Would You Like Some Wine With That Aston Martin?

Prince Charles In Aston MartinPrince Charles of England owns an Aston Martin DEB5 – which is the same convertible model that was used by Sean Connery in Goldfinger. His car is more unique in the fact that it runs on ethanol made from cheese and white wine by product.

The Aston Martin was a gift from Queen Elizabeth to her first son on his 21st birthday and Charles, an enthusiastic environmentalist decided to convert it. Not only the Aston Martin though, the Prince decided to convert his entire auto park: two Jaguars, two Audis, and a Range Rover that all run on used food based oil.

Sir Michael Peat, a secretary of the heir to the throne, explained that the wine used came from near Highgrove, his residence in Wiltshire (the wine was leftover from the British wine makers that had reached UE production limits for the year).
