Clarkson has had a Ferrari 355, a Lambo Gallardo Spyder, a Ford GT and currently has a Merc CLK Black amoungst others, so I wouldn't say his POV is out of alignment with supercar buyers. Also, if the news segments are anything to go by (grain of salt and all that) he does actually drive his cars around.

The average supercar buyer already has a practical car or two, so the idea that their choice of supercar might be something irrational or silly isn't too far fetched. Many do go for absolute [on paper] performance, true.. but in truth, that in itself is somewhat irrational unless you actually go to racetracks and drive it properly.
Life's too short to drive bad cars.
