Daimler


The first car in the collection was added in 1899, when Gustaf V bought the 1899 model. In 1908 the first service car and chauffeur was employed to service the Royal Court.

Still today a Daimler is used to service the Royal Court. It is used for larger official events. The Royal Mews has twelve cars at its disposal for different tasks.
