We haven't met supercar blondie, but it's nice to speak to you. No, i suppose you're right, we haven't met um in person, but yeah it's nice to meet. You virtually tell us more about how you started yeah, so i was a journalist on the radio for a few years and i got this opportunity to drive a supercar for the very first time in my life, and i was just so happy it made me so Happy so i just started videoing my experience of driving these cars and i quit my job. I quit my regular paycheck and just went for it, and thought is this: if this is something that i can do, i i may as well just give it my all and see what happens so that's how it all started, and that was about three and a Half years ago, what about the world premiere of the ix? Well, the ix was really cool. I didn't meet you there either. I i hope that you're going to be around more often when i get to see these cars in person. I love that car. I can't wait till it actually comes out on the road because i didn't get to drive it. I just got to see it and look at all of its cool features, but only if you don't still drive like a 12 year old. What what was that do? I drive like a 12 year old. I think you drove the first time when you were 12 years old, yes, you're, absolutely correct.
Yeah. I learned to drive when i was 12., when i was on my parents, friend's property. My friend's mom taught me how to drive, but it wasn't a great experience because i actually crashed into their fence and so um. I hope i don't drive still like a 12 year old now. That would not be good. So tell me: how does acceleration feel in your stomach? It feels like you've, got a little fire burning within your stomach like everything, lights up and um you, you feel just this rush of adrenaline that throat that, like flows through your body, it doesn't matter, if i'm, in a really bad mood. As soon as i get into a car – and i and i drive fast then i'm immediately in a happy mood, are you then, in the best version of yourself i think yeah when you're happiest, then you can offer the best version of yourself to others, because when You'Re happy it, it makes the people around you happy so yeah. I suppose i could be the best version of myself when i'm, when i'm driving in a nice car, because it makes me so happy. Do you like bmw? I do, i think, it's a really reliable car and they always look great and that's one of the reasons why i bought the i8. I actually saved up for that car for a couple of years. I really and i saw it and i was like wow.
This is really something special because it had the butterfly doors and it was a hybrid and it was one of the first cars on the market that made hybrid cars, look cool, and so i really respected that um from bmw, because they they did something different and They made hybrid castle cool and i thought that was awesome, so yeah. I actually really do like bmw as a brand. How many cars do you have now um this many right now three? Yes, i have three. I have three. I actually just bought a brand new bmw. I bought the x6 m50i and i gave it to one of my employees because it's his dream car, it has been really nice talking to you, supercar blondie. It is so nice to talk to you.
