It is very stunning.....however im not a big fan of the front side intakes. I love what they did with the rear end.

You have to admit though that it toke AM a long time to make a 60 car less than 4.0 seconds. All that luxury adds weight, and considering this car weighing in at 3300 with those numbers is still a bit sad. For example, take the LP640 weighing in at 3670 with 640 hp taking around 3.3 sec.

However this is a very exclusive car with a high price to match. I believe most of these cars will be garage queens and never see the light of day.

I think the 0-60 is probably conservative and anyway traction will be a big problem. the car has so much high tech that I wish they will see track time etc.. Of course the price is so huge that might not happen very often..
