BOY racers have confirmed that they drive fairly old hatchbacks because they prefer them to supercars.
Young male car enthusiasts believe that with the right handling a mid-00s Nissan Micra or Fiat Uno can deliver just as much punch as a Lamborghini.
Plumbing student Tom Booker said: “People assume that I drive a 2001 Fiesta because it’s the cheapest car that you can buy a spoiler for. Actually though I prefer its solid, noble looks to those of ugly Italian sports cars which I could probably afford if I really wanted one.
“I don’t need a Porsche Spyder to overtake people, I can do that by ignoring the speed limits in 30mph zones.”
Sales administrator Roy Hobbs said: “A McLaren P1 might be nice, but £800,000 is a lot of money when my Honda Civic is perfectly good for doing handbrake turns in empty car parks.
“Also I listen to deafening dubstep all the time which makes all driving exciting, even if you’re just going to get some bread for your mum.
“I have wondered why I don’t meet any women like the ones in the Fast and Furious films, but I probably just need to practise my wheelspins.”
