The Lambo is the least friendly to be in. The driving position isn't very good, the view ahead letter-box slender, and the fixed carbon-shelled bucket seats are hard work at first. The carbon-skinned door clangs shut like a race car's, and there's thinner glass on the windscreen and side windows, and Perspex on the rear-quarter windows. Yes, it skims weight off, and it feels lean. But a bit mean too. And old. Why does this car suddenly feel old? Pat again: "About 80 per cent of the people who'd buy the Lambo would be doing it for other people's benefit. With the Porsche, it's probably the other way round."
