New car. Fast car. Nearly 2000bhp. 0 to 186 miles per hour in under 9 seconds. 9 seconds. I’ve already spent 9 seconds telling you about it… 186 miles per hour. This is amazingly brilliant, and also outside of my price range at $2 million. But one can dream, can’t they?

What four-wheeled unobtanium would dare show its angular face in Casino Square or a climate-controlled Abu Dhabi garage without a Countdown wordjumble branded on its backside?
