Prince Charles Is Selling His Tesla Model S

For Sale / Comments

It's also one of the last Model S Long Range Plus models registered in the UK.

A few weeks ago, a special Ford Escort once owned by Princess Diana of Wales was sold at auction. The unassuming sedan was given to Diana as an engagement gift back in 1981 and sold for a whopping $72,000 - more than a Mustang Shelby GT500.

Now, another car previously owned by a member of the Royal Family is looking for a new owner. Listed for sale by Castle Motors is a Tesla Model S owned by Prince Charles, the eldest son of Queen Elizabeth II, that will make you feel like royalty.

The Prince of Wales is a passionate environmentalist, so it's not surprising to see him carry out his royal duties in a Tesla Model S. According to WeBuySupercars, Prince Charles initially requested a demonstration of the Model S but ended up loving it so much he owned it for around five months before deciding to let it go.

This particular Model S is a Long Range Plus example finished in Midnight Silver Metallic with an all-black Premium interior and Figured Ash Wood Decor. Since it left the factory, the electric sedan has clocked up 7,000 miles "in very careful hands."

Aside from having a member of the Royal Family on the previous owners list, what makes this Model S special is that it's one of the last Long Range Plus models registered in the UK before it was discontinued last year. Castle Motors is selling the royal Tesla Model S for £82,500 ($114,366). That's a considerable premium over the regular Model S Long Range, which starts at $79,990 in the US.

Before he switched to electric propulsion, Prince Charles was best known in the automotive world for his love of Aston Martins. The Prince of Wales has owned a 1994 Aston Martin Virage Volante and famously converted his DB6 Volante to run on wine to make it more eco-friendly.
