This is an email i recieved from the Aston Martin dealership in Sydney:
"I'm afraid that Aston Martin will not be attending this year's motor
I remembered your enquiry from last year and I'm sorry to say that a
number of usual suspects have chosen not to display their cars. Land
Rover, Jaguar, Porsche and Aston Martin to name a few.
Ferrari and Maserati usually have a stand, but nothing new to display
Keep your eye on the motoring press over the coming weeks though, as
you will see Aston Martin getting a lot of Press. I have attached a
"hint" for you"
The hint is a pic of a test DB9 with much black plastic and tape....
Don't you think they'd want to give Australia a look at their cars, or aren't they interested in selling here?
