  • Driving it

    5 out of 5 5.0

    What's it like to drive?

    Wonderful. You can throw these cars into corners at speeds you'd not expect to be able to handle and they just track perfectly through the bend. As you get used to the handling you push it more and more, and it always responds perfectly. On roads I know, I keep my foot down through the bends and power out after the apex, and she just grips. Acceleration is sharp, but you find yourself working the throttle and box hard to really keep up with big boys.

    What's it like to park?

    Easy as pie. The only car I've ever parked that doesn't have parking aids.

    Have you had any problems with the car?

    Nothing at all, she's ran perfectly.

    What's most practical about your car?

    Practical? It's a mini. It's really a two person car and not great for luggage. We took her to the airport last year and had to have one case on the back seat.

    Favourite gadget, option or accessory?

    Automatic lights and wipers.
