Scotland Yard detectives supervised transfer of the wreckage from Paris. Experts will subject it to detailed examination to establish what happened before the Aug. 31, 1997 crash that killed Diana, the newspaper said.
At the time, British police expressed concerns the car had not undergone a thorough investigation at the scene.
A spokesman for the Paris Crime Brigade said, "Under French law, the car is no longer evidence and could be disposed of, but this is a special case." A French inquiry found Paul was drunk and speeding in a car he did not normally drive when he lost control, the Mirror said.
Dodi's father, Mohamed Fayed, claims his son and Diana were murdered, possibly by British intelligence.
