"Shockingly, no, I haven't," I said, layered thick with the sarcasm needed when someone asks to see your driving resume while handing you the keys to a car whose insurance value is currently north of $2.5 million.
"Oh, it's good fun. You're in for a treat," he replied through a toothy grin.
And just like that, we were off.
