I agree, most people have no concept of how fast 270+ is. My best is 180!Personally, I felt like I was in the cockpit with him!! Love to hear a Chevy wind up!!!

Goosebumps on my arms!!!

270 MPH will get you no quicker to the next traffic light in traffic but it will chug down more gas doing so.

Impressive performance but the comments about clearing the track made me think about a video I saw many years ago.  Revves Callaway and his team developed a corvette which was designed to be driven to the track - do a speed record trial and then driven home.  They made a video and since that was 1988 and they did 254.7 mph was impressive.  

So an extra 400HP gets another 16 or 17 mph.  Squeezing every mph out is impressive but I'm still more impressed with that record by Callaway and his team in 1988 - thats 26 years ago.

Check it out ....

I watched the making of the Bugatti Veyron and the hoops that they had to go through, getting 270mph out of something that has to stay on the ground is a challenge no matter what you start with. My guess is there's a lot of work under the hood. Then amortising that across 29 cars and still making it worth your while, I'm inclined to not entirely share your island

With the government mandating 54.5 mpg it seems a waste of time to make a car go faster. The only thing it would accomplish is to be the first one at the next stoplight. Why not try to build a car that gets 100 mpg. That woukld be news.

Oh! -- More like an aerial attack --- kamikaze-style, without the crash  impact --- buzzing by to disperse a hostile crowd ?  I think I can imagine  it – that would be terrifying.

The one report that I read said that a line of people walk the entire strip, and crush any lumps over about a quarter inch. And there are no holes or real bumps because it is a prepared course. And if there were any debris it would be removed.

JimT, that thing Tom Cruse did was a cartoon version. A real one is quite intense, but usually done while the boys on the ground are having a fire fight, which is not fun. So mostly there are a lot of distractions going on that prevent the full appreciation of the thing. But seeing a demonstration during training is awsome.
