there is a write up in this month's Road and Track. It's pretty funny.

I WANT THAT CAR!

When I was growing up, I used to build that car from my Legos's.

Awe come on, HUGE rep points for the Lego thing. I know that anyone who was anyone built THAT car with their Legos

From a picture caption:
"Driving through a dense forest? Zircon-tipped saw blades will cut down anything in your path. The Mach 5 powered through our slalom like nothing we've ever seen before."
From test notes:
Acceleration: With the crampons engaged, tire slip is negligible. Set the transmission to automatic and let the computer do the shifting since you'll be busy focusing far enough ahead as all 1700 bho is unleashed."

Performance numbers:
0-100ft: .7sec
1/4-mile: 2.6@197.1

The whole thing is funny, mostly the spec sheet.

The sad part is, is that the guy who place Speed (Emile Hirsch) is actually a pretty good actor.

He was in The Girl Next Door, Lords of Dogtown and Alpha Dog.
