Thank GOD that 800 people will buy this limited-edition, THREE THOUSAND DOLLAR BABBY STROLLER before I get the opportunity to save up for some of the most retarded conspicuous consumption since Homo Sapiens diverged from Neanderthals.

What about an ejector seat?

Jeremy Clarkson will love the classic styling and the handling, regardless of the price.

I still like to push the pram a lot

Oh, I'm sure the nanny will enjoy that.

More over extravagance for people with too much money looking to feel better than the rest of us.

If they have kids, then I feel better than them.  If they drop $3000 on a stroller just to push their cats around the neighborhood, man, I can't compete.

Whhhhy do you need puncture-proof tires? Do a lot of wealthy people walk the baby over nails and broken glass ?

My $30 stroller had puncture proof tires, probably because they were solid and had no inner tube

That's more money than my first 2 cars.

How much does it cost to insure an Aston Martin baby stroller?
 
2013-03-10 01:40:28 PM
I would not spend this much, but my wife and I invested in a Bugaboo stroller 3 years ago. A stroller like that is a must if you live in a city and it has lasted 2 children.
 
2013-03-10 01:51:30 PM
Whoops, I spilled a tray of beers all over it.  Totally soaked.

Maybe you shouldn't have brought your kid to a farking bar and left your stroller parked in everybody's farking way.

Say it quickly five times: "leather baby buggy bumper bar"

Now this is a 3,000 dollar baby carriage I can get behind.

Of course, Austin Martin had to loose the oil slick device because the Nannies were tripping, but they retained the machne guns under the headlights and the ejection seat for when baby is fussy or having an unplanned bowel movement.

Meanwhile, the real upper classes continue to inherit their prams from their ancestors, with many of them dating to the XIXth Century. Some of their cradles date to the Middle Ages.

A small collection of perambulators:

Some really amazing examples:

In addition to ultra-chic and expensive perambulators, the upper class child might also have a dog cart, a goat cart, a miniature carriage or even their own tiny horses and ponies.

Rich feet should never touch the ground--unless it is very, very expensive ground.

leather baby buggy bumpers

Yeah...I won't even replace my couch, carpet or table until my children are older (maybe even moved out to be sure).  Nothing like wasting money on something the children will outgrow quickly, and very likely ruin or destroy in the meantime.

Obviously, though, this is for people with more money than sense, so what do I care if someone reams them?  That's what makes America great.

I really like those, actually. If I couldn't get a cool antique pram for Future Kid, maybe I can make one to an old-timey pattern. There's a reproduction tea cart I could cannibalize for the lower structure, and the top seems to just be a very graceful, nicely-painted upholstered box with a kind of tonneau cover.

The real challenge, of course, will be remembering that the baby goes in the perambulator and the manuscript of the three-volume novel goes in the old, but capacious handbag.

There actually is a really good reason for that monstrosity.   Story goes that with all the new, stricter fuel regulations, they needed to boost their average fleet mileage rating.  Instead of designing an entirely new line or neutering their main products, they started selling these things.  Very little work, almost no actual development time wasted, and an instant boost to their average fuel economy ratings.

So, basically a Geo Metro for the modern European bureaucrat.
