WHO WOULD PAY 1 MILLION POUNDS FOR A CAR ?
Didn’t an old Bugatti recently sell at auction for £3million plus?
I’ve never been one to question why anyone would spend whatever amount on anything – if you want something and can afford it, why not. If someone has splashed out on something you wouldn’t splash out on, what does it matter.
If I had a million to spare and wanted a particular car, then I’d buy it. That’s a hell of a big if though! 😉Posted 8 years agomboySubscriber
If £1million was pocket change to me as it is to a few people in this world, I wouldn’t think twice on spending it. Though I probably wouldn’t buy that new Aston in fairness.
As it is, if I EVER have £1million at all, I’ll be an extremely happy man, and I doubt very much it would be getting spent on a car!Posted 8 years agosteve_b77Member
According to one of the designers @ work whos mate who has a promotions company – they did the launch of the DB7 – the people who buy cars like that have the cash floating about, it’s not something they generally have to save for get on finance etc, they just buy them.
Talking to a lad @ a wedding I went to recently, who works for Bentley on the Arnarge Design team, they’ve had several orders canceled with a non-returnable 70k deposite, not because the buyers can’t afford them but because they can’t be seen to be spending 225k on a car when the business world is in financial turmoil.Posted 8 years agoIdleJonSubscriber

Yeah right – when have people with obscene amounts of wealth had this sort of discretion?Posted 8 years agoNZColSubscriber
But the sort of people who can spend 1M on a car barely even have this register on their scale of wealth. My mate manages his brothers property business here in NZ, they buy upmarket properties to use as lodges, his bro is probably worth many hundreds of M’s so to him to have a DB7 sitting in the arage here being driven 4 weeks a year is nothing. We recently went and scoped out a new purchase just north of Auckland (we took our bikes as we needed to ‘look around’ and its a humungous farm !) and then that was bought for a shade under 30M…but to him its not really that big a deal. So its all relative. But if i had 1m i would be more interested in not working than buying a car !Posted 8 years agosamuriMember
what if an apple cost £2500.00?
Then you’d have to be stark raving mad to buy one.

£1k on a bike isn’t the same as 1million on a car though is it? I’d say £10k on a bike might be more comparable. Would the function of a £10k bike make it worthwhile spending so much more than a £2k bike? (Off the top of my head, I can’t think of any £10k bikes, but you know what I mean!)
Back to the original thread, I can see where your coming from – 1million on a reworked Aston rather than on a brand new design (cf Bugatti). I’ve got to say that despite being interested in cars for years, Astons do very little for me, and I find it very difficult to see why they charge so much anyway. So no, I wouldn’t buy it. Perhaps if I had the money I might buy a classic Ferrari for a million, but I’d have to have an awful lot of money.Posted 8 years ago
