Ha, Ha. (I presume you are joking.)
I had one of these out for a day around the Cotswolds. (60th Birthday present) My arms still ache from the steering and I still have a nervous shake because of the damn awful brakes.
Fabulous experience though I've never seen so many cameras. This one was red .... and it was sunny.

Hi F-Pace,
The day was great and I thoroughly enjoyed it. Just glad I didn't have it for a week.
I was really pleased to get back into my (then) brand new Evoque.

Its what real driving is about, no fancy computers or power steering or assisted brakes, reminds me of when I first was driving we had nothing, no ABS or traction control, you soon learnt how to drive without all these modern day assists.

Personally I liked some of the old school as you had a better feel of what the car was doing under you.

Been there, done that, the E Type is gorgeous to look at but that's it, they are noisy, uncomfortable, hot, draughty, smelly and very heavy to drive. I ran one for 12 yrs until the wife forced me to change it - for an XK8, even I had to admit she was right and it has been a good car.
