You can’t always predict those perfect car moments.
One of my favourite drives in the Exige has got to be an impromptu blast around some local country roads with my 94 year old uncle. After him looking at and discussing the car (and others) with me at length, he declared ‘You must take me for a spin’. I’d always assumed given the Exige’s reputation for, let’s say involved entrance and exit access strategies, that this was a no go zone for a 94 year old! However his only concern being he might scuff the door trim with his shoes, so a quick change into his carpet slippers had him in the car without an issue. Much easier than many I know!
I've never seen such a big smile on his face, with his rear-end 8 inches off the ground the sensation of speed was exhilarating for him as he urged me on from my more cautious start.
A fantastic 45min blast with the sun setting and in perfect company, RIP uncle Jack :-)
