Just start it. You only need to wait for the glow plug light to go out if it’s a diesel. 

Thanks for the clarity @Barrymine is petrol ️

Give it 30 to 90 seconds for oil pump to lubricant the engine and off you go in normal driving

if you are going to push it hard as soon as it starts then it's better to wait for the engine to reach operating temperature so you can be throttle happy and enjoy the performance

Most turbo cars have a delay timer which leaves the engine running even after ignition switched off and doors locked which will turn off the engine after reaching it's required temperature

I’ve fitted a few turbo timers but I’ve never seen one fitted as standard on a car. What cars have them?
