TG drives the VW XL1 in London
We stop outside the former Bluebird Garage in Chelsea, now in their words a 'gastrodome' of high-end food joints. Swing up the semi-gullwing door. A man comes over. What is it, what's it cost, when's it on sale? I tell him it's all about economy, but not cheapness, price not confirmed. "I don't care. I'm going to order one." Later, in Smithfield, it's the same quiz, from a man who has an R8 Spyder. I mention it might be too slow for him. He doesn't seem put off.
