Queen Elizabeth II will turn 90 years old on April 21, 2016, and Vauxhall wants to ensure her Majesty has the right wheels for her big day.
Therefore, the British-build Vauxhall Astra has received a few upgrades fit for a queen. Dubbed the “Royal Astra”, the compact car has been graced with personalized touches including a retractable red carpet, windshield wiping hand, Union Jack cushions, and of course, a corgi booster seat, the queen’s canine companion of choice.
Her Majesty has been a Vauxhall owner for 50 years, all wearing a bespoke Balmoral Green hue. This Astra will wear a more pedestrian red, but the features have been tailored to royal expectations.
You could say this Astra is a bit Astra-cratic.
