Aston's sales are down quite a bit, but unlike mass market producers, a lot of their customers still need 12 digit calculators to add up their total wealth, so they, like Rolls Royce, are still producing cars.
Bentley however have suffered badly, as the new Bentley range is quite "fashionable" with certain folks who've had to reign in the spending recently.
Many makers of low volume high spec cars have taken a basic car and tweaked mechanically or fittings and fixtures or both - Cosworth Cortina- The Wicker Mini[Was that a 'Hooper' job?] 'Bog' standard Merc's and Beemers have all come in for that tweaking process.
Now if Aston or RR or Bentley or Merc did a BOGOF Bigun for Dad and a 'Shopping Trolley for the missus . That would be real sense
If the 'Baby were Electric- then the big'yn for weekends and the electric baby for commuting/shopping even more sense'
