Cool

I've driven it around the shop, but yesterday I got to take it out on the road to see what it did. This car is made to go fast, and to be safe while doing just that. Let me tell you, the Dynamic Stability Control (DSC) works very well ... I drove about 30mph in second gear around a "turnaround", punched it halfway into the turn, and it continued to accelerate with no more than a slight chirp from the rear tires. For the ABS test ... drove about 45mph, I slammed on the brakes, and stopped within what seemed to be no more than 15 feet. This car accelerates nicely, feels really stable at *cough* high speeds, and stops like no other....now if I only had about $50K.
