Motor Men: Patrice Evra & Nani, Manchester United

It’s clash of classic expensive cars, Kickettes, and this go ’round we’re not asking which of the two you prefer. Rather, we’re intrigued to see if our readers would even consider putting a chavtastic cup of tea in either of their cupholders. Let us explain:

Last week, Patrice Evra was spotted outside the ever-popular Wing’s restaurant in Manchester, hopping into his “here’s comes trouble, homey” wannabe Batmobile/DeLorean/he-couldn’t-make-up-his-cinematically-adventurous-mind Mercedes. With rims that sit high and windows tinted pitch black, T.I. must be shedding a tear of pride in a jail cell somewhere. Failing to observe the parking ticket on his intergalactic windshield, the law ain’t nothin’ but a G-thang in his pint-sized world.

Squaring off against Evra is his teammate of questionable form, Nani. Seen pumping petrol into his pristine Lamborghini this past weekend, this looks like a car that one can get white girl schwasted in. And, afterwards, he’d be a gentleman (of course) and crack the vertical doors at a cool 45 degree angle so we don’t ruin the pebble leather during our in-ride yak session. Ya know, he’d have our backs like that.

So yes, back to the real situation at hand: would any of your sky-high stilettos dare to step foot in either of these flash cars? Do tell, Kickettes, and certainly don’t be shy.

    I wouldn't take either of the guys, but I'd love a ride in the Lambo, just to say I'd ridden in one. Can I get another baller to borrow Nani's car and take me for a spin? I have a list of boys I'd be seen with. I'm not TERRIBLY particular; but neither Nani nor Evra is on my list.

  2. aps says:

    I would feel very claustrophobic in those cars. I hate two door cars.

  3. FloraJane says:

    Ooh fellow Top Gear fans! Evra's Mercedes SLS is beautiful but as soon as I saw it I thought of Jeremy Clarkson's comments on it. He drove it recently and proclaimed to love it more than his own dog but that driving it was tough because real gear heads know that rather than impressing people it makes you look like a c*ck! LOL Richard Hammond would no doubt prefer a Porsche- any Porsche- and James May would choose something classier, like a Ferrari, Alfa Romeo, or a classic Rolls. Or better yet, he'd just drive his beloved Fiat Panda! And I'd rather ride with James in his Panda any day!

  4. Johnny says:

    Ok im a bloke and yes there is a hint of jealousy i guess but for Evra please note: Parking ticket on left, cars parked nearby so he cannot even open his door to get in the car, i mean honestly now some things are just useless :)

  5. C16 says:

    LOL. Noooo! Super expensive cars but not my thing
    I'm more like an Audi kind of girl. Keep it classy.
    Even a nice SUV does it,

  6. Megan says:

    Yes, Yes, Yes. Nani can knock on my door anytime for a spin

  7. AKA says:

    Generally I hate Mercedes and quite like Lamborghinis, but….. nnngnh gullwing doors. Patrice wins this one.

  8. LoseThatGirl says:

    I don't drive so I'd be more than content to let Nani and/or Patrice take me for a spin.

  9. LuvinBale says:

    I would definitely drive the Mercedes AMG, 563 horse power, zero to 60 in 3.6 seconds and top speed 197mph. And I would be the one driving- driving away really fast and waving goodbye. Patrice would never see that car again.

  10. nath says:

    why is the number plate of patrice evras car luxemburgish? that's somehow weird, but since I am from Luxembourg somehow cool;)

  11. Anita says:

    i would definately step in those cars!! Mercedes is just soo classy and the Lamborghini is pure speed!! ;)

  12. Jo_ says:

    As long as I got to drive, either car would be worth a spin. Probably not keepers for me, though. Love the Top Gear appreciation! :D Could I have Hammond as my navigator?

  13. Taskeen says:

    "the law ain't nothin' but a g-thang in his pint -sized world"- oh you will never know how much i laughed after reading this post!
    Mys sister and I have dubbed these MLC (mid-life crisis) cars coz where we live its usually waaAy older men who drive them lol but i honestly wouldn't mind the merc

  14. Lashes says:

    Honestly I'm also more of an Audi, BMW kind of girl but in this case I'll go for the Mercedes, after all it's German.
    In either car I'll do the driving, wouldn't dare be driving around be one of them (or most ballers anyway). Just kick off the Louboutins and drive barefoot

  15. tjotja Malinka says:

    neither one of the cars would do it for me. I'm an Audi, BMW kind of girl.
    I know it wasn't the question but I would take Patrice Evra anytime.

  16. Bri says:

    "I'll wait for Jeremy Clarkson to tell me which one first (although I suspect he already has)."

    LOL love you!

    I have a feeling the boys in the studio might go with the merc, they seemed to like it last time it was on the show and I bet it handles a bit better than the lamborghini.

    • Leya_S says:

      I think Jeremy would go for the Benz, Richard might go for the Lambo, and James would, of course, choose the Dacia Sandero, haha!

      • Bri says:

        Haha the Dacia! I agree that Richard might go for the Lambo as he is a silly little thing…but god forbid there is a Porsche 911 around…

    • @DebStimson says:

      got a laugh out of you calling it a "merc". That's a nickname for "Mercury" where I'm from. All I could picture was the 1974 Mercury Marquis Brougham http://www.mercuryarchive.com/1973to1978/1974Merc… that my brother drove in high school. Now this would definitely fit the T.I. reference

      I'd go with the Benz too :)

  17. Both cars are pretty sexy, but me being a klutz, , those bat wing doors on Patrice's Batmobile are just a trip to Maaco waiting to happen. So, no to that one. The white Lambo would suit me fine though. As long as Nani isn't in the driver's seat (sorry Nani).

  18. Missy Manchester says:

    Oh yeah…the question…

    Would I be caught dead in either of these cars?

    Definitely not now. And even in my younger years…I'd probably stay away from them too. (I'm a straight Mercedes, Volvo SUV kind of girl. Don't much care for car bling. Money should be spent on Louboutins and D &G …not rims and tints.)

    • CarmenOcio says:

      I second that

    • GiGi6982 says:

      Yay another Volvo kind of fan! (there are not enough fans where I am from)

    • Leya_S says:

      I agree with you, BUT….

      can you just imagine the crowd parting as a fantastic lamborghini pulls to a stop and the doors open up and a silky smooth leg clad in a gorgeous Louboutin steps onto the pavement and a perfectly manicured hand pokes out as the valet takes it in awe and assists a stunning woman in a killer D&G dress out of the car….??

      I'm all for marrying my fantasies into one, haha.
      Oh, and Nani can come, too!

  19. Leya_S says:

    I don't know, I'll wait for Jeremy Clarkson to tell me which one first (although I suspect he already has).

    Side note: My dream car is a Fisker Karma…google it…its the SEXIEST hybrid you've EVER seen….

  20. Missy Manchester says:

    I thought Sir Alex banned his players from driving anything but their Audis to/from Carrington. If so…what's Nani doing in his MUFC tracksuit gassing up???

    I'm telling SAF. LOL
