Prince William chose an environmentally friendly way to show off his new bride by leaving Buckingham Palace in his father’s vintage Aston Martin DB6 MK II.

While Prince Charles is a noted gearhead, he’s also extremely passionate about environmental causes, and has had the Aston retrofitted to run on E85 made from “wine wastage”. Prince Charles has owned the car since 1969, but is also known to drive an Audi A8 and an Audi Allroad station wagon.

    I hope that he kept all of the parts he replaced to make this beautiful DB6 run on cooking oil or whatever. The next sane owner could then restore this Aston to it’s original glory. Long live the Queen (like,forever)!!!!!
