Not disagreeing but what i meant is the car is useless outside the strip. I did say it was cool (yet unbelievably ugly) but i would not own something like that.
As for american cars handling lets not go there....when europeans were taking the twists and racing cars the americans were still riding horses. And i will leave it to that.

Lo there do I see my mother.
Lo there do I see my brothers and my sisters.
Lo there do I see the line of my people back to the beginning.
Lo they do call to me
they bid me take my place among them in the Halls of Valhalla,
where the brave may live forever"

That means that as quick as you can say "one Mississippi," Saboury's Corvette goes from the starting line to 60 feet, or a distance of nearly two-thirds the length of a regulation basketball court. At takeoff, its front tires go airborne.
wouldn't wheels off the ground be considered stunting?

also, that exhaust i'm sure isn't legal.
