Given to The Prince of Wales by The Queen on his 21st birthday, this famous car is one of the rarest and most sought-after Aston Martins; only a handful of these desirable convertibles were ever made. Finished in Seychelles Blue, the car was last seen leaving The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge‚s wedding reception last year. Yet this is no ordinary Aston Martin; The Prince, an ardent environmentalist, has had it converted to run on bioethanol fuel produced from waste generated by English wine production and whey, a by-product of cheesemaking. The Aston Martin will join a further 60 of the most stunning motor cars from around the world on September 7-9, 2012. In Her Majesty The Queen‚s Diamond Jubilee Year, the Concours of Elegance is a significant new event celebrating the style and glamour of historic automobiles. Some of these „gems‰ have never been seen before in the UK and will be on display for three days in the inner Quadrangle of Britain‚s most romantic Royal castle. Tickets, from £25, are now on sale for the public days (September 8-9, 2012) and must be pre-booked.
