    Well, maybe not that interesting, in fact pretty damn slow IMHO..

    But a couple of things worthy of comment.

    Firstly, where and what is that building at the start?

    Secondly, check out the video at ~1min, note just how little rubber is actually in contact with the road/floor!! New tyres clearly but you can see right under the tread grooves! Brings a different understanding on "contact patch"..

    Could be.. Outside verticals look similar but inside appears quite different?

    Slow!?! Whichever marketing agency shot that should be sacked - Yes, it shows the car off but, my God, it drags on.

    Only got to 4 mins before switching off!

    Nice-looking exterior, but the dash is very cluttered.

    What do they need all those buttons for ?

    Yes, Wow indeed !

    If only they'd built a bridge like that across the Channel, instead of the bl66dy tunnel. :rolleyes:

    Before or after the 1min? No comment on the tyre contact patch, light shining through the tread grooves??
