Princess Diana: Death Car For Sale

by | 7th, September 2008

PRINCESS Diana is back. Not that she ever went away.

Today Sunday Telegraph readers can play a free DVD called: “The Queen – A Life in Film: The Diana Years.”

Scene 1: Look on as Her Majesty sits in her Fiat Uno and revs her engine in a rare show of guts and drive as Diana crosses the Palace courtyard with supreme elegance, refined poise and a cheeky smile.

And that is not all. The Mail has more sensation: “French owner of the Diana death crash car wants it back… to sell to Fayed.”

To put in his sop window as a sign that that anything can be bought in London’s biggest corner shop, and that they come to stare?

Princes William and Harry are facing renewed anguish over the death of their mother after the company that owns the Mercedes from her Paris crash revealed it wants to cash in on the car’s history.

Cash in on Diana? How? The Telegraph is giving her away…

But now Jean-Francois Musa, manager of Paris-based Etoile Limousines, is demanding the car back, saying: ‘It’s worth a great deal of money.’

How much?

It is believed the car – which cost £70,000 new – could fetch as much as £1million.

Believed. By whom? Does it contain anything of Diana’s?

The wreckage still bears blood stains from the night of August 31, 1997, when Henri Paul hit a concrete pillar in the Pont d’Alma tunnel at 65mph while photographers chased the car on motorcycles.

So Fayed wants it, as the headline says?

A spokeswoman for Mr Al Fayed said yesterday: ‘It’s disgusting to think that someone wants to profit from the tragedy. Mr Al Fayed is not interested in pursuing this in any way.’

But the Mail is interested.

Meanwhile, on the fabled sixth floor of the Harvey Nichols department store, Diana slips in a DVD and laughs long and loud…
