    Think this was press, but is a very long ride:



    Haven't seen it anywhere else, but apologize if someone already posted it.

    What I can't figure out about that ride is why everyone sits so quietly. I imagine if someone showed me 0-60 in 4.5 seconds, I'd probably have an involuntary comment or two. Must be the media trying hard not to turn their hand.

    There are quite a few knockling / crackling sounds when the ride starts at the slalom. The guy on the passenger seats even turns around to see what it is. The suspension? Someone noticed it too during their ride? Other than that the ride really was weirdly quiet. Passengers and car! The drivers floors it three times and even with 5 people on board (I suspect) 85 mph was reached quickly.

    5.6s at the moment, apparently the test rides weren't sports, :)

    I think it was a big film camera.

    Plus, with five people in the car, it probably isn't even close to 5.6s.
