There are plenty of automotive cliches that are constantly thrown around, be it in simple conversation with your mechanic, or by full blown auto journos. Whether you are describing the lines of the car (a woman in a tight dress) or the feel of the gearbox (a rifle bolt), there always seems to be a perfect comparison waiting to be uttered.
My personal favorite, and the cliche that makes the largest claim, is that a vehicle is "a race car for the road". There are many companies that make what they believe fits the bill.
Which would you take home if money was no object?
