It's funny, but real sports cars don't bother (thinking Lotus, Caterham etc). Although they might have a removeable wheel. It's more marketing BS, like having an unpleasantly crashy ride on pointlessly large wheels is "sporty"
Those oversized wheels and crashy ride, so beloved of those willing to pay more than the worth, and for the sake of appearance.
It's strange how I see so many of these prestige cars, on transporters, toodling along the C32 in Catalunya, up towards France and the rest of Europe.
A more jaundiced opinion than mine may think they are all produced in the same factory in Zaragoza, the one SEAT cars come from.
