It's not made from real carbon fiber, but a platinum pattern that resembles the weave of carbon fiber mesh has been created in the enamel. This collection starts at £55 for a side plate and goes all the way up to £115 for the large dinner place. It all sounds very reasonable until you realize that the official website doesn't say this is the price of a full plate set, just a single dish.
How much would it cost to serve 6 people in Aston Martin carbon china plates? So that's £55 for the side plate, £75 for the rim soup plate, £70 for the desert plate and £115 for the dinner plate, which adds up to £315. Times six… that £1,890 for a cool conversation piece.
The same company also sells carbon fiber tea cups and saucers for £110. So that's another £660 just so you can serve some Earl Gray.
You'd think that we got our calculations wrong, but when an official Aston Martin cocktail shaker costs £5,000… yeah, what we're saying starts to sound plausible.
