Billionaires Mulling Aston Martin Bid For Some Seriously Premium Seat Covers

The Financial Times reported earlier today Bernard Arnault and Albert Frere, the billionaire financiers, joined together to create an investment fund of up to a billion euros ($1.25 billion) and "they are looking at Aston Martin." Since Arnault is chairman and chief executive of luxury goods retailer LVMH Moet Hennessy Louis Vuitton SA, which includes luxe brands like Louis Vuitton and Fendi, we'd totally expect all sorts of fun and expensive options on the 2012 models. We've even heard Diddy's put down an order for two Aston's — one with the Fendi interior for the weekday and the Louis Vuitton interior for the weekends. Because you know, that's just how he rolls.
