Danica Patrick likes to drive. With that in mind, auto racing was probably an appropriate career choice. However, she is also a practical person. Like any other NASCAR driver, she has had several toys over the course of her career. Among them is a silver 2007 Lamborghini Gallardo — one that she rarely drives. The thing has no cup holders and she’s a coffee drinker. Can you blame her?
“I just needed something more practical,” Patrick said according to Yahoo! Sports. “It sounds stupid but there are no cup holders in my Lamborghini. So what’s a girl to do?”
Holding a hot cup of coffee in your hand is too dangerous. The lack of cup holders isn’t the only issue, however. The car also has very limited trunk space. What a piece of crap this thing must be.
“The last straw was probably having to pick up my sister at the airport in a Lamborghini,” she added. “I couldn’t have felt more stupid. I’m serious. I felt so stupid. She’s got bags. I don’t have a trunk. I’ve got a briefcase-sized spot in the front of the car. I have no space.”
Sometimes speed isn’t everything. Believe it or not, NASCAR drivers need cargo space and cup holders too. Here’s hoping Danica finds a car that will improve her quality of life.Google+
