When the engine fires, it does so with a concussive roar that sets off car alarms for yards in every direction. It’s a frightening, painful sound from within or without and the prospect of a run-in with the law seems inevitable. Sure enough, within moments the Met are alongside, gesturing from the open window of a marked-up 5-Series. With no means of lowering our window the scissor door has to go up. This is so amusing to them that they quickly wave us on, reassured by the promise that the car is road legal (probably, we think) and will be on its way back to Paris by nightfall either way.
