If you’re like me, you’re not happy that the Eagles squandered their position in the fourth quarter of Super Bowl LVII. Being the fair-weather fan that I am, my pride is such that I have no trouble writing about Patrick Mahomes and his car collection. As a 27-year-old guy, his tastes run more nouveau riche than retro (the latter would make his collection more interesting to many of us in the office) but, to be clear, that’s not a back-handed comment — it’s just the reality of today’s flash.
Here’s what we can gather:
2019 Genesis G70: This car is so regular, but not everyone needs a Rolls to get milk from the Circle-K. The truth is that Mahomes received this sedan as part of winning the Pro Bowl MVP. I imagine it’s pimped out with wheels and other horrible things that people do to their cars, but I haven’t borne witness to Mahomes’ Genesis so I don’t want to come out all judgy.
2017 Infiniti Q60 Sport: I imagine this was a purchase when he was fresh out of school and was newly flush with cash, but who knows? Not us. The Infiniti is another regular car for mortals like you and me, a coupe that does the Bimmer thing the Japanese way. This is somewhat the kind of car you ditch once you find out you’re getting a gazillion dollars after signing your contract.
2020 Rolls-Royce Cullinan: In case you didn’t know, this SUV was named after Cullinan Diamond, the largest gem-quality rough diamond ever discovered. And in case you didn’t know, the Cullinan is Rolls-Royce’s ugliest vehicle, a top-heavy carriage that subjects its owners to the indignity of looking like a $325,000+ London taxi with a pituitary issue. Apparently this one’s pimped out with 26-inch wheels.
2020 Ferrari 812 Superfast: They say a mid-engine configuration is the best for sports cars, but one can’t help but be impressed by Ferrari’s front-engined V12 models. They’re always more expensive and rarer than other, lesser Ferraris, but knowing the 812 can trace its lineage to the 365GTB/4 “Daytona” is never a bad thing. However, if you enjoy shifting for yourself, then consider yourself disappointed in learning that a Getrag seven-speed dual-clutch automatic is the only game in town. At a price point similar to the aforementioned Cullinan, the decision would be easy if we had to pick one.
Lamborghini Urus: These are surprisingly cool and, to my eyes and mind, make a much better urban assault vehicle than the Cullinan. It also costs much less, which means you can buy one of the fancier Porsches with the money left over. While the idea of a Lamborghini SUV is even more offensive than the idea of a Lincoln SUV (remember that?), using Lamborghini’s competencies for another type of vehicle is something that piques my interest. Plus, we must remember there was precedent, as Lamborghini produced the LM002 several decades ago.
