Aston Martin LogoI know one thing I'll miss about Dubai - the cars.

Now, I'm not a big car guy. But Dubai is sick with cars.

Maseratis at every corner, more Rolls-Royces that you can shake a stick at, Porsches chasing each other down Sheikh Zayed Road ... and then there are the cars that you don't even recognize.

A few months ago I wrote about the Dubai Motor Show and the Maybach 62 Landaulet (see Maybach 62 Landaulet).

Have you ever seen a Maybach?

I still haven't.

But yesterday we were stuck in traffic (of course) and we were behind some expensive looking car with a logo I didn't recognize. I meant to look it up when we got home, but instead I went to Toyota.com to see what colors the Camry comes in. We're thinking a used Camry will be our second car when we get home. That's what speed we are. We're hoping to find a 2007 with low miles in the "Magnetic Gray Metallic" color. (That's Toyotaspeak for "dark gray").

Anyway, later last night I saw that the trailer for the new James Bond movie Quantum Of Solace is online so I had to fire it up. Love the Bond.

As I'm watching, I recognize the logo from earlier in the day.

We were behind an Aston Martin DB9.

This thing costs $180,000 and goes from zero to sixty in 4.6 seconds.

Huh.

But does it come in "Magnetic Gray Metallic"?

I saw the trailer last night....I went to see Hancock...When I lived in Atlanta I used to see all sort of expensive cars but never saw DB9 or a Vanquish.
