Well, yes and no. As much as I wanted to finish this story with the line ‘The future's bright, the future's orange', I can't. I admire the left-field thinking that has gone into the Tango, but it doesn't really work for LA yet, and not just because people plainly hate lane-splitting cars. It's also because the T600 has to be built from a kit, charged from an elusive plug-in station and, the final nail in the coffin, you can buy a lane-splitting, infinitely better-looking Ducati 1198 for a tenth of the price.
So, unless I missed something, for all its enormous power and ferocious acceleration, this is one Tango I'll be sitting out.
