Jeremy Clarkson Hates New 2012 VW Beetle – It’s not Sporty

2012 Volkswagen Beetle
The very vocal Jeremy Clarkson is up-to it again. There are many cars that this man doesn’t like, especially non-sport cars. The latest, the new 2012 Volkswagen Beetle, just irks him. Clarkson criticizes the new Beetle for not being sporty, even if VW claims that its sportier than the last Beetle. “There has never been a sporty Beetle. Not even Herbie. He wasn’t sporty. He was just speeded up.”

So what, Jeremy, so what? Not all cars can be sporty because not everyone is like you. Everything has a purpose and the Beetle will sell based on its looks. Its enhances sportiness is just icing on the cake. Sorry, but it wasn’t meant for you.
