Kate Middleton’s old Vw Golf for sale image

The chance to own a bit of Royal motoring history doesn’t come up very often. But would you pay $60,000 for a 10-year-old Volkswagen Golf?

Well, Duchess of Cambridge, Kate Middleton was driving around in a Volkswagen Golf when she met Prince William. Now the car is on sale on eBay.

It is a 1.4-liter 4-cylinder engine Golf that has approximately 62,500 miles on the clock – of those, Middleton herself put about 60,000 on the car.

Sonny Brazil, who bought the car from James in 2009 for about $2900, told the Daily Mail,“James was very nice, a real gentleman. At the time I didn’t put two and two together because he didn’t exactly say he was related to Kate but when I noticed the log book and saw the first owner was Catherine Middleton I got quite excited.”

The auction is set to end today, and currently the bidding stands at £39,600. You can view the eBay listing here.
