John Curtis looks at supercars for his 50th birthday European Distinguished Tour

They pronounce you should not at all converge your heroes and they are right.

In the last week, I have met and motivated well in excess of 2million worth of super and luxury cars.

A number of were epic, a number of were a challenge that I could not overcome and, along the route, a a small number of of my dreams have been devastated.

Like a lot of little boys, trapped in the existence of a middle-aged man, I have always hankered similar to the very preeminent that automotive engineering had to proposal, coupled with extra horses than have ever competed at Aintree.

Going back to my youth, pictures of the Lamborghini Countach were ever present on my bedroom wall.

As I consider my 50th birthday, next year, I wanted to find a suitable car to drive on a European Distinguished Tour birthday bash with Mrs JC.

At 6ft 4in and with shoulders wider than the Clyde, I do realise that I am not an perfect fit for supercars. Save for in my head, I would squeeze in and, once ensconced, could become myself comfortable enough to like the power. Sadly, I was deluded.

I met offerings from McLaren, Porsche, Lamborghini, Jaguar and Bentley. The list of wonderfulness was immense.

My eyes could barely take in the aesthetic treats as I stimulated like a honeybee from one brightly coloured motoring honey pot to another.

Conversely, altogether was not well in the automotive pollen store.

I couldnt become my ample rear in all through the gate of a McLaren MP4-12C, no matter how testing I tried and, believe me, I tried.

There was not enough baby oil in the shop to enable me to be shoehorned into that particular marque.

The expert gossip is I tin become into my dream supercar, a Ferrari 458 Italia. Just.

Conversely, my head hadto be at a 45-degree point to enable me to sitsquarely at the steering wheel.

So, lets be honest, that does take the shine off of Maranellos finest.

The search for a super distinguished tourer continues.

Perchance I necessity merely resign myself to a Ford Transit van and a extra leisurely drive?
