I cropped out the placard with my name, DOB and location of arrest. True fact: my girlfriend is a police officer. ;)

You’re not kidding. I’m stood here cooking dinner and all I can think of is picking up the keys and going back out there. Lamborghini started out making tractors too. The story of how they came to be a car manufacturer is rather interesting.

So, today on a drive back from dropping one of my girls off at a friends I took the long way home, through a few miles or so of twisty A roads (with nothing in sight) and took the opportunity to get to know the car in sport mode using the paddle shift.

Up until now (four weeks in) I’ve intentionally not touched the paddles, I wanted to get to know the cars dimensions and be comfortable in it first.

Well, what can I say. Unbelievable. On twisty sections it’s just divine, addictive and so rewarding. 

Paddles :thumbsup:

Glad you’re enjoying it.

by the way if you really want to see how good it is we have a spare space until I have to cancel it on Monday. 

With the added bonus of meeting the legend that is our very own @C8RKH

Did IOM last year with s9s crew, in the E400 auto. Was up on the mountain at 6am every morning and 130+ mph runs felt ace.  Just make sure you have front plate fitted as police are giving tickets vs last year's friendly stop to make you fit one

Do miss that car.  Could do with a Blue Hethel edition Auto

Oh to be a traffic officer on the Isle of Man, what a job that must be.... Apart from the shoveling up of mangled motorcyclists that is...

We had a good relationship with an inspector over there until he retired last year. Used to recount the stories of driving the unmarked Focus STs. He killed the last one responding to an incident after the roads were shut during the 2016 TT. Actually managed to blow the engine up and dump all the oil on the track.

Sorry, been away winding up the Remoaners on the playground for a laugh. God its like shooting fish in a barrel but really good fun. Need to spark off a Porker comment and that'll really get them frothing....

Glad you're enjoying the car matey and @Colin P runs a mean IoM trip that I can thoroughly recommend. Organisation is top notch. Looking forward to it immensely as nice folk too.

Alcohol. Sex. Tobacco. Drugs. Chocolate.  Meh! NOTHING in this world is as addictive as an Evora +0. It's not for babies!    

The first guy to ride a bull for fun, was a true hero. The second man to follow him was truly nuts!

This line really resonates with me - the journey of getting to know your car before giving it the beans!

Equally - a relief to hear it was a good experience, I thought for the briefest of moments there was going to be an issue haha!
