At 725kg, it's the heaviest of this foursome, but it also has the most torque. So while it might not have the rabid top-end of the others, it gives you the strongest shove. With big gulps of torque, there's no real need to trouble the gearbox, but it's worth giving it a proper workout, as the changes are so crisp and fast it becomes an essential part of the experience. It's a bit of a handful, tugging and scurrying over the road, but, after a few laps, you realise it's actually one step ahead of you. Relax your grip. Unclasp your buttocks. Let the suspension do the work.
