As teenagers we would routinely challenge the owners of sports cars to race against us (running on foot) for a distance of 40 ft. Hardly any car can beat a runner in 40 ft.

I'm such a dork. The only thing (other than the obvious) in that sketch which caught my attention was the fact that the GT-R generates 485hp.

Lamborghini's first engine (designed by ex-Ferrari guy Bizzarini) developed 490hp... in 1963. (It was lated detuned to a measly 270hp for the beautiful Lambo 350 GT -- still one of the most beautiful and reliable sports cars ever made.)

The difference between Bizzarini's engine and the GT-R's is that with a stock gearbox, the Lambo engine could pull a house off its foundations. Try doing that with the GT-R...

Yeah, and Michelle Jenneke is a total doll, despite being an Aussie.

That's a pure fluff piece, and I loved every second of it.

I've driven that track. They have open race days where you can drive whatever you bring to the track and open it up as far as you dare. I'm quite proud of the fact I drive faster than a Sunday afternoon Grannie. Mind you, I didn't appear to be much faster when I was passed by cars going over 100km/h faster than me.

Oh, PLEEEASE.

If you were in a car driving next to a tight running shorts clad Michelle Jenneke, would you nail the gas to get in front of her?
