A Jaguar driven by Britain's Queen Elizabeth between 2001 and 2004 is up for sale. A memorabilia dealer bought it after the Queen owned it, and now he's selling it. The car comes with some regal extras — including an armrest designed to hold the Queen's famous handbag.


Good morning. I'm Linda Wertheimer.

In the market for a new set of wheels? Consider this: A 2001 Jaguar - used, but built for a queen; in fact, for the previous owner, the Queen of England, Elizabeth II. The car comes with some regal extras, including an armrest designed to hold the Queen's famous handbag and special upholstery for her pet corgis. We assume it's corgi-proof. For sale to the highest bidder.
