“Enough of the timid driving”, I could hear my hormones pleading. I fidgeted with the M Drive menu, which enables one to adjust the vehicle’s sporty character, via the on-board computer. When you want her to dance to some sensual tango, she’s ready at the touch of the M button on the steering wheel. Some of the options include the ferocity of the EDC, throttle mapping, traction control and servotronic. I maxed out everything and left traction control on, since this had saved my life way too many times in the past. Knowing the power of the behemoth that lay beneath the hood, it was the wise thing to do.
SPIRITED: Kashif's kitted ride of choice has all the makings of a pukka sports car, but is comfortable enough to use on a daily basis.
