    I agree. To me driving on enjoyable roads in the UK is much better done is a 'smaller' car than one the size of an R8. Most German roads are a bit wider than ours and driving something like an R8 off the motorway would be a better experience in it's 'homeland'

    It's the people with **** cars that worry me. At least someone who has a performance car is least determined to cause harm to other road users. After I slowed to a stop to let a tailgating white van driver overtake me on a 20mph road in London despite not being able to go much further, he still decide he would try and clip the front of my car.

    A driver in an expensive car would not be of a mindset to do this.

    R8 only 6cm wider and 10cm longer than an A3 Sportback.
    Will happily (more like snugly) fit into a single garage and is nowhere near too big for UK roads.
