There’s a secret cultural revolution going on in California, but it’s not the kind that paralyzed China in the 1960s and 1970s; this is the discreet uprising of China’s 21st century elite.
These youngsters are the offspring of the New Rich in China who are enjoying the best of what the West has to offer, in what they believe to be a non-offensive manner, since showing off your wealth is supposedly still frowned upon in China, or at least it is by the government.
So, what do they do? Well, they organize secret meetings where they can inconspicuously flaunt their super-exotic and luxury rides, clothing and whatever else it is that these young millionaires feel the need to share with their wealthy peers.
Vocativ went down to Southern California and participated in one of these secret meet-ups and talked to several 20-something year old owners of Lamborghinis, Bentleys and Maseratis.
“I have three Ferraris, this is my newest one,” said one of the youngsters. “Why did you pick this car?” asked the reporter. “I just study in California…and this car’s name is California. Very romantic…” replied the man.
Another young lady seen driving a Maserati coupe, said she didn’t drive it to school as she had an Audi for that…
Well, it could be worse; just look at the RichKidsNaps.
