A V8 burble is loved by a true petrolhead , it's what a true petrolhead aspires to owning. A diesel executive is for someone who can't really afford to run the petrol version that's my opinion, which I will stick to.😎
Errrr....show me the company that provides it's execs with V8 petrols.

The one I work for. Finance director had an Aston Martin until he retired. Works manager also has one ,but I dont think that one is a company car.

He bought a house for 700,000. Immediately had it bulldozed and a nicer one built to replace it. Just liked the plot the old one had been built on ::) ;D
I would like to experience being proper rich. Even for a month, just to see if its as enjoyable as it looks.  ;D

Like I said, certainly not dissing V8s. Far from it. Its a 6/12 cylinder is smoother and better suited to limos.

As for costs, whilst I probably could afford 20,000 miles pa at sub 20mpg, I'd probably have to give up food and drink ;D

Standard issue board of exec car where my OH works appears to be a Maserati. Though that doesn't preclude derv, these days.

Where I work it's all Range Rovers. Derv, of course.

We'll see how rich he is when the company has it's next audit.  ;D

He has built his wealth and the company with it by being brilliant at his job. Despite being a disagreeable wee shite.   ;)
The company started in 1968 in Old street with a few employees, and the dreams ambitions and determination of one  self taught cockney geezer. It grew to a certain point and then the aforementioned finance director came on board.
His financial knowhow then helped take it to a PLC which bought out other less well run companies and has offices and facilities all over the world. They even bought out a Chinese company a couple of years ago.
I don't begrudge people like that their wealth tbh. Just wish I had their brains.  ;D

During my last years of having a company car it became less desirable due to the changes in taxation on such "perks".  I did very high mileage, but for some colleagues stuck in Head Office the tax penalty became higher and higher.  Indeed some would drive out 'on business' when ever possible to boost their declared business mileage to the Inland Revenue!

I can imagine now it is better for any director on their salaries to buy whatever they want, including V8's, and avoid the huge tax penalty. ;)

That is the very wealth and job creator businessman who Corbyn wants to dispose of in a full red socialist war on Capitalism! ::) ::) ::) >:( >:(
