What is the purpose of an undrivable car

A society that puts equality before freedom will get neither. A society that puts freedom before equality will get a high degree of both.

Actually, believe it or not, most of the cars in the picture are daily driven and what's more impressive is that they refuse to use air suspension in the beginning to prove a point.

Enough of these bent ass wheels already! They look ugly! (IMO)

The only good thing about living in England is that Top Gear gets aired here first and that's all!

Daily or not, when you have to drive at angle to enter a ramp you still look like an idiot. Knowing they probably paid out the ass for those ridiculously huge wheels doesn't help the cause either. Not my cup of tea.
