It's difficult to shake the feeling that Peter Stringfellow's career as a lap-dancing tycoon and all-round lothario is in some way related to a burdensome surname that rather suggests he's not quite the man he would have many believe.
Yes, the owner of London's first fully-nude 'gentleman's club' does rather hold himself up to ridicule, not only by sporting hair cuts that have seemingly inspired the world's mop designers over the years, but also by making himself near impossible to Google without risking a swift visit from HR.
But you know what? That stops right here - because in low carbon terms, the man's a bit of a legend.
For Pete has secretly been squeezing barely-clad ladies into a 30mph electric Maranello, rather than the gas-guzzling Porsche Carrera he's famous for.
"The Carrera comes out at night - it does its two miles to the club - and then comes back again, that's it! It's part of the publicity machine; part of the image that goes with the club," he told theChargingPoint.com earlier this year.
"[People say] what's Peter Stringfellow, supersonic nightclub owner doing getting out of a little electric car?! It's fine, people actually like it. And I have black windows as well so you can't see who's driving it anyway, but when I park and get out people very nearly give me a round of applause!"
Stringy, as we like to call him, enthuses about the mileage and cheap parking before revealing his next purchase: a Mitsubishi iMiEV.
"Having had [the Maranello] five years I honestly believe electric cars are the future, and I needed to upgrade," he said. "So I decided to look at what's out there now and I was astonished at how far they've come. And the one that struck me as looking the part is the Mitsubishi."
But naturally, this being Peter Stringfellow, there are some added extras.
"I've enquired about black on black - they're going to put black leather in mine, I've got special black wheels going on it, a fantastic radio, sat nav... what more can I tell you?"
Frankly, we're just surprised Pete didn't opt for twin airbags.
