300CUL8R, I'm driving the hell out of a 1985 Mercedes 380SE. Sure it has power steering and an automatic (though to get the gears you want in turns you have to shift it through the gates...and yes, like a properly designed shifter, it actually has a gate of sorts even though it's an auto, i.e. it's gated so if you know the pattern of lefts and rights, you never miss the gear you want), but it also has a hard vinyl steering wheel, and the gloves give me that additional steering control that I seek.
Sure it takes 17.2 seconds to run the 1/4, and sure the top speed is only 125mph (though I can say from personal experience that it can do that for 2 hours straight without the coolant temp going up 1 degree), but that German engineered suspension carries those 4100lbs (with gas and driver) through the turns nicely. The words most often heard from my passenger seat: "oh shit." The miata and A4 I dusted and the ZR-1 who couldn't lose me until we got out of the twisties will attest to the fact that the driving gloves help. So will my friend who I gave a ride to the other day as I did a 4 wheel drift at 70 around a curve with chevrons and a recommended 25mph sign.
Though I'll admit, I don't like driving gloves on leather wrapped wheels, I'll take gloves and a plastic wheel over a leather wheel any day.
Edited to add: In case you couldn't tell I catch a lot of flack for my gloves, but when those same people ride with me, they note that they now understand why I wear them.
