It is a sublime thing to use, this engine, almost worth the entry price on its own, good enough that using it feels like a privilege. With one minor drawback. Pipes on each inlet duct now channel induction noise straight back to the front bulkhead, but it's too indistinct and muffled, overpowered by the trumpeting exhausts.
Bergamo heaves into view, and the half tank we've used in 150 miles (call it 16.5mpg) is replenished. Up ahead, beyond interminable villages and countless old Fiat Pandas, lies the Passo di San Marco.
