Get 15 MPG With the Aston Martin DB9, My Favorite Car (Video)
Erin has a fascination with small cars. No, make that tiny cars, from the soon to be built in Shreveport Elio to the latest, need a microscope to spot, Toyota. I, on the other hand, being a major proponent of fossil fuels, like 'em big...and the lower the mpg the better. So, meet my favorite, the Aston Martin DB9.
The DB9 is best known as the personal vehicle of superspy James Bond, in movies including 'Casino Royale', 'Quantum of Solace' and most recently, ''Skyfall'. And if you're thinking about grabbing one, well, you can't get one here. You've got to go to Dallas to do that, where you'll shell out a cool $185,000 for a car that gets about 15 miles per gallon.
But honestly, which would you rather have? A car barely larger than a baby buggy, or a British automotive masterpiece that tops out at about 190 miles per hour? Yep. Thought so. See you in Dallas.
