It is the attitude we are striving towards
The other day I went to Wheel Warehouse to get some new TSW rims [Neptune bronze rotary forged] for the Ford Fusion (Rotary Forged, thanks to John Narcisco my brother in law). And I saw this sweet new McLaren:
As I was gawking over the car, I always wondered —
Who is the owner of this car, and how did they become so rich and afford it?
And then I realized —
The car is always impressive, the owner … much less so.
Which made me realize —
When it comes to totems of power and masculinity (hyper sports cars), it is the *ATTITUDE* we are trying to harness, not the thing in itself.
For example, if you want a Porsche 911 turbo, you want to signal your German-design aesthetics, your ‘classiness’, and yet your more subdued masculinity. For a Lamborghini the ultimate flex (scissor doors) to flex your attitude being like a ‘I don’t give a fuck’ raging bull. McLaren as someone more exotic, and different, etc.
