    I gotta try one of these.

    There was a thread a while back, (here), which discussed cars, I think I'd like to take one of these for a test run.

    Check out the videos, and place your order now.

    That's almomst as much as a Ferrarir Enzo F6 costs($1 million). The engine has nice output though. Only thing I've seen similar was a 640 hp output Merlin 540 land engine.
