Who doesn’t love a good quote? And if they’re about cars, even better! Take a look at our favourite car quotes from Jeremy Clarkson and Michael Schumacher, to name but a few.

  1. “No, no, no. There's no such thing as cheap and cheerful. It's cheap and nasty & expensive and cheerful.” – Jeremy Clarkson

We’ve got to agree with him. Why? Well, you know how the saying goes: buy cheap, buy twice. And that’s certainly the case with cars! If you buy a cheap car, you can’t expect it to be up to the same standard as a flashy car that’s worth an arm and a leg!

  1. “To come across as younger than they are: Women buy creams that promise to slow aging; men buy fast cars.”  - Mokokoma Mokhonoana

This one made us smile. What do you reckon? It doesn’t sound like a bad theory, does it?

  1. “Why do they call it rush hour when nothing moves?” - Robin Williams

The late Robin Williams had a point; why is it called rush hour when we’re sat in standstill traffic? Think of this one-liner next time you’re bumper to bumper and it’ll no doubt lighten the mood amid heavy traffic.

4. “I couldn't find the sports car of my dreams, so I built it myself.” - Ferdinand Porsche

Now that’s impressive. If only we could all construct our own dream cars! Ferdinand Porsche is certainly an inspiration, hats off to him!


  1. “If GM had kept up with technology like the computer industry has, we would all be driving $25 cars that got 1000 MPG.” - Bill Gates

Interesting thought there Bill Gates…let’s ponder that for a while!

  1. “The reason American cars don’t sell anymore is that they have forgotten how to design the American Dream. What does it matter if you buy a car today or six months from now, because cars are not beautiful. That’s why the American auto industry is in trouble: no design, no desire.” – Karl Lagerfeld.

Karl Lagerfeld doesn’t beat around the bush, does he? And we can’t argue with the iconic fashion designer, he does have an eye for detail after all.

  1. “Just being a mediocre driver has never been my ambition. That's not my style” - Michael Schumacher

Talk about dreaming big! And he certainly went for it, didn’t he? Schumacher may be retired now, but the German racing driver is still regarded as one of the greatest Formula One drivers of all time.
