"Yes. It seems a little pricey Now, we're definitely getting into Porsche panamericana turbo. Taicang Turbo. Numbers but. Let's. Hear what you get yes here here's what you get and I WANNA make sure I get this right. So they start at about six hundred, seventy horsepower they will top out at one thousand, eighty horsepower you can get a range of over five hundred miles I think I read something saying they're going for five hundred twelve miles now again I don't know the exact configuration that's the most range I don't know if that means the most horsepower and the biggest batteries issue that range it could. Entry level long range low power. How you at Horsepower Idiots range in whatever. So Up to five, hundred and something or a range, a thousand eighty horsepower. Big Car big car dual motor one in the front one in the rear. Zero to sixty in its thousand eighty horsepower range under two point five seconds. Okay but. Runs the quarter mile in nine point nine seconds this they run nine. You could break ten seconds in this thing and I was an I can't imagine it's going to do it three times in a row of sure the batteries the temperature whatever and I couldn't imagine if you ran, let's say three I don't know drag radio four drag radio. Probably would shatter I don't think that's their intention certainly. Can't imagine it would be by come on. Two and a half seconds court zero to sixty. Basically running. Ten flat nine point nine seconds in the quarter mile that's insane. Building Right now, a four-door base with a parachute. But this doesn't have one and you can plug it in. You can plug it in. Here's the thing is. Built you brought up a good example. You can build your charger as crazy as you want and that's on you. Okay. Now, you make a car like this that runs nine ninety s in the quarter mile. Some of the responsibility for lack of better term is gonNA. Lie in the hands of the manufacturer. So what sort of crazy electronics nannies and all kinds of things do they need to do to try to make it as safe as possible? We've seen this with Gotti who got run when that came out. They said, Hey, it's gonNA crazy top speed but you need to like stop the car pull it over change the key put it in a race mode hunkered down and make sure the seat belts on and going a straight line and as soon as you sort of twitch the wheel a little too far to the left right shuts down that crazy race like. You know it doesn't want you to like they're doing everything they can. I, can almost guarantee it costs Bugatti more money to make that thing safe that it did cost them to create the amount of. Narrow. Dynamics that have right of us. You know. So I wonder why is going to do? Because we want people that enjoy this car and have fun I would love to dry. It looks Kinda cool and this is bat shit crazy speeds. But I I. I don't WanNa go around in circles in this thing just like anybody right? So it would. Be Interesting to test one of these out. But I like what they're doing. They seem to have pretty good management. The numbers are coming in pretty. A favorable I think i. let's just see if it turns out to be something other than a care. That's all I can say yeah let's see what it does. Let's see if they launch on time. Everybody's saying now is like, Hey, if you're interested give us a bunch of deposits so we can raise another four, hundred million dollars who can actually make it. You know because all we have is. And and The guys at Nissan we spoke to them at least they're not. They're not hiding behind some of the financial trouble. So like hey were around, we know how do it? We're focusing on our core product a were you know we're borrowing some money were. Pairing Ganor lineup or focusing on our cash cows, rogue and Pathfinder but they straight up told me like we were gonNA make threes prototypes. Launched them in three parts of the world and they said what just due to budget cuts we made one zero prototype and we're GONNA launch virtually or around the around the world I've got no problem with that that sounds responsible today. Great, and if there's enough by guys will make the car everyone will do happy. We don't need three prototypes. So people can see a person, take the one prototype. See How people react if you like it. Let's go around. Let's do it. And make it happen. But all right. All the boring car shit let's get into. Talking about the BMW itself we are at you as you guys have been. Getting the BMW ready to sell. Goods tune pretty good. And most of the conversations of explanations descriptions that you have turned out negative contrary to this story. Yes, right. So It's taken a lot of work to get it notre. I'm just GonNa, give you right. We hit four hundred and ninety four horsepower. With this thing, which is a fantastic. Number I'm GONNA, pull up via, pull up the the the Dino Sheet Right, now roy quick over while we're doing this We did. So we took it to world motorsports here end in. Torrance. They have a beautiful in ground dino whole Dino Sal. Chassis dyno, they use a Mustang, Dino. So those of you familiar with Donald Jet Mustang Donald you know the numbers could be a little bit conservative. But. Also, their Dino Excel is wind tunnel Dino. So they also do a lot of a Lamborghini in porsches Porsche turbos so they haven't all wheel drive dino but when you run the two wheel drive car the. Of Barrels they the rollers they spin with the car. You get sort of a real world a Aaron speed and everything which is interesting is. The. Be. Yeah I got video I've got video I'M GONNA post up with the show so you guys can can see The The one to one ratio, which is the gear ratio you run on the dino and a lot of cars, its fourth gear in the three because a six feeds, the one to one is not to our drives its fifth year so. Getting the horsepower number getting your eight thousand Rpi. In fifth gear home, you'd be doing one hundred and eighty miles an hour. So, we did a few runs in fifth gear, and then there is a way to configure the dino by putting in. The ratios of the transmission. Little tell you. So we can do a fourth year pass. So what happens is is We've made four, hundred, ninety, four, horsepower, four, hundred, seventy, four. Pound feet of Torque. And then there is a little bit of a translation in the in the gears. So on the on the screen, it's four, ninety, four on the printout. It said four, eighty, nine. So forty nine point something we're we're looking at a four horsepower difference by. We made four hundred, ninety basically horsepower on Shitty Ninety one California, pump gas you take this car anywhere you're well over five hundred rear rear wheel horsepower and that the part that I am excited about is. We. Changed the supercharge from an old Vortex v two to the upgraded. Vortex. V to Ti, we improve the cooling system which the computer response to it doesn't have the pullback as much timing and knock centers and all that stuff up. When when before I when I bought the car before we made any changes in the car was. had. Some cooling issues and stuff we ran on the dino on another Mustang Dino different facility but Mustang dine out. and. We made four hundred and ten rear wheel horsepower. So the changes between. The computer, the exhaust. System The swap out the super charger just getting his dialed in more a we made ninety extra horsepower roughly eighty to ninety horsepower. So I'm very happy with with Damn near five hundred rear wheel horse are I will tell you that. It's it's got a pretty safe tune in. It's a little on the rich side. You probably could lean it out a little bit. I'll be perfectly honest with you. The car runs great. It's fastest how I..
