The 1/3-scale Cadillac Roadster, powered by and used to demonstrate the first-ever electric self-starter, was last seen driving the streets of central London and at Sandringham in Norfolk over ninety years ago. Made in London under Frederic Bennett?s direction in 1912, it was bought by Queen Alexandra as a present for her grandson Prince Olaf of Norway.
