Here's some consumer information – the most powerful way of messing up your hair can be yours for 4.77 crore, ex-showroom, Delhi. With road taxes and personalisation, you can hit whatever figure you like.

Anyhow, to keep weight low, the roof arrangement is entirely manual. You have to get out, take the two piece roof off and tuck it in the boot at front. It does seem laborious, but what you get is a carbon fibre roof that weighs only 6kgs and the total car weighs only 50kg more than the coupe. Besides, Andrea Baldi, Head of Operations, South East Asia and Pacific emphasised that the car will hit 100 in 3 seconds and go on to 350kph, with the roof up or down. As we said earlier, if you bathe with shower caps, this car isn't for you.

But if you have just got yourself a coupe, and wish you could hear more of that monstrous V12, you know what figure to write on that chequebook. If you've just joined in, here's our drive of the Roadster's coupe twin earlier.
