How fat is your car?
Posted: 20 May 2010
After Stig slams the 207's lightweight door shut and stomps off in the direction of Chiddingfold, seemingly disgusted by our failed attempts to prove Colin Chapman's principles, I set off for a couple of laps in our 207 Superleggera. It feels quite different, sharper on turn-in, more prone to oversteer, less stable. It is also monstrously loud, every cough and parp from the exhaust buzzing viciously through the cabin. In my inexpert hands, as in the expert paws of the Stig, it is absolutely no faster. Ah.
