The Aston Martin guide to towing
Can you combine a city car with a V12 GT? We strap a trailer to a Virage and tow a Cygnet through Monaco...

At which point, I have pulled halfway out, to be faced down in a classic chicken situation by a Monaco Principality bus. A big, uncaring edifice of a bus, whose driver is staring at me with a mixture of paint-stripping contempt and poisonous hatred. The traffic has immediately started to back up, the horns are already angrily blaring, and I must reverse. Reverse a trailer longer than my car, 70° down a street with six inches of space either side, slightly downhill, with the margins populated by very, very expensive cars. And I must do so before the currently briskly pedestrian policeman catches up, and throws me in jail for attempted murder. Frisson of urgency, then.
