The magazine Vorsten [Princes] knows that the Audi has been adapted in the Netherlands to the wishes of the king. The car was extended 45 centimeter and equipped with all comforts. There is a fridge, a TV and Wi-Fi on board.
The seats are covered with lambskin, Vorsten writes. The car, just like all other royal court cars, has been painted in a special dark blue colour.
Autoblog.nl knows that the 6,3 liter engine delivers an output of 500 horsepower. According to this blog there is a price tag of over 597,000 euros for the armored car.
Until now, the monarch was transported in a prolonged Volvo S80. That brand has been dominating for the past ten years the car collection of the royal House of Orange. Thus, for Willem-Alexander’s inauguration last year, a whole fleet of that brand was deployed.
