I spent a couple of days recently driving a Porsche 911 Turbo and its rivals for the test. And yes, that was just as much fun as it sounds. It was also extremely easy. Easier, in fact, than driving a Smart ForTwo home.

The 911 Turbo, Nissan GT-R and Audi R8 are all classed as supercars, and yet the Smart ForTwo CDI provides more difficulties than any of them.

We drove the 911 and its rivals around Wales, down some exceptionally wet and narrow mountain roads, on to some awkward town roads, and then proceeded to Castle Combe race circuit. I drove the Smart down the M3 and round Woking town centre on a normal damp evening, and found that it was harder to drive smoothly than any of the supercars had been.

You can read the first drive here, but in order to get the Smart down the road without it rocking backwards and forwards every time the ‘box changes gear, you have to put it in manual mode, lift off the throttle before you change up and then gently apply throttle just as the gear engages.
