Spending It

Bullet-proof with Pink Leather
By Big Spender

Do I need a Ferrari Enzo? Or should it be a Hummer-limo? At the Super Car and Bike Exhibition at Gostinny Dvor I had the chance to check out which one would look best on Rublevskoye.

In Moscow theres nothing too special now about a Rolls Royce, Aston Martin or Jaguar, so I almost gave that stand a miss, but I liked the look of the Zimmer. At 150,000 euros they hadnt sold a single one not enough rich people in Moscow? surely not but the young lady whose primary job was to make attractive cars look even more attractive was still smiling, having sold several Aston Martins.

I was sidetracked by the motorbikes from Motor Art Design Studio, official Harley-Davidson partners, but for $80,000 Id like more than two wheels.

A Hummer-limo? A Swedish dealer had driven it to Russia, and the interest had been almost unlimited, so he wasnt worried that he still hadnt sold a single one. There was no price, of course, because you order it exactly as you want; bullet-proof with pink leather is very popular. I took a quick glance inside, and although I couldnt find the Jacuzzi, I did like the bar.

There were several tuning shops; you could have a souped-up BMW M6 for 200,000 euros which made it the most expensive car in the show (for a BMW?).

And the Ferrari Enzo? There wasnt one! just a poor Spider. And no Lamborghini and no Zonda. Whatever is Moscow coming to!
