Insider's Picks: 5 Road Raiders for Your Closet
Here’s what we imagine the men and women behind the wheels of the top performance cars of 2013 would wear as they hit the roads in their sweet new speedsters
The distinguished yet youthful Aston Martin Vanquish, one of our firm favorites for 2013
You may remember the popular piece we did listing our pick of the top five performance cars from this year's motor shows. Cars need drivers, so naturally that got us thinking about what breed of privileged lady or gent would be seen behind the wheels of these hypercars, and what (or "who", as they say in fashion-speak) they would be wearing.
Make no mistake, these vehicles transcend transportation. With speed and style prized in equal measure, we suspect anyone driving say, an Aventador would also give as much punctilious deliberation to the precise draping of their Charvet cravats and Giambattista Valli velvets. Think Lapo Elkann or even the imperious Cayetana Fitz-James Stuart, the 18th Duchess of Alba...oh, imagine the joy to be had playing stylist to these lovely individuals!
The cars on our list have distinct personalities, so we imagine their owners to dress accordingly, too. The owner of the lithe, understated but powerful Aston Martin Vanquish for instance, might dress much like the Duchess of Cambridge would—classic with a dash of daring. Click through the slides for a dash through the top roadsters we picked for next year and why they deserved to be on the list, as well as what we think the people driving these cars would don on their respective joyrides.
