How much do you know about Prince Charles, who will inherit the British Throne and be the Kind of England? Do you know that the Aston Martin he often chooses for road experience is a gift that his mother, Queen Elizabeth gave on the occasion of his 21st birthday? If you know that, you have seized a quite fundamental knowledge of the Brittish Throne heir.
Prince Charles' Aston Martin DB6 Volante runs on white wine
But to become a real fan of Prince Charles, you should equip yourself with this mind-boggling fact: the prince is sternly concerned about the environment, so ask his special engineers to come up with ideas of making Prince Charles' Aston Martin DB6 Volante powered by some fuel environmentally friendly than petrol. Correspondingly, the car is now running on white wine.
Prince Charles reveals:
“They discovered they could run it on surplus English white wine, but also I hadn’t realised that they had mixed whey into it too”
“The engineers at Aston said, ‘Oh, it’ll ruin the whole thing’.
“I said, ‘Well I won’t drive it then’, so they got on with it and now they admit that it runs better and is more powerful on that fuel than it is on petrol.
“And also, it smells delicious as you’re driving along”
Prince Charles' Aston Martin DB6 Volante is sometimes used by his son Prince William as well. This was also the vehicle the young prince drove on his wedding in 2011.
