drives the SUV design. The whole idea was to make the SUV big and
intimidating. Even design cues, like the drop fender design of the Dodge Ram pickup or the
Durango front grill was designed to mimic the look of predators. "A strong animal has a big jaw,
that's why we put big fenders, 'Rapaille says." Even a more primitive or perhaps savage is yet
another unspoken rationale for owning an SUV. "My theory is the reptilian always wins,' he
said, 'If there's a crash, I want the other guy to die. Of course, I can't say that aloud." Hence, the
rationale for owning an SUV, and willingness to put others at risk rather than themselves in a
crash situation. Again, questioning the rules of moral behavior. "For Rapaille, the archetype of a
sport utility vehicle reflects the reptilian desire for survival. People buy SUVs, he tells auto
executives, because they are trying to look as menacing as possible to allay their fears of crime
and other violence. The Jeep has always had this image around the world because of it its heavy
use in war movies and frequent appearances in newsreels from the 1940's and 1950's, and
newer SUVs share the image."

Q-cars are nothing new. While they’re more popular than ever in the 21st century, the trend started several decades ago – and the Sunbeam Tiger is proof.

Change the steering box for a rack to improve precision, add a tougher Salisbury rear axle along with a Panhard rod to the rear suspension to help keep the thing on the tarmac – and voilà, a cut-price Cobra…

1. In his paper “Experienced Utility and Objective Happiness: A Moment-Based Approach”, Daniel Kahneman analyses the concept of experienced utility and proposes that it can be most effectively measured by “moment-based methods that assess the experiences of the present” (2). First proposed by Bentham (1789), experienced utility refers to the experiences of pleasure and pain. Moment-based approaches derive these feelings of pain and pleasure from real-time measures. Extrapolating from this,…
