I have been known to partake in spirited driving after sunset. A well lit roadway is needed for safety. A basic sports car can go without extra luxury features but good lighting is not what I consider a luxury feature. It's one of the important sports car features.
I agree, around here the only fun place to drive is the back country roads, and at night, in the summer, its even better.
Not redicoulous speeds, but spirited, take a turn a tad faster than normal driving. I know i would like the road lit up well int hat case.
