Aston Martin Vanquish - 24 hours

So, would you spend $2,500 for 24 hours with an Aston Martin Vanquish? That is the actual rate from the luxury rental place here.
YIKES

Yes, $32,000 a month...

I don't know who this Austin Martin guy is, but he sounds worth it!

You know I looked at rental prices for high end cars when we were last going to vegas, and came to this conclusion: WHY?

Insane. The only people that would do this, are the ones that could afford the car, so why?

Ouch, that hurts all the way over here....

Anyways, the Vanquish is quite a fine automobile. I've had the opportunity to drive one for a few days. The power is unreal! The attention it gets is even better, although when I saw Eliza Duschku (sp.) she didn't even look my way.
For $2500.00/day on the rental, I'll pass...

My brother and I are going to split the cost of a 355 spider next time up. Price is negotiable, if you do it in the middle of the week or in the low season you could get it for much less. I think we are going to drive it for maybe an hour or two, I think it will be fun. WyTF not?

I earned my probation. Again.
