You can't see it at all from inside the car, but every time you approach the R, from any angle, the combo of roof-top coffin and wing thing make this a supercar of high - if not actually slightly camp - drama. Pop the flashy doors, and people gasp and make little sighing noises, like tiny drive-by orgasms. It's not conventionally pretty, and it has a lot of seemingly disparate elements, but somehow you can't help thinking that if you want a supercar to look like a supercar, this concoction of exotic pre-preg carbon and Kevlar looks almost like a caricature. Like it should be doing its (theoretical and unproven) top speed of 275mph, all the time.
