One Car Garage - Aston Martin

Welcome to One Car Garage, in which I choose a manufacturer or class of vehicle, and you decide choose single vehicle (no matter how old, no matter how exclusive) to live with for the rest of your life. This is your only vehicle, and all expenses are paid for, including price of entry, insurance, gas, etc.

Yesterday was spent with the all American marque, Plymouth. It was a gloriously muscle-filled day with plenty of ferocious fish. Today, we’ll be heading over to Britain to take on one of the more quintessentially British brands of the island. I’m talking of Aston Martin of course.


I went into this thinking it’d be an easy choice. I had what I was going with in my head, but as always, I decided to to a little bit of research into some of the stuff I may not have known about (after all, reliability isn't a massive concern, as I’ll effectively have an army of mechanics at my disposal). That’s when I saw a variety of utterly fantastic low-volume and one-offs. Things like the Lagonda Rapide Shooting Brake, and some older Zagato creations. In the end though, after much debate, I did in fact stick to my initial idea. I just can’t deny the gloriousness that is the Rapide Bertone Jet 2+2 one off. It’s a Rapide that’s also a shooting brake! It doesn't hurt that it’s coachwork is done by my most favoritest design house in the whole wide world. Bertone, I love you.
