We live in an age where you can order a full-luxury Tesla Model S electric car and expect it to go toe to toe with a sportscar in a straight line. Mercedes and Porsche also have their own plug-in hybrids, which turn into EVs for short trips. So why, for the love of God, does Becks drive a prius?

You could be forgiven for thinking that David wants to see what it's like to live as a boring California family man or simply wants to access the carpool lane until his Tesla is delivered.

It's not like he's strapped for cash either. His advertising deals and the now famous man's underwear collection he's made probably earn him a full Manchester United salary without his feet ever having to touch a ball ever again.

To make you guys understand why we're making a big deal out of the Prius, let us remind you that Beckham has owned a Porsche 911 Turbo, a few Ferraris, a Rolls Drophead, more SUVs than we can name, a Continental GT,a Camaro and some probably half a dozen others. If he live the Prius, let him live out the family man dream.

Mihnea's favorite cars have already been built, the so-called modern classics from the '80s and '90s. He also loves local car culture from all over the world, so don't be surprised to see him getting excited about weird Japanese imports, low-rider VWs out of Germany, replicas from Russia or LS swaps down in Florida.
