the camera angles here are not the greatest... but the sound is sure cool. unfortunately there's a 30s ad on the front of the clip.

This car reminds me of a really nice exotic kit car with a VW motor. Why not do better on the drive, they certainly could! It likely does not suffer from the artificial harsh throttle restriction imparted on the LEAF from a stop. Imagine a Nissan Z race car ICE with a stock motor at the track. :lol:

that carbon fiber dash does not look very soft either, and I bet the ride is very harsh.. I would not accept one of those as a gift.. no Sir!
