    So battery died overnight - not even enough juice to open the boot to plug the c tech in (which is also
    in the boot )

    Is there an emergency release ?

    I think you have a GT. Under the passenger side rear seat there is a ring to pull which manually releases the boot. It may be stiff.

    Sorry - it’s a 2010 Granturismo
    Whilst panicking and listening to the alarm going off I searched YouTube
    and found this.

    There is a manual release under the passenger side rear seat. Simple loop of wire
    a pain to find but easier when you know it’s acually there !!

    Anyway - all sorted and battery on charge

    So that leads to the question: where is the manual release on a 2 seater Strad???

    I would hazard a guess that you have to unscrew the carpet bench seat.
