the brand new AutoVIP BHP car blog, a safe refuge for the laid back petrolhead.
If you are reading this and you have a little
old rusty minivan outside that should’ve
been sold 15 years ago, you may be in a certain group who like to dream about
supercars but will never get one because they are too brash and vulgar or you
simply do not have the cash; then please read on as you will discover the path
to becoming the ultimate motorist.
Yet if you
are reading this currently and you`ve already invested your money into a
Ferrari or a Lamborghini – well done. You are in the minute part of the
population that doesn`t seem to care what people think so long as you get plenty
of good attention. You have already achieved the essence of driving. As you may
think you could drive for an F1 team you still must read on to refine your
taste and skills, to achieve the epitome of ultimate driving prowess.
First of all
the people short of cash don`t despair because there are alternatives to the
great five of Porsche, Lamborghini, Ferrari, Aston Martin and Mercedes-Benz.
For example the Ford GT is a great car and all but nowadays it’s over £130,000
which is a colossal amount of money. But you can buy the same badge, engine,
brakes, the whole package on a new generation Ford Mustang GT500 for £80,000
less, saving you lots to pay for other things to do to your Mustang because,
come on, if you are brave enough to get a Mustang then you are brave enough to
kit it out with wheels, engine and other things but that`s for you to decide.
Well your end result will be nothing short of eye grabbing. Also if you did not
kit out the car then no harm done it’s a great fun car.
As for the
ones with decent cars on their drive there are five rules to owning a supercar
or sports car, that will make you ultra-cool.
1) Never ever wear sunglasses: you may
think you look like a driving god, but in actual fact passers by will want to
hurl hard objects at your lower region and call you a “Knob”.(This rule applies
2) If someone signals you to rev your
engine standing still; Don’t, but if another driver revs at you show him who`s
boss by shattering his eardrums with an earful of your exhaust note.
3) Go for a regular fun drive on a long
twisty road somewhere. This will enable you to get to know your car. Also you
will find out more about your driving traits and will enjoy your motoring a
4) If you boast about the car, do it
subtly one fact at a time. Never walk up to someone (who you know cannot afford
what you have) and prompt a conversation about the car you`ve got.
5) Colours. Ones not to choose: red(unless its a ferrari), yellow,
lime green, purple, gold. Very cool colours: White, grey, black, blue, dark green, arctic silver.
Thanks and see you next time
