That thing is amazing. Although I am a little let down that they haven't sorted it out better before releasing it to the press. Every time they take it out it breaks.

Well I think for that price (over half a million dollers), I would take many other cars over this one. Carrera GT anyone? The reliability is insulting.

I'm pretty sure you can get it in whatever color you want at that price. Let's just hope they discontinue the "covered in flames" color before they start shipping.

Anyone know if Stig took it around the Top Gear track? Didn't show on the video.

He does, and it did infact get the best time on the Power Board.

However, because it can't go over a speed bumper (front is only 1in off the group or so) it was removed and tossed aside. Shame really.

Best part of that skit was when they showed the armada of safety vehicles they had on stand by.
