This story started badly. I can tell things haven’t gone
well, because approximately one hour after first stepping into the new Audi R8
GT, I’m curled uncomfortably in a semi-foetal position in the back of a police
car having a painful conversation with two police officers. Neither look happy.
Mind you, I probably don’t look particularly Timmy Mallet either.
“Is that… vehicle… your car, Sir?’
He nods to the R8 GT gleaming menacingly in the lay-by, the
Audi rings skulking under the broad blade of fixed rear wing. The massive
exhausts look a bit like gun barrels. Big ones.
