Going to trade it in on a 2CV, that'll stop her pinching my AMG!
This is why Chevrolet invented the Wife Key for the Corvette...
A Wife key?
I forget which ‘Vette it debuted with. The concept was, the Husband Key had a transponder that activated the standard full power map in the engine ECU and all four cylinder banks. The Wife Key activated a reduced power map and/ or only two- three cylinder banks dependent on the model year, so only half power was available. Cue many American housewives wondering why their hubbies raved over Corvettes when (to them) they were only vaguely sporty.
I've always wondered why this isn't an option anyway. Not the key part but the switchable maps which cut cylinders so allow the car to be able to be used in full fat v8 500bhp mode or say a 4 cylinder 250bhp but most importantly with much improved mpg. It would make the cars far more popular and lets face it you don't need all 500bhp to pop to the shops but you do want it for the 2 hr trip over the A roads.
Oh and my wife has always driven the e55 (and the 996t that came before) and now has her own c55 estate.
That is the worst thing i have seen for a long time, an SL being driven in the rain!!!
Doesn’t the Veyron have something similar ?
It should need it, that thing is nearly as powerful as an Astra 1.7 TDCI hire car!
White van version no way!
Nope an LDV would have it beat, I agree. To say nothing of a Transit pickup.
You had to put the key in to a slot (by the handbrake button IIRC) and turn it to de-restrict the car fully
