You know what though? I don't care. Sitting in the Aileron, with its ridiculously low header rail - it feels like you're looking through a widescreen cinema screen, or sat in the back of the Stig's helmet looking through his visor - you forget all that competitiveness. You sit and stare at the interior and play with the banks of aerospace-grade toggle switches and fall in love with the drama. A switch in a Ford Focus costs pence. In a Spyker they cost £30. Each. That thing that looks like a counterweight for the gearstick? It's the control system for the satnav and radio, hewn from billet. And every time you touch it, you smile.
