Well that barrier has now been removed, as Infiniti has teamed up with Relais & Châteaux's Club 5C to create the EX30d Black Premium - as far as we're aware the first special edition ever to come complete with VIP hotel and restaurant access.
Since a PH hack's salary tends to lean us more towards Prestatyn than Park Lane, we're not exactly au fait with these things, but apparently Club 5C was created in 2004 as a way of "sharing more of the Relais & Châteaux experience with its most loyal clients."
All sounds very nice - and now it is a 'money can buy' thing, as a two-year membership to Club 5C is being chucked in with the £45,671 EX30d Black Premium. Ordinarily you'll still have to pay for your time away, but one night with dinner and breakfast for two in a Relais & Châteaux hotel is included as a first taste when you buy one.
Infiniti is selling 150 EX30d Black Premiums across Europe, so book now to avoid disappointment, as we believe they say in the leisure industry...
