Commissioned for the Queen and owned by the MoD, the 1978 Land Rover Royal Review State V Series III was  modified in April 1979 by REME Central Workshops in Donnington, and fitted with a traffic light system allowing the Queen to signal the driver to stop, slow or start.
 
Having covered just 1,892 miles from new, this unique feature, as well as double rear doors and rear retractable step, remain in place and in full working order, setting this Land Rover aside from the other 440,000 Series III models built between 1971 and 1985.

The vehicle has an estimate of just $25,000, but seems likely to go for more than that when it goes under the hammer on 24 November.
