Premium automaker Lexus has joined the race of luxury cars for official royal weddings after British brand Aston Martin stole the show at the Prince William and Kate Middleton wedding celebrations on April 29, 2011.

A specially prepared version of the Lexus LS 600h L will serve as the official Royal Wedding car on the occasion of the marriage of Prince Albert II of Monaco to Charlene Wittstock on Saturday 2nd July 2011. The Prince has already awarded a royal warrant to the company as Official Supplier for the wedding.

Currently being converted to maximize visibility of the Royal Couple to the Monegasque population during that day, the specially prepared Royal Wedding Lexus is one of seven full hybrid LS 600hs which will be exclusively used to transport all members of the Royal Family throughout the occasion.

The car is designed to minimize the environmental impact of the wedding celebrations by combining the most sophisticated power-train technology with uniquely environmentally-friendly credentials. On the wedding day, the Lexus LS 600h L will fully demonstrate its hybrid technology by operating in a zero-emission mode for around 85 percent of the newlywed's tour through the streets of the Principality driving under electric motor power alone.
