I hope that Chris is not upset with me, but it looks like there were more than enough speed runs to make the point....that car is damn f-ing fast!!!
A bunch of us from were doing an off the cuff photo shoot in the parking lot and were a bit worried at first with the speed runs. However, us wanting to get a ride and after talking with Chris assured us he was just doing some marketing and not just joyriding. There was a few of us left who wanted a ridealong but Chris came back and said he was asked to stop. EVERYONE was totally cool with it, understood, and not upset. Chris had no issues with being asked to stop.

That car is very much for real, no idle issues after all the runs is what amazed me.
