A decade ago, my craze for BMW cars was evident. I genuinely believed that if there was any car that needed space in my garage, it was a BMW M3 GTR. (Only 10 ever made in the world)
The above pic was that moment when I first set my eyes and my hands on a real BMW. The feeling of exhilaration I felt at that blessed moment cannot be expressed in words. Although I don’t own it, the bond was instant.
Until then, the only BMWs I had ever seen were in movies and video games. And of all the collection, the Need For Speed Most Wanted (2005) is an epic game which carried a fantastic storyline that made the M3 a character in itself.
The actual BMW in the game!!!
Then, the ‘Sequel Syndrome’ hit this game’s storyline and we all know what happened.
The game starts with Razor and his followers messing with the Hero’s (gamer) BMW M3, cheating a victory, stealing his car and then fabricating a lie. The story then proceeds with the gamer starting from scratch, taking down all the Blacklist members to reach Razor, who now had rocketed to the top number 1 using the Hero’s own BMW. The whole purpose of this game was that BMW car. It was the story itself.
Razor pretending he knows everything!!!
In Razor’s bio in the above pic, the last line says –
“Remember, you can’t trust anything he says.”
That was not only a clue in the game but also a revealing truth of the real world if one had to take it metaphorically.
All you have to do is imagine the BMW M3 GTR as the metaphorical equivalent of the Holy Grail, or the Ark of the Covenant, or even the God’s Eye. Then you would perceive the same story in a whole new spiritual light.
