So after not owning a Seven for about 10 years I decided in March I would buy another one. Then Covid happened so that slowed down the process. So last week I finally decided it was time buy and the process began.
After a little bit of good advice from Stu decided R400 power was needed in narrow body. So looked online and narrowed down R400's and 420s to view.
So this afternoon did second visit to Christopher Neil to do some test drives: this car will be replacing a Porsche 718 Spyder.
1. Was 420S - found it difficult to drive around town, kept stalling it (much worse than the Fireblade I used to have). And did make me wonder what am I doing!!!
2. decided I should try an Elise 250cup (I used to have a S2) - felt it had no low down grunt but great on twisty lanes.
3. asked if I could try an Exige 410 (also used to own an Exige S2 190) - this was a big mistake - great round town and the noise and speed around the twisty lanes was as amazing. One of the best cars I have driven,
4. A 620S SV - wasn't sure about this - but it was happy around town and so much fun around the twisty lanes. Drove so much better than the 420S.
So I think it's going to be the 620S but that Exige is making me doubt my plans. Although boss has only given me permission to buy a Seven as I have used man maths and well-being for the mind only a Seven can bring during lockdown.
