FOR KINGS IN ALL COUNTRIES
I'm a sucker for well-written car reviews, and this one by Lawrence Ulrich doesn't disappoint, especially in his sensitivity for the current economic climate as he reviews one of the world's most expensive cars:
But given the economy, anyone who can still afford a $270,000 Aston Martin DBS might inspire a real-world film, with enough supervillains and world domination to make 007 quiver.
Call it “The Man with the Golden Parachute.”
Wafting above the crowd is certainly the point. With 510 burbling horsepower from the V-12 power plant, angry stockholders vanish in the mirror. Seething mobs of the unemployed are drowned out by the 1,000-watt Bang & Olufsen sound system"
The actual review's pretty good too, not to mention the car of course.
Then, if one still can't get enough of the DBS, there's always the movie it currently stars in again.
Don't worry, it didn't fare much better in the last one either.
But it always recovers fully in time for a sequel, and of course for Queen and country.
