Aston Martin

 

An Aston Martin Rapide S, 2009 version, spotted at the pousada in Porto.  The basic model would set you back £149,500 (€179,639; $195,486), although you can pick it up secondhand for a mere £85,000.  It has a top speed of 190 mph (304 kph) and does 0 to 60 mph in 4.7 seconds, that is, if you can find anywhere to drive like that :-)

 

There was a one-day conference on in the pousada at the time, held by Fidelity, an asset management company.  Clearly, at least one of the participants had assets to spare :-)

To my eye, Tom, Aston Martins are among the most elegant-looking of cars...better in white than black, though.
Tom Wilson: They are indeed, Ray - you've certainly got to be pulling in the cash to have one!
Quelle belle voiture très élégante !
Tom Wilson: Oui, très élégante! Merci, Martine.
Quite the machine!
Tom Wilson: I guess it is pretty nice inside, too!

Well it could be Fidelity's boss I suppose Tom.
Tom Wilson: It could indeed!
I couldn't afford it Tom!
Tom Wilson: Nor me, Richard - by a long way!
No doubting it is a beautiful car.
Tom Wilson: A fine example of British design, Brian - a pity it's about all that's left of our car industry!

That is a very elegant model, Tom
Tom Wilson: A rich man's model smile
They are handsome beasts but what depreciation!
Tom Wilson: Amazing, isn't it! Wait a couple of years and it might be affordable - if you can make the running costs!
Wonderful looking but severe limitations on when and where you can let it go.
Tom Wilson: Indeed! Nowhere at all in this country!
It's a steal at twice the price...
