Anyway. We're up in the mountains, and no one would be able to see my penis if I were driving this car naked with the top down, and, by my own rules, that means I'm allowed to drop the roof. Once it's down, the ‘tonneau' part behind the seats can be raised again to reveal a second small boot. The vertical glass between the seats can be raised and lowered independently. Lower it but keep the side windows up if driving fast. This seems to give the smoothest airflow in the cabin.
The heater is cracking and so are the heated seats. Off we go, then. Select manual control, set the chassis and power knobs to Sport and Track respectively, the McLaren 12C Spider is instantly alive and eager.
