Amazing car.
yeah it's a hell of a car.... He actually works in the corporate building like not even across the street... his kid also goes to our school and she got to drive it lol (and she was freaked cause it was so powerful, lol) it's something like 400hp, isn't it?

I'll tell ya, since we both go the same way to work, I tried to race him from the light (lol, idiot!) let's make it safe to say that erm, I should have had a camera....blew me away (then again, he DOES have four times the hp as me, and two more turbos than I do) that thing's turbo spooling is just amazing....
