No, it really happened to me - not only did it jump on me unexpectedly
but it's not like any other vehicle behaviour I've ever experienced.

I did it in a turn (A509 northbound to A14 eastbound) that I take
two or three times every day very close to the limit in both the
ur-quattro and the Type 44.  It was nothing I did - the car did it all.
