Ahem... yeah... That's pretty damn awesome...
There are a few of these. Including a Top Gear appearance i believe.
This is one of those "car things" that will even impress your wife.
I'm shopping for a limo for my son's wedding, so ... I posted it on Facebook for their consideration.
Wife said "That car sounds like a broken lawn mower... Shut it off!" Too bad it wasn't electric. The ICE noise was deemed intolerable.
Well there's always a conversion. The *mute* button.
At least an electric vehicle made an appearance...
More Ken Block Shenanigans...

Those poor tires!
Tesla needs a test course like this in SF...
Okay so this is the ANTI-EV vid. The "how to destroy an engine, clutch, some tires, while wasting a maximum amount of petrol and drop a sick amount of pollution all at the same time" vid.
But keeping the thread Tesla oriented - this could be a great test course for Tesla to carve up in SF. George could you get some street closure time to do something like this with a AWD Performance Model S?! LOL
A fun video posted just today... Professional driver Ken Block, with a 4x4 Ford Fiesta, doped up 650hp, delivering 0-60 in 1.8 seconds.
His driving is beyond unreal. If they didn't have the video to prove it, I wouldn't believe it!
So what would it take to mod a Performance Model S, put Ken in the driver seat, and do this EV style? What is the BHP of the performance motor x2 for an AWD version? What would the stock acceleration be?
Would be interesting if he tricked a Model S out and could pull off similar results, sans all the engine noise.
They really up'd the gorilla suit gag.
Think how hard it must be to keep the streets totally clear. Yes Sunday morn at 5:00AM helps but they are making a bit of noise. I'm guessing there is a fair amount of digital people removing going on for that look.
I imagine every car forum has conversations about "If that was one of our XXX's it would be cool."
And that air-drift was awwwwsome.
