Try it with a car that notoriously does not go very straight under power. Yikes...

Who ever says Diesel's are slow needs to watch this. Into the 11's, I've seen guys in the high 9's. I'll try to find some videos of the 9 second diesel. Pretty cool.

true, but its not really "underpower" if you have 3 miles to do it... considering the car probably reaches more than half of that speed in a 1/4 mile under hard throttle.

Ask Jay Leno how 200 feels whilst spinning his Carerra GT out. Granted it was on a track, but still anything over about 120 on the ground is pretty eye watering. My Z06 has been to 185, very stable, but overwhelming!

I am stuck debating with myself after watching the first video.

Point
Fast convertibles need cages. Maybe they don't race at the track or they are trying to sneek up on someone on the street with a roots blower whining away and purging the nitrous, I don't know. If I see a style bar on a convertible, I know there is nothing to be worried about.

Counterpoint
I did notice that the car does have a fuel system, you can see there is something coming from the sump at the back of the tank. Cars with fuel systems are fast.

I wouldn't know what to do, on one hand, I've got this guy covered, on the other I might be dealing with a title contender... what to do???
