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!







..only joking.....

Maybe not....no really, I am joking.....
very good! probably a little philosophical for a motoring forum!

That's done it, I'm officially old.

Lamborghinis in London are ridiculous and I sympathise with the homeowner.

I love the sound of a howling V12 but not in my back yard, thanks.

Comes back to my question - if you saw these guys blatting around rural A roads would you think it was OK?

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.
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.
Yep I do say so.

feel free to pull the PC card that most racists like to rely on nowadays because they don’t like being able to get away with “a bit of banter”.

I think people who claim it's about money are wide of the mark. People live and work in a place and don't want their quality of life reduced by others constantly using neighbourhoods for noisy photoshoots, filming locations or racetracks.

Wrapping it up as jealousy is gloriously lacking in awareness.

Yeah same as if the local kids are sitting in your road in their Corsa’s.

PC card? I'm not racist nor did I indicate it was "a bit of banter". It's just tiring to see people cry racism when it could be for a multitude of other reasons...

Agreed, any house on that road is worth many multiples of the cars and undoubtedly some of those single mews garages have extremely valuable classics tucked away in them..

Within limitations, yes. This is PH after all and we have to stretch the legs somewhere.

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.
Not a super car but you can arguable get more 12 foot planks in a convertible than you can in most cars.

The old chap running after them... is the f*cking bellend fullstop.
People going out for a drive during lockdown in the summer in their Lambos i'd call call that enjoying your youth.
As for the drug dealer comment definitely a male "karen" comment lol. I am so angry watching that confrontation; if he had approached me in this aggressive manner I think the police would have got called 100% the young chap did fantastically well to stay calm.
I think I would have been minded to go back round and rev the nuts off just to piss the old chap even more. D*ckhead.
They pay their road tax and can drive on the public road and do whatever they like same as anyone else they were not over-revving their engines whilst in the residential lane.
Jealousy has no bounds and as I see racism is definitely alive and well. Sad but hey rule Britannia, right?

And what if the old fella in the video lived in the countryside and chased them down the road? He’d say super cars shouldn’t be in the countryside - there’s plenty of those types out there I think we all know that. So it’s not a mews vs Lambo question It’s bigger picture IMO.

I’d suggest that the old chap comes across as not being quite all there so could probably forgive his attitude. I would also say that the passenger in the car comes across as a pretty decent guy insofar as he is trying to de-escalate the situation and leave in a fairly polite manner

Don’t know the back-story and we only see what the you-tuber want us to know given that he has edited the video.

We used to get a few exotics parked below us on a regular basis due to a popular cafe. Always used to open the windows and get the kids to have a look. People walking past after midnight drunk and being antisocial would p!ss me off much more than a glorious v12.

Meh, I don't understand the appeal.
Wish they'd come and do that for ten mins outside my house. Beautiful sight imo. Not every day but now and again would be great.

Yes but on an A road they won’t be in the same place for very long and also the sound wouldn’t be bouncing off your house wall. There are always going to be old folk annoyed at young people being irresponsible, I’m just in the process of moving from one group to the other.

Bloody kids! hehe
