Its a ridiculous amount of power to just two wheels. Hard to effectively put it down compared to an awd like the Veyron.

But still

Yeah...wondering why we need a car that goes 220 mph? Just where would you drive that speed legally? Dumb.

All we need is the bra section in the Sears catalog to get off.

Did that shifter seem incredibly clunky to anybody else, like 3 discrete steps between gears...?

I noticed he had to get off it at the top of 1st to keep from breaking loose as it got gnarly at the peak of the turbo I got the feeling that he wasn't pushing it all the way through the first two gears because of that.

It was irresponsible to permit this with all the other vehicles on the other side of the highway.

Legally? Nowhere.

But realistically, to get from L.A. to Vegas and back in one night, the 15 is usually cop-free during the week.

I think when you have to handle that much power with sub-Ferrari prices and technology, lightness and fluidity go out the window.

You don't speed shift a car trying to max out or set a speed record, why would you risk spinning the tires at that speed or rpm.

I would like to do a speed run on that nice new road!!

That section of toll road just opened a day or two ago. This was shot before then. Those vehicles near the end were various officials and from the tuner.

Though its sort of like Baumgartner's "science" from his jump, they did verify that the toll booth cameras and such could get a picture of a vehicle's license plate at 220 mph just fine.

It's for the same reason certain types of people want to own pit bull terriers and firearms. Because they think it shows everyone how manly they are.

I have had the hots for her since Law and Order.

I would gladly give her the most disappointing 10 seconds of her life.

Might still be able to turn left too... Top tier NASCAR cars are about 900ish HP (with about an 800lb advantage)

That car is very cool.

Because not everybody is satisfied with driving a clunky piece of shiat because it makes them feel good about a planet that would kill you and not even notice.

Worthless road for cars.

BUT, great for truckers wanting to bypass SA and Austin coming in from I-10 east trying to avoid the I-35 gridlock.
