The flat-six yowls an appreciation of revs, mining incongruous torque, second gear is a quick, precise jab with left foot and right arm, and the car tucks and rolls into an uphill left-hand corner. There's a typical scuff of understeer, just before the front finds purchase and yanks the nose back into line, something joyous about being able to really jam the throttle to the floor without waiting for boost, or the fatal deployment of some barely contained power figure. I may not be going devastatingly quickly, but there's something very involved and intimate about the process of the hustle.
