Are Friends Electric?

Ralph's Ampera

I met up with Ralph for lunch today at the Toby Carvery at Enderby (we know how to live!). It was the first time I’d seen his new car – the rather spectacular Vauxhall Ampera.

I was even more impressed when I got inside. DVD player, Sat Nav and reversing camera are all standard equipment. The sound system was probably better than my hi-fi and the acceleration from standstill, (almost silent), was breathtaking!

But the feature that really impressed me, was the ‘pre-conditioning’. With a key-press on the fob, from the comfort of our bar-stool and two rather large Ice-Cream Sundaes, Ralph was able to fire-up the air-con and get the car to the ideal temperature! Fantastic!!!

I want one!!!
