** The company also ''had the law changed'' just so the car could have its center driver seat. This car is filled with moments of awesome. What makes it even more awesome is the F1 uses the old seating layout that is {{DEADER THAN DISCO}}.

* LordPeterWimsey drives a succession of V12 sleeve-valve Daimlers that he names "Mrs. Murdle," after a character from Charles Dickens (the character was famously against "row", and sleeve-valve engines were famously quiet for the time period, at the cost of considerably worse emissions). He likes to drive fast, too, but is fortunately very good at it.

* Subverted in Creator/CharlesStross's ''[[TheLaundrySeries The Jennifer Morgue]]'': Bob's company Smart Car is suited for city cruising. It is emphatically ''un''suited for driving on the Autobahn, where every passing Mercedes and Porsche sets it rocking in the turbulence. It is ''further'' unsuited for the offroad driving that he has to do, where the suspension manages to make him nauseous. [[spoiler:That is, until Pinky and Brains manage to make a couple of [[Film/JamesBond Q-style]] upgrades to it, which boosts the coolness rating waaay up. And then it's finally subverted ''again'' at the end when the engine locks up and demands to be returned to the factory for maintenance.]]

** Intriguingly, Ferrari has reportedly still not built one with a six-speed manual, instead all of them have a paddle-shifted seven-speed dual-clutch transmission. Sheryl probably picked a manual because it's BadAss (or because she's [[{{Fanservice}} Playing To The Fetishes]] ''again'').
