The tires spin and squeal pretty damned easily, especially in sport mode in an Auto-X or HPDE type setting, although they still squeak pretty easily with everything on on the road. I try not to push it that hard normally, but it can happen.

Ah, well, I've never actually driven the car in sport mode, or with the ESC off. I've been so impressed with its behavior in default mode that I've never had the urge...especially since it would probably use up tread.

Fun to watch on Top Gear, but I've also seen them go through entire tires in one outing on their track.
