Vauxhall Tigra (and how to have fun)

When insisting that its new Tigra coupe was fun to drive, Vauxhall chose to first point out the kind of folk it wouldn’t appeal to. They were the types who iron creases into their jeans, who meticulously split their restaurant bills, and who insist on folding their pyjamas (whatever those are).

All quite bizarre.
