No idea how I missed this first time around.

Quite simply my favourite car of all time.

Sub zero. It's the exact car I would wish to have the valet pull up in for me as I slowly walk out of the casino in Monaco at 4am in my tux with the bow tie untied and the hint of an understated smile on my lips as I contemplate how I just lost it all on Black......... I would be holding, but not inhaling, a Gauloissesesssess too.

I can smell the sea air, hear the birds first tweet of the day, and picture the sun just coming up over the skyline.

And none of it would matter as I slipped into the HK500 and floored it into the dawn.

In black & white on long shot obvs.

My big concern is that I'm nowhere near cool enough for the car. I've only worn a tuxedo once and I felt like right *** the whole night. I couldn't even do the untied bowtie thing later in the night because it was once of those elasticated jobs. I'd slip on my arse coming down the casino steps and drop my keys down a grid.

That might be the best looking 4-door car ever.

Trick is to wear the twangy one then towards the end of the night pocket it and slip on an un-tied tie-up one of the same colour




I think I saw on twitter that this went for 160K.

I wonder if Ava was a regular driver of it, or if she was mostly driven.

For that money I would want to know precisely where her 'Aris had mostly been.

Driving this in the right places would almost assuredly result in each and every one of you, whoever was driving at the time, having more sex with young French ladies. Even after Brexit. Fact.
