So what do you do when you have your hands on a car like this? You use it to burst some bubbles. And where do you go to do this? Harrods. Clambering down into the GT and thumping the heavy scissor to, the twisting layers of angular copper that dominate the cockpit evoke Jules Verne’s Nautilus, that Victorian interpretation of technology and progress where the might of ancient industry collides with the delicacy and mystery of tomorrow’s unknown. Red strip lighting slices past the cold, solid metal, sinister and faintly suggestive, and those hands seem to be trembling ever so slightly as they come to rest on the small, Batmobile steering wheel.
