Even the humble 159 Lusso with 4 pot Brembos (the silver ones) work pretty smartish. Last night going home on the A24, I had a lady (confirmed as I eventually got past her) in a Skoda, a non overtaking overtaker, as I call them, in the outside lane going slightly slower than the vehicle to their near side, know the type? Anyway she eventually pulled over but as I started to overtake her, she just starts pulling out again!!!! Even on the dry road the ABS kicked in, had there been a car with lesser brakes behind me, I could well have been dealing with an insurance claim today.
But, lets do a rant if I can. What is it with some people? Take this Skoda driver, she had absolutely no awareness of any other cars on the road, there is no way she checked her mirror before pulling out, and I should be thankfull she at least indicated. We spend our driving lives having to watch our own safety and that of people without any brains.
Someone said to me, "so whats so special about an Alfa Romeo then?" I told him, "If you have to ask, you wont understand".
