    Part of advertising should say bullet proof, Saudi assassin squad proof and have cup holders.

    I could be interested if it had stealth qualities
    and could not be detected by speed cameras/radar,especially those ones that determine your average speed from point A to point B.

    I've found that the stealth capabilities for this beast is somehow not so important because the beast though looks fast has a max speed of only 140km/h (87mph). Most of the time, you don't drive your car to the max speed.

    I was thinking of those private contracted speed camera operators who patrol the inner city streets where the speed limit is usually 50 or 60 km/h

    If you truly need that as your personal vehicle going to Walmart or the mall etc.., may I suggest getting a different job or move to a different city.
    Also if I need ballistic protection I would rather buy an uparmored 'regular' car instead of something that's obviously built like an armored vehicle.. in which case if I'm a bad guy I would bringing something a lil bigger than a 9mm with me.

    Supercar Collector's! they'll still be rich guys! Remember "oil is the life blood of the engine of Democracy" the "Doctor of Democracy", LOL.

    The United States is energy independent thanks to President Trump, the Green New Deal will starve and freeze the whole world, it takes lots of oil to produce food and move it to consumers!
