Illustration for article titled Whats The Dumbest Thing Someone Prominent In Motoring Has Said?

We're currently riding an eye-rolling wave of old men saying terrible things and catching shit for it — there's Donald Sterling, of course, and there may be Clarkson joining him even if he's innocent this time — but who else in motoring has really said something stupid?


Stirling Moss, is, of course, a good candidate, with his inane comments about how "a lady" lacks the "aptitude" to compete in a Formula 1 race, but I'm sure there's plenty more. Think about what John DeLorean must have said about how fantastic a cocaine sideline would be, or maybe the guy in Pontaic's design studio in the '90s who must have said something about how much people love corrugated plastic shit on their cars.

This should be a nice combination of funny and a total loss of faith in humankind. Have at it!
