Almost every family comes with individuals who are just a little bit different. No one is ever sure if they are actually related to the family but they might show up unannounced once in a blue moon and when they do, they very often make a complete mess of things. This family dynamic also occurs within the car culture. We’re never quite sure where these cars came from. But just like clockwork, they arrive with no sort of advance notice and they never fail to make their manufacturer squirm just a little bit in their seats.
Forget the absurd power figures and never mind the astronomical price – this car’s name alone tells people to start running the other way. We’re presented with a classic case of “what one lacks in depth he makes up in length” as there are enough words in its designation to name an entire model range. Imagine telling someone at a dinner party that you just purchased a “BMW X6 M Hamann Tycoon Evo M.” Not even a non-chalant Daniel Craig wearing a unicorn leather tuxedo could make that sound smooth.
Dual triangulated exhaust tips, bling 30″ wheels and red paint: the “Oh Dear, Why!?” factor is pretty high on this one, as it’s not only difficult to look at but also designed by a sculptor and made with foam. Seriously, that’s one off-the-charts idea. It pains me to announce that this artist made two of these but luckily the other victim carried the three-pointed star from Stuttgart on the bonnet.
Just in case you weren’t already aware of the fact that three-wheeled machines simply don’t work, Top Gear went out and proved it for the world to see. This rule counts for both variations – one wheel in the rear (Morgan 3 Wheeler) and one wheel in the front (Reliant Robin), the latter which crashed every time it was asked to tackle anything more dramatic than a lane change. To go ahead and make (or photoshop) a three-wheeler out of a (hopefully) defunct Z8 is the worst thing that’s happened to a Z8 since one was cut in half in ‘The World is Not Enough.’ It’s offensive to everyone from the engineers to the car community in general. If anything, park the drop dead gorgeous Z8 in your living room and call it a day.
Fanta is delicious. The BMW E32 7 Series is a classic. But some things just shouldn’t be combined. Like drinking and driving or dropping a huge Fanta bottle on an almost vintage BMW 7 Series. This BMW was likely bought from a Belgium scrap yard, touched up a bit with sledgehammers and eventually paraded around dense cities in Western Europe. However, what pains me the most is that this particular dark blue 7 Series, likely a 740iL, would of made one classy ride.
This would officially be the WORST car to come across when you’re playing “guess that car” on a road trip. “It’s a Mustang, no a Nissan, no a BMW, no wait it’s a Ford – or is it!?” It’s certainly different … Many E30 BMW’s are modified for rallying, racing and drifting with all of them serving a specific purpose and reliving a glorious second youth on racetracks around the world. This E30 BMW, however, has been modified for posing and that, no matter what the visual outcome, is just wrong. Use it or lose it. There’s no middle ground.
