Footballers' Cars

Not specifically for footballers' cars, the topic is half a lie. A thread for discussions about cars in Football, to avoid clogging up the other threads with car chat.

So, this thing:

Jebus H Christ hell but that is one fugly vehicle. Who the hell would spend 90 grand on that?

Apart from a footballer, obvs.

Your Americans love that sort of thing.

Bonusy - 19 Feb 2016 14:54:37 (#3 of 561)

It's looks like a joke though. Something like a Porsche Cayenne looks vulgar and pointless, but that thing, it looks like a teenager was given a boxy SUV and told to make the best of a bad job in body kit shop.

Yes, it's horrible. But then BMWs sell, so there's obviously a market for ugly cars.

Moschops - 19 Feb 2016 15:05:10 (#5 of 561)

It's only 90k in American money. But yeah, horrible.

And I think BMWs are alright looking, with the obvious exceptions of the 6 and all of the x series

I like Mercs.

LomaxFairchild - 19 Feb 2016 15:13:07 (#7 of 561)

You'd struggle to call them good looking, though. Car styling is not a German forte.

Moschops - 19 Feb 2016 15:14:55 (#8 of 561)

Mercedes used to make lovely sports cars, the old 280 SL is gorgeous

Cristiano Ronaldo crashed his car just before the very spot where Georgi Kinkladze crashed his. Spooky.

LomaxFairchild - 19 Feb 2016 15:16:42 (#10 of 561)

#8 Compared to a similar vintage Ferrari or Aston?

Bonusy - 19 Feb 2016 15:30:46 (#11 of 561)

I quite like the look of the Merc SLS:

And gull-wing doors, never not cool.

Well, until you're in a parking space in Tesco.

#1 is no uglier than anything else bigger than a Cortina, in fairness.

quattrobhoy - 19 Feb 2016 15:46:42 (#14 of 561)

By way of contrast, last summer, I was parked next a very standard looking Range Rover. After a few minutes, David Beckham and his mum got in and he drove off.

Bonusy - 19 Feb 2016 15:47:11 (#15 of 561)

"Bigger than a Cortina" is a surprising and unusual benchmark for the limits of aesthetics, I must say.

BrouTwo - 19 Feb 2016 15:48:38 (#16 of 561)

Your bum is bigger than a Cortina.

milhouse - 19 Feb 2016 15:49:17 (#17 of 561)

Your mum fits more people in than a Cortina.

BrouTwo - 19 Feb 2016 15:51:05 (#18 of 561)

Your mum has less rear impact protection than a Cortina.

CloakAndDagger - 19 Feb 2016 15:52:40 (#19 of 561)

See, I quite like the Cayenne. More so than any other 4x4.

And some German cars are bloody beautiful.

Sunfish - 19 Feb 2016 15:57:04 (#20 of 561)

The old shape XC90 is the only nice looking 4x4. I'd get one if a) I could afford one and b) I wasn't wedded to my Multipla.
