I love cars. I love driving them, I love reading about them, I think that they are one of the most impressive things in the modern age. What I don’t like are the marketing tossers who work for car companies who are mostly stupid, or liars, or both.
Today it’s BMW who’ve pissed me off as they are claiming that their new X6 is the world’s first 4WD coupe. Just one small problem with that, they’re completely and utterly wrong. In fact back in the mid 80s, over twenty years ago, Subaru sold a 4WD coupe in Australia called the Vortex and they’ve sold a succession of 4WD coupes ever since.
The BMW marketing droids deserve a slap in the face for peddling such nonsense and Automotive writers who slavishly accept car companies word as gospel so that they can keep their seat on the gravy train need to be slapped twice as hard.
