Why British cars are so different?

Nowadays, when we talk about British cars, our brain reminds us something! There are no pure British cars are left, I mean the main brands. A quick flash back; Land Rover and Jaguar (Tata), Aston Martin (ProDrive and Kuwait Investment), Bentley (VW), Rolls Royce and Mini (BMW). So; when we see a British car, we will see something which is not British. However; this became normal in automotive industry, many brands are owned by some other brands. I don’t stick on that too much, as long as the brand’s heritage and spirit are alive, different companies can be their owners.
However; I cannot say British cars have very good reputation in reliability and offer competitive high technology. If we compare with German cars, there is a huge gap between them. Actually, there is a huge gap between German cars and whole world! The interesting thing with British brands is their spirit did not die, despite the adverse things happened to them. We still turn our heads and look at the new Jaguar XJ or we want to own a Range Rover or win lottery and experience exquisite time with a Rolls Royce Ghost. All these dreams are supplying blood to British brands. But how did this happen? Why don’t we feel the same excitement to a Mercedes S350CDi 4MATiC or to a Audi A6 2.8 Quattro or to a Toyota Avensis?
All those brands have something in common. The visibility factor; yes their quantity is too much to be exclusive. And this is the main obstacle, however Maybach is very rare but people don’t rush to it. This shows the importance of brand heritage. Italian cars have similar characteristics with British cars and they are very exclusive but they don’t bring the combination of different materials to create luxury interior, we don’t feel like we are inside a British palace. Porsche is a car to be loved but its product range is too wide for a dream. Nobody wants to dreams a cheaper car. And complicated engine range, you need to learn which engine is better than others.
I am not saying those are cars bad or inadequate to be exclusive. Those cars are more reliable, offers wide range of choice. You could live your dreams with sacrificing your future wealth. Drives very well, performance is great. Actually, most of the British cars are good for watching. Ferrari offers great technology, great sound. I would prefer Ferrari over an Aston Martin. Mercedes offers everything better than Jaguar. Porsche is the perfection. But we all look at an Aston Martin DBS, when we hear it is approaching to us. That’s something which cannot be described with words! Is it power? No, most of the Mercedes AMG models offer more power. Is it brand heritage, who can remember everything about that brand so quickly. Or is it the design? Ferrari has fantastic look also. British cars are showing our dreams in real life. If we want to buy one, other alternative might be offering a better car. However if we have chance, I am pretty sure that we would like to drive an Aston Martin or Bentley Azure for some time.

Celebrity Car Drama

When you became celebrity, you should buy expensive luxury car. And this is something normal. However in some cases, the car is facing something unnormal! They mostly modify the car, change its colour and so on.
And even they modify Bentley to make it unique. Yes, Bentley is a very common on earth! And there is two examples; Kim Kardashian changed her Bentley Continental GTC’s design into something, which I have no idea. And Paris Hilton got her Bentley (the same with Kim’s) painted in pink. Both of the cars are piece of art!
And there is one more pink coloured car. That’s from Turkey. A new pop singer Kendi, got her Range Rover Sport painted in pink and left the most undesirable wheels on earth. I mean, why didn’t she order with a better wheels :)

Like people, cars have lucky and unlucky life!

Winter Tyre UGG

UGG boots turn into fashion catastrophe, everyone from Spain to Turkey is wearing UGG. It became more popular than carrying your mobile phone with you. You can forget your mobile phone but you should not forget your polar bear boots. Exactly, it looks like that ! Some of my friends told me that Porsche Design shoes don’t look nice but there is worse than that UGG.
During winter time, every girl is getting ready for their UGG to out. Of course, (as one of my friend told me) it keeps warm, very comfortable, ideal for snow (I didn’t see that snowing for last five years) and more and more. The bottom, celebrities started to wear it, so I must wear it effect.
However while trying to walk with polar bear boots, nobody is paying attention to their winter tyres. Of couse I don’t mean have a emotional relationship with tyres. But at least, try to replace them with winter ones. The answer for this question is NO. Because, it is very expensive. This “very” is a very relative word. For “couple” UGGs expensive is not a word. I can buy pointlessly expensive UGGs many of them (they all look the same) as an investment (I will be denying them after two years) and won’t give a penny to save my life while I am driving.
OK; keep investing on your UGGs. I hope one day, they will introduce UGG winter tyres, they have serious potential ;)
And here Jessica Simpson with her UGG and Range Rover with four season tyres which are mostly rubbish at any season. And I noticed, some of the petrol might have been dropped to her coffee!
