Orange cars – These are the most famous cars of the Royal Family

Ford Sierra XR4i

As a student you do stupid things. Also Willem-Alexander, who drove into the ditch with his Ford Sierra XR4i after a party in Leiden. The prince apparently could not resist the temptation of a 150 hp strong V6, because just before the accident he was traveling 65 km/h where 50 was allowed. Willem-Alexander was fined 300 guilders.

Volvo 850

Willem-Alexander could not do anything about the accident with his Volvo 850. In 1995 he was on his way to winter sports with his girlfriend Emily Bremers and drove about 150 km/h on the autobahn. When a car in front of him suddenly braked, the prince had to anchor too, with his Volvo swinging and eventually hitting the guardrail of the central reservation.

Audi A8 L

No longer an extended Ford Scorpio or Volvo S80 for Willem-Alexander, but an Audi A8 L. One that was considerably extended by the Dutch coachbuilder Remetz (now bankrupt). The king is not the only one with such an XXL Audi. A second one was built by Remetz, which was intended for a Frisian millionaire.

Ferrari 456 GT

Willem-Alexander has his ‘need for speed’ from his grandfather. Prince Bernhard was known for his fondness for Ferrari. He has worn a number of them, often in green. Are emerald colored Ferrari 500 Superfast is in the Louwman Museum in The Hague. His last Ferrari was a dark green 456 GT, in a non-metallic color that not everyone will find equally attractive.

Alfa Romeo 8C Spider

Well, what more can we say about Prince Bernhard Junior. He is known for his huge ‘building portfolio’ and the fact that he is co-owner of the Circuit Zandvoort. He also has a deep love for cars. Bernhard has, among other things, a rare Alfa Romeo 8C Spider. Very nice, in red.
