! ... Far more impressive (than 205.60mph, per the certificate @ end), is the "All Street Legal" aspect...!

So , where's the extended version (of the video), divulging what's "under-the-hood"? How many of what type electric_drives, battery_tech, etc...? [Did I, or did I not, see the driver shift-a-gear...(?)]

"Inquiring minds want to know" (these things)!

"wOw"...(!) I am guessing here, that having those heated leather seats, and the air conditioning (which remain present) enabled, would effect a hefty reduction in the "range" performance

((which probably isn't all that great, at those sorts of speeds)).

Wonder whether I'll live to see the day that they combine that sporty of a look and performance, with "Tesla" (or better) self driving capability...

AND hospitals having "tractor-beam-directability"... (in a sort of Northstar application add-on...)<wink>
