Queen's special Land Rover for sale - can be controlled from the back seat.

A Land Rover which the Queen controls from the back seat is going up for auction with an asking price of £18,000.

The customised vehicle features a 'traffic light' control system that allows the 86-year-old monarch to express whether she wants the driver to stop, slow down or start.

Still in almost perfect condition having travelled only 1,900 miles in its 35 years, the Land Rover III is being sold by the Ministry of Defence at specialist classic car auction house Historics at Brooklands in Surrey, on 24 November.

Edward Bridger-Stille, director at Historics, explained: "We are excited and honoured to be entrusted with the task of finding a new home for such a unique vehicle.

"We pride ourselves on bringing distinctive vehicles to auction, and despite prolific production of the Series III Land Rover, it's highly unlikely one like this will ever come to auction again."
