LONDON (AP) - Officials say a Rolls-Royce limousine made to the specifications of the late Princess Margaret will be auctioned later this month.

The Silver Shadow was also owned by Hollywood star Burt Reynolds.

Auction officials at Bonhams said Thursday the 1975 Rolls-Royce is expected to sell for more than 20,000 pounds ($32,800) when it is auctioned along with other vintage Rolls-Royces and Bentleys on June 18.

The limousine boasts red coachwork with contrasting gold details and a special black leather interior requested by Margaret, who was the younger sister of Queen Elizabeth II.

Reynolds bought the car in 1984 and kept it at his Florida ranch.
