Prince Charles’ Aston Martin Runs On Wine And Cheese

In its original specification, the DB6’s 4.0-liter straight-six pumped out 282 hp. However, since the conversion Prince Charles says his cheese-and-wine-powered Aston Martin DB6 runs better and is more powerful than it was when running on gasoline. “At first, the engineers weren’t convinced that the conversion would work, but I insisted that it would,” Prince Charles said. “When the conversion was done, they had to admit that the car now performs better than ever.”

Driving a car that runs on wine and cheese has another benefit, too: “Also, it smells delicious as you’re driving along,” he told The Telegraph back in 2008.
