Tom Ford erläutert das Prinzip des Autokaufs in der TopGear 11-2009 treffend:

„… It boils down to this: you either buy a car because you want to inhabit it, engage it, have it become part of your life. Or you buy a car that covers the bases most efficiently.“

(TopGear, November 2009, „Beauty & the beast“ by Tom Ford, p. 122-128)
