Praise indeed!

Went to Goodwood breakfast club last Sunday, as I finished parking the Brera in the paddock area, as I lock up, some guy with an American accent approached me and start asking about the Pinifarina badge I put in the rear wing (a non standard item), and it turns out he owned a Brera 3.2 Q4 manual as a company car whilst working for Alfa in Italy and was very happy the car, which was completely reliable and well built, despite being a little heavy.

He then started talking about being the designer of the new Mini when we looked at the original Mini Cooper parked next to the Brera, and went on to say don't forget to watch Top Gear this weekend which featured the new Mclaren he designed, at this point I started thinking maybe he is joking, but after a google session I realised I was speaking to Frank Stephenson Nice to know he is still fond of the Brera amongst the list of exotic machines he worked on!

How did you treat him when you thought he was joking
