That car is not the right shape to go 200 mph. The crashes will be amazing.

That's really great timing, considering that gas prices are over $4 a gallon and will continue to go up over time. Detroit needs to stop rolling out ever bigger muscle cars if it's going to complete globally. That's what tanked them all in 2008.
