Smart, sleek, sexy and fast yet endurance to last for days…well you wouldn’t expect anything less while in the company of the one and only Secret Service Agent, Bond…James Bond…well…let me clarify. My night with the man who takes his martinis “shaken, not stirred” was actually in the form of the new Aston Martin, V12 Rapide. In celebration of the highly-anticipated Blu-ray release of 5 time Oscar nominated, ‘SKYFALL’, the highest grossing Bond film of all-time as well as the longest running film franchise in history, a fleet of 4 wrapped and branded Aston Martins are providing Press, Editors and Fashionistas with a taste of Bonds world, with complimentary transportation during New York Fashion Week, courtesy of Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer Studios and Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment.
With the bustle and hustle of fashion week it was nice to sit back and relax for a moment. As I prepared to head to my destination my Driver, Brian asked if I preferred” just a ride” or the “007 experience”, I of course chose the latter with big exuberant, “YES”, but then thought I better make sure I was securely buckled in, which Brian said in a timely manner, “that is a good idea”. Well long story short the Aston Martin V12 Rapide defies all laws of gravity, for a second I thought I was literally going to have a “Back to the Future” moment and take flight! Let’s just say my night was “shaken, not stirred”.
