      That thing looks awkward. Shooting brakes are cool... Just not that one. I'm sure the car itself is a riot though

      holy crap, Callaway (Sr.) pronounces it "Bee-Turbo" when referring to the '80s Maserati but interesting Alfa backstory on the first Twin Turbo 'Vettes...

      True my first glance at it was enough for me to come to the conclusion "forget it, I'm not going to waste 1 second of my time viewing this."
      I'm a 1 percenter, who actually uses turn signals over 99% of the time for lane changes and turns too, even on my motorcycle

      Interesting... they spell it Aerowagen, not Aerowagon.

      It also doesn't really seem to add that much space.

      The only thing more awkward to me than that appendage tacked on thingy on the back of that C7 is seeing old man Callaway in flip flops with a suit. I don't get either one.

      That seems like a lot of work to get the rear glass lifted a few inches.

      He's not wrong though. When feasible, I try to pronounce foreign car names using the appropriate accent and pronunciation for the language intended. All those Most modern Lamborghini cars are actually named after famous Spanish bulls, so they get pronounced the way a Spaniard would say them. In Italian, it's not "Bye-Turbo", it's "Bee-Turbo" as in bistecca (steak) or bicicletta (bicycle).

      Same with French cars. It's not pronounced "Two-See-Vee", it's "deux chevaux".
