Sorry, I’ve been busy in my shed.
Car of the Decade you ask?
Okay, so I'm too late to influence the vote, but if I’d driven a Veyron it would probably be that.
I find that all sorts of worthy ‘Is it relevant?’ and ‘Isn’t a Kia C’eed a greater achievement?’ arguments tend to go out the window when you activate the 987bhp that’s behind your shoulder.
Anyway, Sutcliffe chose the Bugatti so I’ll have the Lotus 2-Eleven Sport.
Does it move the game on? What game? Don’t know really.
I just loved driving it, especially around a track with someone to tustle with in something similar.
But I love it most because when I drove it I imagined that I was driving a 2.0-litre Lola at Le Mans in 1972. Not an emotion easy to conjure up when driving a Korean hatchback.
