The call of nature again. I'd rather pee in a bush than risk another lay-by, so I find a quiet junction and head down a suitable-looking B-road. I love getting in and out of the Wraith. Well, the getting out anyway. You just step out forwards. Getting back in is more complex: you have to approach and twist through 180 degrees. Two things make that happily tolerable. The doors whirr shut electrically via a button if you want; and you get to see the inside of the doors as you approach the car. I think the door card, as it's officially known, is the best detail on the whole car. It's an uninterrupted piece of veneer, a real statement.
