3.1 zero to sixty
207mph top end
1/4mile 10.6

Mind numbingly fast, and I got to drive it around the block. Dr. Bruce told me to hammer it at 20, which I obliged, and the snap, the sideways, the rubber smell....I was in it for a second, but not 2. 70mph flashed and I let off. Doc said, "Perfect. Hahah. You know what's up." and we pulled back into the parking lot.

2 things. The steering. Off the charts. barely turn that tight wheel and there it goes. There is no spinning the steering wheel round and round for a turn. 1/4 turn mebbe for a full right turn. The other thing was that zero to 60. I've never...... ever...... ever...... been launched like that. In the space of about a football field.

I got to put my foot in a quarter million dollar supercar.

Wow! I sure as heck will. I got the bug bad now. Thanks for the links, I've been meaning to get to Houston sometime anyway for that new Spring Skatepark, largest in the nation. Now I'll have two things to shoot for.

edit:

ooo wee!

Just turned a 16 Prius 4 into a 17 Prius Prime, it's a plug-in with a 22 mile pure electric range, my skating spot is 15 miles away, I just drove there skated and drove home, still have 4.9 miles left on the battery, as that distance is what most of my trips are, I'm not going to be buying much gas

I have nearly identical twins now......a 2001 BMW 540i Dinan 5, and a 2001 BMW M5 Dinan S3. The M5 is my prized possession, I've wanted it since it was new! The Dinan 5 was my project that ran away on me. Started out as a driver.......now it's my really nice driver. The M5 is for beautiful weather road trips....... too much power for wet roads.

Fast ride! I had been kinda following Big Red, the early Camaro that ran the Silver state classic long ago. Then came back to it a few years later to win again. It topped out at 254mph. My friends like running at Bonniville

One day there will be no gas cars and strangely i can see the benefit of all electric.
