And that’s before you’ve even got in it, fired it up and got your toe down. Walking up to the CS you’ll note the delicate carbon mirrors and, depending on the spec of the car you’re approaching, cut-outs in the windows. You’ll climb aboard and be met by bare carbon and aluminium without any sign of carpets, a suede dash and purposeful bucket seats. These are all 360 CS staples, but they aren’t what defines this car.
