“Race on Sunday, Sell on Monday” is the philosophy which underpinned the most iconic sporting marques such as Ferrari, Porsche and Lotus and it still applies today, with Aston Martin, who successfully completed the gruelling 39th ADAC Nürburgring 24 Hour race last month and has now announced a road-going version of the V12 Zagato race car.

PERSPECTIVE: What’s in a Name?

“When you talk, you sound like Super Mario on our Nintendo game,” my children tease.

“Do I?” “Yes. It’s funny.”

Doesn’t the Italian language and/or the Italian accent sound… unusual, to the Brits? Exotic, perhaps? Sexy, even?
