"Good to drive?" I ask slowly, waggling my hands back and forth in the internationally recognised ‘steering a car vigorously' pose with a questioning look on my face.
"Si!" replies Rocco, cheerily. I'm not sure whether he's agreeing that the Evora does indeed handle well, or simply confirming it has a steering wheel. "And... it's pretty fast, eh?" Rocco shrugs politely. Undeterred, I persist. "Fast. Erm, veloce? Accelerare?" Rocco nods in comprehension. He plants a sturdy leather boot upon the accelerator and the Evora lunges off through the traffic with
a squawk of tyres and whine of supercharger.
