AN AUDI driven by Prince Harry to pick up Meghan Markle from the airport has been put up for sale for £71,900.
The royal also used the 174mph RS6 Avant to drive his future wife to Pippa Middleton’s wedding last year.
Now up for grabs on Auto Trader, the car was used to ferry Meghan back from Heathrow Airport when she flew in from Toronto.
To avoid being photographed, Harry would have a police escort on to the tarmac at Terminal 2 and would whisk Meghan off in the 2017-model Audi.
Given its royal connection, it’s no surprise the motor is kitted out with a range of luxury features.
The ‘Daytona Grey’ model has a panoramic sunroof, cruise control, heated seats, night vision assist, heads up display, a Bose sound system and seven-inch infotainment screen.
Under the bonnet, it’s powered by a twin-turbocharged 4.0-litre V8 engine which delivers a whopping 552bhp.
And it was ordered with the “Dynamic Pack”, which removes the car’s speed restriction, bumping it up from the standard 155mph top speed.
This gives it a 0-60mph time of just 3.9 seconds and a top speed of 174mph.
The top-of-the-range super-estate was kitted out with £11,000 of optional extras, taking the price new to £91,500.
But just one year later, Derby-based dealer Overton Prestige has bought the Audi and put it up for sale on Auto Trader for £71,900, with just 4,464 miles on the clock.
More classic motors up for sale
Erin Baker, editorial director at Auto Trader, said: “This is a smashing car perfectly suited to any aspiring Royal.
“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.”
