I think the copywriters get away with this one, since it seems like they did, in fact, intend to suggest that the Gran Coupe has a "bad reputation" (mothers, lock up your daughters). They even set the black Gran Coupe against the white 7 Series to stress the "good guy/bad guy" concept.

Andre: I considered that explanation, but couldn't reconcile it with "luxurious interior complete with a Bang & Olufsen Surround Sound System."

That's fair enough, although if I've learned one thing from Daniel Craig's Bond movies, it's that you can live dangerously and still travel in luxury and style. If that's the image they're trying to project, at least there's a precedent. (For the record, though, I'd opt for the "famous" model if I had $76,000 to spare).

well, I've always contended that BMW drivers were the biggest assholes (though Audi drivers are gaining ground).

Patricia: It's not just you! See "The Asshole Theory: Are BMW Owners Assholes or Just Misunderstood?" http://cognitiveanomalies.com/the-asshole-theory-are-bmw-owners-assholes-or-just-misunderstood/

It reminds me of the classic Kenneth Williams in the Carry On films: "Infamy, infamy, they've all got it in for me". Probably not something many Americans have seen (I am British).
