I don’t know if you know this, but Prince Harry got married recently. It wasn’t a big deal. But you know what is? His 2017 Audi RS6 Avant that’s for sale now, and it’s as bitchin’ as they come. The car is listed on AutoTrader in the UK for £71,900 (or approximately $94,000) and has £11,330 worth of options, like a panoramic sunroof, privacy glass, heated front and rear seats and a top speed restriction increase to 174 mph instead of the commoner’s 155 mph. It has the twin-turbocharged 4.0-liter V8 with 552 horsepower (good for outrunning the paparazzi), all-wheel drive (good for fox hunting) and a zero to 60 time of 3.9 seconds (good for rushing to make afternoon tea). And it only has 4,464 miles on the clock. It’s basically brand new. The press release that accompanied the AutoTrader listing also assures us that “No corgi hairs have been found on the honeycomb-stitched valcona leather interiors.” I’m utterly chuffed to hear it. Harry also used this RS6 to drive Meghan Markle to Pippa Middleton’s wedding reception in Bucklebury in May 2017, if you’re into ~*celebrities*~ . Here I was thinking that I had nothing in common with a British white guy, but it turns out that we have similar tastes in cars. I wonder if he also has a soft spot for beat-to-shit first-gen Dodge Vipers.
