Here you go.

This is a masters course in driving. Very smooth, the car is never upset, never strained, just making speed.
It never seems to lose traction. It has traction control and probably yaw control. I think a couple of chatters but amazed at the lack of push or oversteer.

My favorite steer wheel. Straight bar 14 inch. Thumbs at 9 and 3. Nice crossovers. I think he pulled a hand off once

He is still blazing fast at the top. Normal turbo car would lose 1/3 hp and yet his shifts seem just as quick between gears. As I said once...I'm curious if this car has energy recapture technology, to use at high altitude.

The speed is deceptive, because of the smoothness.
The gate guard glares at me. "It's after curfew." He looks me up and down, "What do you think you are, some kind of ****** tourist?" ..Phu Loi 1969
