Even though the car is at the technical peak of its time it can be driven by almost anyone. Its conception is focussed on maintenance-friendly long distances. Its handling is good-natured and easy to control. There's no need for prolonged starting procedures: Ignition, warm up, and get going. The C9 is very welcome at Le Mans Classic or Goodwood, and it can also be driven at track days or speed hill climbing events. And, whoever's got the guts, can very well try to kick the 400 km/h.
