ROYAL / STATE CARS WITH NO NUMBER PLATES


A fleet of State Cars consisting of Bentleys, Rolls Royces and Daimler Limousines is provided for use by the Queen and other members of the Royal family as well as for use by visiting dignitaries.

These cars are provided for use on official engagements and state visits and are unique in the fact that they are not required to display any registration number on the front or rear of the vehicle. (Making them more than important enough to appear in this Number Plate site!). Although the Daimler Limo's and the monarch's personal vehicles and those belonging to other members of the Royal Family do display registration numbers.

The state vehicles are usually used throughout the UK for visits by the Queen.

The Queen will quite often fly to her destination to be met by the Royal Cars on arrival, then they are used for the 'official visit' part of the journey. The vehicles are also flown around the world and used when the Queen is travelling abroad.

The State cars are all instantly recognisable in their Royal Claret Livery.

The Queen has her own mascot for use on the state cars. This is a mascot of St. George slaying the dragon. Although this mascot is not used in Scotland.
In Scotland, the Queen uses a Lion mascot.

The mascot of Britannia and the British Lion atop the globe was made for the Daimler of King George V. George VI used it, then Queen Elizabeth the Queen Mother, and it now appears on the Prince Of Wales' cars when he uses a Rolls-Royce.

NYE582
Number Plate: NYE582
Registration Number: NYE582
Details/Information: Classic Car
Vehicle(s): Queen Mary's 1935 Daimler 4095cc Limousine

The car was used by Queen Mary from 1935 to 1953.

It was originally fitted with a 6.5 litre V12 engine, but this replaced by a smaller 4.0 litre 6 cylinder engine at the outbreak of World War II to save petrol during the war years.

After leaving Royal Service, it was taken to Long Beach, California where it was displayed on the, aptly named, ‘Queen Mary’ liner.

Exposure to the sun and salty air took its toll on the fabric of the car. In 1983, when the car was returned to the UK, it was in a sorry state.

The car was purchased by Coventry Motor Museum in 1984, and was restored to its present condition with the help of local companies.
