Ever heard of Prince Marcus von Anhalt? No? Then obviously you’re not traveling in the wrong circles. He was born plain old Marcus Eberhardt in 1969 and apprenticed as a butcher, but acquired his title, Prinz von Anhalt, Herzog zu Sachsen und Westfalen, Graf von Askanien, after a transaction in 2006 with Zsa Zsa Gabor and her ninth husband Frederic Prinz von Anhalt; he was adopted, they got a few million euros. Where did he get all the cash? He is one of Germany’s largest and most high-profile brothel and nightclub owners.
Prinz Germany, as he likes to style himself, was spotted driving around in this pimped-out Rolls Royce Phantom Drophead Coupe in Monaco the other day, which is done up in a multicolored Louis Vuitton monogram pattern. It’s a sort of rolling advertisement for his Royal Race, a rival to the Gumball 3000 the potty prince started up last year. It’s one of only 26 exotic autos he owns, but by far the most hideous. We’ve seen some obnoxiously modified Rolls Royce cars but we think this Phantom Drophead Coupe with its Louis Vuitton outer skin and larger than life alloy rims is so vulgar that it deserves to be ranked amongst the worst. Prince Marcus has already spent a bit of time in jail, but for ruining this Rolls he deserves to be locked up again post haste.
