Styling-wise it was straight out of the aftermarket performance accessory catalogue – matt paintwork, huge brightly-coloured brake callipers, contrast seat stitching and bits of carbon fibre all made an appearance.

Not the subtlest thing ever, but its intended audience (oil-rich princelings, oligarchs’ offspring, hip-hop moguls) will almost certainly not care. Subtle? Is there an Italian word for that?
