I was just watching a recent episode of Top Gear and Richard Hammond was talking about how Ferrari and Lamborghini basically only exist these days to sell hats and keychains.

I dunno, that's going a bit far, isn't it?  "Hey guys, I think we should spend millions of dollars and take up years of time of the world's most brilliant engineers to create a new supercar that pushes the already insane limits of what we would ever have imagine in our wildest dreams... because it will sell thousands of keychains and hats made in China!  Think of the profit margin on a $0.05 trinket manufactured in China!  It's totally worth it."

Compared to the margin on a [model name goes here], in percentage terms, the trinkets are a much better business proposition.  The wannabe douchebags will buy enough cologne and keychains and hats and stickers and jackets to make the rest of the effort compare favorably with what Ralph Lauren spends promoting his crap, PLUS the big douchenozzles will happily buy all the compensatormobiles you can build.  It's a pretty nice business plan.

So someone bottled the essence of Brut, smegma, and Zima in a bottle? Aren't there international laws against this kind of chemical warfare?.

If it's a Lamborghini or Venture Industries jumpsuit, it is, by definition, a speed suit.

Top Gear is for the hipsters of the car world.
"Lamborghini and Ferrari are too mainstream for my tastes. I prefer an Ariel Atom or Bugatti Veyron. Oh, never heard of them? Of course you haven't".

Heh. You are correct. Though in this case Hammond made the comment referring to the "innocence" of the Pagani Huayra.

Hamster then went on to remark on how proud the Hiltons must be that their daughter Paris is still a virgin.
