Note from the Editor
For nearly three years I’ve been editing this magazine and helping car enthusiasts to spot the greats, the ones that will not only provide the ultimate road (& track) experience as well as what everyone else seems to car about, retain it’s residual value. Gone are the days where you would have to pay for the privilege of driving exciting and sporty cars. Now you can elect to choose wisely and even make some money along the way. This month I met with the founder of Prindiville PLC, a supercar and classic car specialist in London, the reason? They are breaking new ground in how to make money from high end cars. Over the last few years they have been working with a whole raft of financial industry experts, compliance officers, company lawyers and more to construct a financial structure that allows people to invest directly in the company and make a secure return. Read my article on Prindiville PLC for more details.
The three feature cars this month are the BMW M5, Porsche 911 Carrera S and Aston Martin DBS. Each have been fascinating to cover in this months publication for different reasons.
Being a Bond fan, especially of the Daniel Craig era, guarantees my appreciation for the car that starred alongside him in the first 007 film, Casino Royale, the Aston Martin DBS. It is a thoroughly reworked DB9 that could even be specified in a new colour for Aston Martin, called Casino Royale. Eric Dawson, our owner does a great job of sharing his passion for the ultimate Aston Martin.
One day I will own a BMW M5 E60, there is no disputing the sheer bonkers formula, shoehorning a 5.0 litre V10 originally intended for a Formula One race car into a four door saloon. The car is an animal, a well honed and reliable one too. Derestricted it will comfortably break the 200mph barrier.
The third is one of my personal cars, the extremely capable Porsche 911 Carrera S. I believe it is the perfect blend of old meets new, analogue and digital. Others are starting to see this too.
