Inside the Danish royal family’s INCREDIBLE car collection featuring a Rolls-Royce and special number plates | The Sun
IMPRESSIVE car collections require lots of cash to buy and run, but that isn't a problem for a royal family.
The Danish royal family might not be the first that comes to mind, but it has a seriously impressive fleet of motors.
The fleet is known collectively as the 'Crown Cars' because their number plates all have an image of a crown together with a number against a black plate.
The most prized of all the cars is known as 'Big Crown' – a 1958 Rolls-Royce with 140,000kms on the clock.
