Speaking to the press, the Canadian schoolboy claimed that the decision was made after he realised an increasing proportion of his days were being taken up by pointing at every sports car that drove past.
“It was just getting ridiculous,” said Peninsular. “Any old Ferrari or Corvette or whatever would get a point and one of my looks of dumbfounded amazement.”
Under the new arrangement, Peninsular will continue to point and stare at most of the latest models from the likes of Aston Martin, Bentley, Lamborghini and Ferrari, but will ignore cars such as the Ferrari 458 Italia and Lamborghini Gallardo, which both fall under the $250,000 threshold. The move also rules out all models of Maserati and Porsche.
“It’s going to be hard, as I really love pointing and staring at Maseratis as they go by. But it’s just a necessity for the time being,” he said.
As part of an additional clause to his new policy, Peninsular issued a new restriction to the cars he would choose to pose next to for a photograph. From January 10, only “real top-tier motors, such as the Lamborghini Murcielago, Bugatti Veyron and Aston Martin DBS will be considered”, he added.
