The rear wheels are so tucked up behind the fronts that all four seem to occupy the same piece of tarmac at the same time. Even in the tightest corners, both sets seem to sniff the exit simultaneously, so you plant the throttle, and in second it'll merrily spin all four wheels as 433lb ft hits home. It doesn't juggle the power as communicatively as a GT-R, and if you carry too much lock out of corners it will understeer, but judge it right and this stubby little battering ram rips off into the distance, tyres howling, exhaust trumpeting that hollow-throated roar.
