Prince Harry is Selling His 2017 Audi RS6 Avant Online
Want to drive like a British royal? It’s simple–just buy Prince Harry‘s car. He’s actually selling his 2017 Daytona Gray Audi RS6 4 Avant Tiptronic Quattro for USD 93,876 (or nearly PHP 5 million).
That’s almost the price of a brand new Toyota Land Cruiser–without the royal treatment… and Meghan Markle.
What’s interesting about this car, aside from being owned by a famous British royal, was that it was only bought a year ago. It’s currently posted at an Auto Trader listing, with the dealer (Overton Prestige) confirming Prince Harry’s ownership.
Another interesting fact: The Duke of Sussex drove it to pick up his future wife, Meghan Markle, at Kensington Palace. She was at the passenger seat when they drove to Pippa Middleton’s and James Matthew’s evening wedding reception in Bucklebury Berks.
What’s more, Prince Harry was also reportedly seen using the same car–with police escorts on the tarmac at Terminal 2–to pick up Meghan at Heathrow Airport.
The car is in excellent condition. It hasn’t been driven much, as proven by its odometer reading: 7,184 km. There isn’t any available information as to what lover’s trysts it has seen when driving Prince Harry and Meghan, but at least you know there was one time his royal ass was sitting on those heated seats, waiting for his lady love.
The Prince’s five-seat estate vehicle is fitted with a 4.0-liter engine that can go from 0-60 mph in 3.9 seconds. Its twin-turbo V8 engine can reach a top speed of 249 kph and can crank up 552 hp. It has 21-inch 5 Twin Spoke Alloys, and an RS Sport Suspension Plus with Dynamic Ride Control.
Standard features include MMI Navigation, Bose Surround Sound, Audi Music Interface, Multi-Function Steering Wheel, Rain Sensors. There were a lot of modifications made to it, however. Apparently, his older brother, Prince William, had a hand in upgrading it, and added heated seats, cruise control, privacy glass, panoramic roof, and night vision to its ample features. The additional cost? A whopping USD 14,318 or nearly PHP 760,000.
That’s actually enough to buy an additional car–like an entry-level sedan–in the Philippines.
Safety features are impressive, and fit for a royal. Aside from the usual “deactivating” airbags and brake lights, they include: Audi Parking System Plus, Hill – Hold Assist, Tire Mobility Kit, Head Restraints – Front and Rear, LED Headlights with LED Daytime, Light Sensors, Immobiliser, Power-Assisted Steering, Electronic Stability Control (ESC), ISOFIX Child Seat Mounting & Top Tether, Tire Pressure Loss Indicator, and Anti Theft Alarm.
Sadly, the estate car doesn’t come with the Prince Harry’s Royal Protection Officers, which is a bummer and an abomination to driver’s rights. Still, the car has enough safety features to make you feel they’re with you at all times, so it’s okay.
