You should never meet your heroes, as I demonstrated years ago on Top Gear TV when I drove the Lamborghini Countach. It had dwelt in my mind as the enduring afterglow of some passion long spent, like Byron’s recollection of the sweetness of first love, and I ruined it by actually driving the thing, which was awful. A part of me sustained by blind romantic faith was ruthlessly slaughtered, and it was my fault.
