But when it comes the favoured car brand, it’s Mercedes that takes the top spot.

Algum 67 world leaders of the 299 have chosen some sort of Mercedes to be whisked around in.

Jaguar Land Rover placed fifth, with its Range Rover finding 14 stately homes around the world.

But when it comes to royalty, another car brand stands out as the most popular choice.

Naturalmente, Rolls-Royce comes in at number one, with its hand-built luxury cars standing for the ultimate in exclusivity.
