Bond's Wheels

I told you that Miami has two things going for it: expensive cars and bad drivers (in my opinion) in its streets, quite a lethal combination. Today, I think I insulted Edgard in a big way when I casually commented on his car: "Hey, I didn't think that Chevrolet can make a decent looking car like yours here!" That infuriated Edgard to no end! "This is no Chevrolet, buster, this is no less than a Bond's car: an Aston Martin!"

Exccuuuussseee me!

James Bond, special agent 007 was driving an Aston Martin DB5 in 1963. That car had a 4 liter, 282 HP and topping speed out to a mere 145 miles per hour (233 km/h) so Edgard's car here would leave agent Bond's car in the dust with his 2009 Aston Martin DBS coupe, 6 liter 510 HP, 6 speed manual transmission with a maximum speed of 190 mph (303 km/hour.) On second thought, this is Miami, and knowing how lousy the drivers are in my personal view, I would stay a thousand yards away from Edgard when he moves his car out of here. Besides, Edgard's no Bond.
