Can the King of the Roadsters grow up without selling out? We headed to the Black Forest to find out...

As views go, the Black Forest in February is fairly undemanding. Endless ranks of trees shot through with a broken, grey scar of a road, the view compressed by a horizon-wide cataract of cloud. The palette is of nature's workhouse shades - brown, grey, dark green, more brown, a small despair of black - but the tones are muted to the point of desaturation, a forest viewed by a colour-blind god. Honestly? It's a bit heavy on the wantonly melancholic. Evergreen Goth.
