I wonder how big of a hard-on 270 MPH gives you?

Montana.

It would cost more for me to run it than my first house, I bet. If its anything like the Bugatti Veyron, with it's multi thousand dollar tires that only last a couple of hours, at speed. Then gas, maintenance, and if you ever did break anything at all.

Still...it's nice to see how far they can push. Wonder who gets to 300 mph first?

Montana has speed limits since May 28, 1999.

You forgot one word "Insurance"!

Thanks for the update.

I thought they still had some roads that were free of speed limits.

Yeah, that insurance would be a killer too.

I think they should change the name to the Compensator GT.

Doesn’t seem very practical. . . . . . . . . How much can it tow? Can you get a lift kit for it?
