0-60 in 2.5 seconds

Top speed in excess of 250mph, but can't do 40 in the rain.

Wicked car, 0 to 60 in 2.5 is flying. Imagine what that little fender bender will do to your insurance.

Even if you can afford the car, the insurance rates would have already been more than most people in the U.S. could afford.....


In a while, Chet.

That makes me sick looking at that picture. Especially knowing that if they were driving that car in the rain then they could probably afford another one.

things like that make me mad. that is the very top of line, hand built, super car. The time and craftsmanship that must have gone into it i can not imagine. Then some rich jerk destroys it. If you would even consider driving that car in the rain you should be stripped of all your nice car privileges and given a Geo metro. Even if this was some sort of freak storm out of no where, it doesn't take a genius to drive slow enough for the conditions.

I like seeing what happens when people who should probably be driving a Buick try to run an exotic. All the money in the world doesn't make you experienced enough to handle some of the wicked fast cars that are out there.

They either drive 'em too slow and ruin them or race them and tear them up. There's a plastic surgeon that lives near my girlfriend that has a Testarossa. On sunny days he takes it out and cruises up and down the same street for about an hour or two. It sounds like crap because it has never been run at it's full potential. He has admitted he's scared of it, but always wanted one.

As the guy told Toad in American Graffiti, "Is that you in that fancy car? Man, what a waste of machinery."
