Well this thread has turned out to be an eye opener for me. Maybe I'm just a bit divorced from what the current reality is as I've been living in the countryside too long and generally avoid the City if at all possible.

I watch the news in the evening with incredulity at the vast hoards flocking to the seaside in the middle of a global pandemic, generally one or two are chosen to be interviewed. The interviewee then expresses their displeasure at the sheer volume of people having arrived and spoiled "their" day out. The irony of this completely lost on them.

This is the same problem with these supercar owners.

I didn't even realise "Karen" was a thing - I've learned that tonight having had a good read through the urban dictionary.

If you all seem to think this is quite acceptable behaviour I'll just leave you all to it to film and argue out over YouTube I guess.
Sorry but I live in one of the most idyllic villages in the Peak District - it's why I bought my house there - I also understand that folk want to visit it and I have no problem with this - provided they behave smile

We dont have any context to the video but i'm guessing the guys at his wits end with revving supercars right outside his house. We are on a motoring forum but to others cars are seen as a means to an end. To suggest someone should move out of their home because posers keep revving outside their cars is a bit far.

Regardless of the cars i do think people should be a little more understanding of others, there is a time and a place, this is clearly not it

I can't honestly see the appeal of these type of cars, they look like the back end of a bus, sometimes set on fire when revving up, only fit two people, are vulnerable to being keyed by jealous scrotes while parked up, and you can only legally go 70mph anyway, 2nd gear in one of these.

Today for instance, I went down to Wickes to pick up four pieces of twelve foot 3 x 2 in my hatchback, how would I fit that in?

No, totally useless.

This... nail on the head.

Probably best to go back to the Hatchback forum then... and no, I don’t mean that in a derogatory manner.

You don’t understand why people chime in on a forum when they have no interest in the subject / area of interest (Supercars) being discussed... i.e - the purpose of a forum.

Understand irritation but that’s just lazy racism.
Are you taking the piss, clearly was the tacky supercar photoshoot that raised the comment.
Nope. I’ve seen and experienced enough casual racism to call it out when I see it.

Assuming a coloured person driving an expensive car is a drug dealer is too frequent a racial stereotype.

My comments were made tongue in cheek biggrin

Surely you see some merit in them? £150,000 for a car you can basically just pose around in.

Isn’t the beauty of the irrational part of what elevates us as humans?

It the sensations, the vibrations, the smells, the tastes (especially in more vintage stuff), the thrill of speed that’s appealing.

Not the fact that these toys make no financial sense and are impractical.

Are these the same cars that some village in Essex is moaning at doing photo shoots and drive bys.
Funny how up in the Midlands cruising is banned yet down in London you get away with it.

Spot on. The old chap knew exactly what he meant when he said that, be it in the heat of the moment and it total frustration. I don't know the full context but neither side covered themselves in glory judging from the video (not there is any glory up for grabs).

Lol at the “peasant” comment from the lass.

Have had the unfortunate pleasure of having the black sparkly lambo drive behind me last week, unnecessarily aggressive driving.

God I live a sheltered life. Had google Karen, I had never heard that before.

Funny old world.

This just shows how tired and played out the whole supercar in London cliché actually is. It's been a boring stereotype for a number of years. Now it's just tiresome.

I think thats missing the point slightly, these guys aren't respecting others, it doesn't matter where in the world you are having a flash car and a big watch doesn't make you more important than anyone else
...erm it does, of course it does!

Maybe not....no really, I am joking.....

If you say so... Or more likely he was pissed off and it was a generic derogatory comment, regardless of race. People far too quick to pull the racism card with no evidence these days.

It's like a cringe fest in that video, it's what 18 year old kids do in a Vauxhall Corsa driving up and down the High Rd.
Naffness personified.

You have tried to do 2+2 and ended up with 47.

My point is this grumpy bloke could have just tolerated a bit of noise for 20 or 30 minutes and they'd have been on their way. Instead, he runs down the road like a Loony at what, 8pm because some cars were revving for a short while.

But now, I suspect many people will go to this street now just to wind the poor bloke up.
You've seen one clip. It's more than likely he gets this behaviour multiple times a day/week and I can understand the annoyance.
Just because something is legal doesn't mean you should do it, it's called courtesy
