backlight of the car can be installed for either added privacy or removed for added visibility of its passengers. For protection of its occupants, the bodywork and glass are armoured, the cabin can be sealed air-tight in case of gas attack and is also blast-resistant, and the tyres are kevlar-reinforced.

British textile manufacturer Hield Brothers produced the lambswool sateen cloth used for the upholstery of the rear seats.

Only two of these vehicles were built, making it even rarer than the Rolls-Royce Phantom IV, of which just 18 were built for royalty and heads of state.

The Bentley is used only on official engagements, and is always escorted by a selection of marked and unmarked Royal Protection Squad vehicles and local police vehicles and motorcycle outriders. The Queen also uses it to travel to church when at Balmoral and Sandringham House. When abroad, the Queen may use other state cars or something provided by her hosts.

Like all British state cars, the Bentley has a mount on its roof for an illuminated crest and a pennant, which can be inserted from inside the vehicle. These both usually feature the Royal Standard, although other symbols can be used for occasions such as a state visit. When the Queen is on board, the Bentley «Flying B» hood ornament is replaced by Her Majesty’s personal mascot of St George slaying the dragon. The State Limousines do not have number plates. The Bentley is claret and black like all the Brittish state limousines, and also the queen’s helicopter.

In January 2009, it was announced that both Bentley State Limousines will be converted to run on biofuels.

Description[edit]

The vehicle’s twin-turbocharged, 6.75-litre V8 engine has been modified from Bentley’s Arnage R version to produce 400 hp (298 kW; 406 PS) and 616 lb⋅ft (835 N⋅m) of torque. Its maximum speed is 130 mph (209 km/h).[citation needed]

Bentley State Limousine.

The State Limousine is 83.0 cm (2.723 ft) longer than a standard Bentley Arnage, 25.5 cm (10.0 in) taller, and 6.8 cm (2.7 in) wider. It is equipped with broad coach doors that open to the rear almost 90 degrees. Opaque panels over the backlight of the car can be installed for either added privacy or removed for added visibility of its passengers. For protection of its occupants, the bodywork and glass are armoured, the cabin can be sealed air-tight in case of gas attack and is also blast-resistant, and the tyres are kevlar-reinforced.

Interior

The State Limousine is equipped with flashing blue lights. Scottish lion ornament is displayed as is Her Majesty’s Royal Standard and shield for Scotland (royal visit to Perth, 2012)

The Bentley is used mostly on official engagements, and is always escorted by a selection of marked and unmarked Royal Protection Squad vehicles and local police vehicles and motorcycle outriders. The Queen also uses it to travel to church when at Balmoral and Sandringham House. When abroad, the Queen may use other state cars or a vehicle provided by her hosts.

Like all British state cars, the Bentley has a mount on its roof for an illuminated coat-of-arms and a pennant, which can be inserted from inside the vehicle. These usually feature the royal coat of arms and the Royal Standard respectively, although other symbols can be used for occasions such as a state visit. When the Queen is on board, the Bentley «Flying B» bonnet ornament is either replaced by the Queen’s personal mascot of Saint George slaying the dragon or a single standing Lion, which is used in Scotland. The limousines are equipped with flashing blue lights, two in the grille and two on the front bumper. The State Limousines do not have number plates. The Bentley is claret and black like all the British state limousines.

In January 2009, it was announced that both Bentley State Limousines would be converted to run on biofuel.

The vehicle was showcased at the 2013 Coronation Festival in Buckingham Palace Gardens.

The two limousines are said to be valued at 10 million GBP each.
