Monaco commissions a Lexus LS 600h for "the other royal wedding"
The BMW M3 Royal Edition may have been an April Fool’s Day hoax – the British royal couple will use a variety of coaches to travel between Buckingham Palace and Westminster Abbey for the ceremony – but the heir to the throne of the United Kingdom isn’t the only prince getting married. So is Prince Albert II of Monaco – ruling monarch of the Mediterranean enclave – and for his wedding he’s gone a different route.
At the July 2nd wedding to Miss Charlene Wittstock, the royal couple will be riding in a specially-prepared Lexus LS600h, complete with integrated flashing lights, the royal insignia and the prized “MC 01″ license plate. The hybrid luxury sedan is particularly well suited to the task as it can parade around on pure electric mode. In the process, Lexus has become official supplier to His Serene Highness and his principality. Follow the jump for the press release.
