If you had, you would know the answer.

A sedan and sportscar are equally capable of transportation function much as Camilla Parker Bowles and Elizabeth Hurley are equally capable of physical function. There is, however an ever so slight difference.

No heritage, just big engines in Audis. (Even Audi have more heritage.)

And, I say, actually,
the storey goes that yer man Lambo the tractor maker remonstrated with his friend Ferrai about how terrible the gearbox was in the Ferrai car wot he had just bought.
Mr Ferrai cuts up a bit rough & cheeky to the effect that what the fuck would a tractor maker know about exotic sports cars.
So Mr. Lambo goes and builds one ( and a few more ) to prove him wrong.
Gosh darn it those Italians sound almost as contrary as us N Iron folks

Say it ain't so!

These replies are curious.

when I said there was no logic in sportscars I meant it as a positive. If everyone was logical we would all be driving around in Honda Accords.
