The United Kingdom-based auction house will offer the black vehicle, ordered and specified for Diana, with just 24,691 miles.

“The car is believed to be unique as the first and only black RS Turbo Series 1. The Special Vehicle Engineering department was tasked to paint the car and fitted a regular five-slat front grille to assist in the stealth makeover and a secondary rearview mirror for the protection officer with a radio in the glove box, the cable for which is still visible today,” Silverstone Auctions wrote.

The auction house expects the lot to fetch over 100,000 pounds ($118,000). It comes from a private collection and will be up for auction on August 27.

“The car’s history file…contains dozens of MOTs confirming the mileage and the car has a Lifetime Tracker fitted which can be transferred to the new owner, plus a spare key, RS Owners Club documentation, maintenance receipts, aforementioned Ford Motor Company internal memos, newspaper clippings, glossy photographs of Princess Diana using the car and period registration documents,” Silverstone Auctions describes the vehicle’s provenance.

Previously, the auction house also sold Diana’s 1994 Audi Cabriolet for 54,000 pounds in 2016.
