02: Stephen Serio

Stephen Serio is the President of Aston Martin of New England, Lotus Motorsports, and The Bond Group. He started his business in 1987 specializing in exporting right-hand drive 1960s Aston Martins back to the UK. Today, selling new Aston Martins and Lotus cars is about 10% of what he really does, which is sourcing, buying, and selling rare European classic cars. He has helped build some large and important Porsche, Ferrari, and Aston Martin collections over his many years in the business. Stephen’s goal is to keep his collection to about 12 cars, a goal he’s never been successful at. He is an avid 1000-mile rally driver, plays golf, does some shooting and spends time with his family. His first career was in advertising, television, and photography and he grew up outside of Boston.

YOUR BUSINESS
When the new Aston Martin Zagato Shooting Brake showed up at the shop, I fell in love with it because of all of its features and speed. Many others are also excited by some of the new luxury cars.

PARTING ADVICE
If your car isn’t raising your blood pressure because it excites you, or doesn’t lower your pressure when you’re looking at it, you probably should get rid of it.
