Prince Harry Once Owned This 550-HP Audi RS6 Avant

Auction

This royal Audi RS6 Avant can be yours for just under $95,000.

If you ask us, the highlight of the Royal Wedding was the exquisite cars on display. Megan Markle was chauffeured in a 1950 Rolls-Royce Phantom IV and Harry whisked the couple away in an electric Jaguar E-Type Zero. Clearly, he has impeccable taste in cars.

Case in point: he used to drive Megan around in this luxurious Audi RS6 Avant, which is currently listed for sale on AutoTrader for just under $95,000. While you may expect him to fly the British flag by driving quintessentially English cars, the Audi RS6 Avant is a smart choice since it’s discreet enough to avoid attracting attention from the press. Under the hood is a twin-turbo 4.0-liter V8 producing a hefty 552 hp. 0-62 mph takes just 3.9 seconds, ensuring he could make a quick getaway from prying photographers. Harry also spec'ed it with the Dynamic Package, which raises the top speed from an electronically limited 155 mph to 174 mph.

As you’d expect for a car belonging to the Royal Family, the RS6 Avant has been kitted out with £11,330 ($14,858) worth of hand-picked extras such as a panoramic sunroof and, naturally, privacy glass. It also has heated front and rear seats, and the sports exhaust produces a suitably aggressive soundtrack. It only has 4,500 miles on the clock and is in excellent condition. Unlike other cars with celebrities on the previous owner's list, the price doesn’t seem too extortionate either.

“This is a smashing car perfectly suited to any aspiring Royal,” Erin Baker, Auto Trader’s Editorial Director, commented. “The Audi RS6 Avant is one of the fastest estate cars on the market doing 0 to 60 in 3.9 seconds, and it has a roaring exhaust to excite any petrol head.”

“The car boasts a 17 reg and low mileage, so it begs the questions why is the Prince selling so soon? Maybe he’s on the market for a bigger family car, in which case we’d recommend a Skoda Superb, which won the best family car in our recent New Car Awards, or maybe he’s after an electric car, having driven Meghan away after their wedding in an electric Jag?.”
