I was thinking about this yesterday… and we all focus on the 20k because it’s something we think it’s an absurdity of a price. But ultimately, some people drive Bentleys and Land Rovers, some drive Hyundais. What I’m saying is, it’s all relative.
So… in terms of Londinium R24… £3.7k. That machine is therefore £17k (approx. $20k). You could buy 4.5 Londiniums for the price of that machine.
Now… if we transpose that to mere mortals like us…
Gaggia Classic Pro: £500.
Bianca: £2k, 4 times the price, 5 times the price for a black or white one
Elizabeth 1.1k, ~ 2 times the price
R24: 7.4 times the price
V Eve, approx. £3k, 6 times the price
See, it’s all relative to what someone’s income or net worth is…. And there’s no way I’ll ever own one… unless I win the Euromillions one day… and even then… I’d buy something else. 🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣
