Presented on behalf of a consortium of British based automotive manufacturing and service companies, the Bentley was a gift to The Queen in recognition of her Golden Jubilee year. The occasion marked an important milestone in the history of Bentley Motors, and signals the continuation of the Crewe tradition of supplying fine, bespoke and beautifully crafted cars for royal occasions.

Work first began on the Bentley State Limousine in the spring of 2000 after the proposal to build a Bentley for The Queen, as part of the celebrations for the Golden Jubilee, was first presented to royal officials.

The new Bentley State Limousine was extensively used during The Queen's Golden Jubilee Tour. The first official journey was be on Tuesday, 4th June when the car transported The Queen and The Duke of Edinburgh from the National Service of Thanksgiving at St Paul's Cathedral, London.

The Bentley State Limousine has been built in the workshops of Bentley Mulliner, the specialist division of Bentley Motors. With an array of technical and coachbuilding skills at its disposal, Bentley Mulliner provides a wide variety of bespoke services for its customers ranging from exotic veneers inlaid with personalised marquetry to the latest entertainment and business office facilities.
