Brera S v Brera 3.2 V6 Q4
right, today i saw my first Brera S in a closed AR showroom.
It looked the mutt's nuts, and being the superficial bloke i am, I'm half thinking i like it more looks-wise than the 3.2 V6 i've requested.
And yet...i've sold myself on the big Bee as being a lovely, gentle-mannered GT; a good place in which to enjoy the drive to good times. So what if it's a bit nose heavy on like 4% of corners; Elise-like handling isn't its raison d'etre. Feeling good is what the Bee's about.
And now the S has come along, with its seductive looks. On so many levels - dynamic, status, kudos - it's the Bee to have.
And i drove home thinking...nah, the 3.2 V6 is the truest interpretation of the chilled Brera ideal...so you reckon i should stick with that then? Coz i do.
Even in the darkest hour, love comes shining through.
Then it doesn't seem so far from me to you.
