From what I learn from a friend who works on exotics, he suggested that, during a cold morning, start up the engine, wait 'til the idel comes down to normal, let it run for 10sec or so. Then you can drive away, but don't rev the engine or push the car as the oil is getting suck up, and the engine will reach its working temp very soon, and mean while, cut down on the emission, and save the environment....

Once the engine has reach its working temp, you just drive as usual(or anyway you prefer)....

Happy Motoring....
