Bono Hopefully Inspires Automakers, Auto Erotics

By Kiran Aditham 

Take some advice from Bono, and we’re talking to you Chrysler, GM and any other automaker seeking a comeback. Instead of your nostalgic meddling, let the U2 frontman and New York Times columnist tell you why automobiles need to return to being “a sexual object”. We’re not sure if he’s alluding to backseat loving or muffler humping, but the shades-loving singer/songwriter talks about aerodynamics, sex appeal and uh, “style facsists”. An excerpt por vous:

“That’s why the Obama administration–while it still holds the keys to the big automakers–ought to put some style fascists into the mix: the genius of Marc Newson…Steve Jobs and Jonny Ive from Apple…Frank Gehry, the architect, and Jeff Koons, the artist. Put the great industrial designers in the front seat, right along with sound financial stewardship…the greener, the cleaner, the meaner on fossil fuels, the sexier for me. Check out the Tesla or the Fisker Karma car, designed by the same team that gave the world the Aston Martin.”
