It turns out that the usual excuses for denying consumers a station wagon variant of a given car – the regulatory hurdles, lack of demand from the market and expense of homologation – can be circumvented with one simple item; cash.

Given the popularity of the Porsche Panamera and the Ferrari FF, this kind of product may not be a bad fit for Aston Martin, but there aren’t any current plans to add one to the lineup. In any case, those of you looking for a way to get your dream wagon now have a very easy formula. Now if you’ll excuse me, I’m off to buy some scratch-off lottery tickets.
