And you can see why they bother. The girls who go shopping in Knightsbridge on a sultry Monday afternoon in mid-summer aren’t really girls at all. Nor are they women. They’re of alien extraction. Impeccable in every facet, so expensive even to the untrained eye that they ought to have an honesty box attached to them somewhere, probably made by Fendi, into which you can drop a couple of quid out of quiet appreciation.
A maintenance donation if you will. Like the British Museum. Unfortunately today is not a good day for the bum-fluffed Veyron owners of this world to get laid. Because Citroen is in town. The girls look only at the GT on their way into Harrods from behind their big sunglasses. They look at the energised haunches in that permanent crouch, past the scissor doors to the swathes of polished copper in the cockpit.
