It’s one thing suggesting your cars are the best on the market, but it’s a brave company to openly poke a rival manufacturer with a big stick.
They’ve also misquoted the oft-misquoted first line of the German national anthem: “Deutschland Deutschland Über-Rated” (the original line has long been dropped from the official anthem).
Last week, Nissan took an Audi TTS to London blazoned with the words: “More expensive, slower and less powerful than a Nissan 370Z.” It was joined by a Porsche Cayman with “I dream of being as fast as a Nissan 370Z” plastered on the side.
Could it be unwise to mock the German sports car establishment? Looking forward to seeing the response.
